Yahweh’s call to Jeremiah (Jer 1:4-1:5)

“Now the word of Yahweh

Came to me saying.

‘Before I formed you in the womb,

I knew you.

Before you were born,

I consecrated you.

I appointed you

A prophet to the nations.’”

The word of Yahweh came to Jeremiah. Yahweh told him that he was predestined to be a prophet before he was even formed in the womb. Yahweh knew him already. Before he was born, he was consecrated as a prophet. Yahweh has appointed him to be a prophet for all the nations.
