The Call of Jeremiah
4 The word of the Lord came to me, saying,
5 
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you,
    before you were born I set you apart;
    I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
6 “Alas, Sovereign Lord,” I said, “I do not know how to speak; I am too young.”
7 But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. 8 Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord.
9 Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, “I have put my words in your mouth. 10 See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant.”
Psalm 71
1 
In you, Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame.
2 
In your righteousness, rescue me and deliver me; turn your ear to me and save me.
3 
Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go;
give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.
4 
Deliver me, my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of those who are evil and cruel.
5 
For you have been my hope, Sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth.
6 
From birth I have relied on you; you brought me forth from my mother’s womb.
    I will ever praise you.
