The Prophet Is Called
4Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,H1697H3068H5595Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.H2962H3335H990H3045H3318H7358H6942H5414H5030H14716Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.H559H162H136H3069H3045H1696H52887But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.H3068H559H559H5288H3212H7971H6680H16968Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.H3372H6440H5337H5002H30689Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.H3068H7971H3027H5060H6310H3068H559H5414H1697H631010See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.H7200H3117H6485H1471H4467H5428H5422H6H2040H1129H519311Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree.H1697H3068H559H3414H7200H559H7200H4731H824712Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.H559H3068H3190H7200H8245H1697H621313And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething pot; and the face thereof is toward the north.H1697H3068H8145H559H7200H559H7200H5301H5518H6440H6440H682814Then the LORD said unto me, Out of the north an evil shall break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.H3068H559H6828H7451H6605H3427H77615For, lo, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north, saith the LORD; and they shall come, and they shall set every one his throne at the entering of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all the walls thereof round about, and against all the cities of Judah.H7121H4940H4467H6828H5002H3068H935H5414H376H3678H6607H8179H3389H2346H5439H5892H306316And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands.H1696H4941H5921H7451H5800H6999H312H430H7812H4639H302717Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak unto them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces, lest I confound thee before them.H247H4975H6965H1696H6680H2865H6440H2865H644018For, behold, I have made thee this day a defenced city, and an iron pillar, and brasen walls against the whole land, against the kings of Judah, against the princes thereof, against the priests thereof, and against the people of the land.H589H5414H3117H4013H5892H1270H5982H5178H2346H776H4428H3063H8269H3548H5971H77619And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.H3898H3201H5002H3068H5337
