Jeremiah 1

1:1 The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, of the priests
 that [were] in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin:
1:2 To whom the word of the LORD came in the days of Josiah the
 son of Amon king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.
1:3 It came also in the days of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah king
 of Judah, to the end of the eleventh year of Zedekiah the son
 of Josiah king of Judah, to the carrying away of Jerusalem
 captive in the fifth month.
1:4 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
1:5 Before I formed thee in embryo I knew thee; and before thou
 wast born I sanctified thee, [and] I ordained thee a prophet to
 the nations.
1:6 Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I
 [am] a child.
1:7 But the LORD said to me, Say not, I [am] a child: for thou
 shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatever I command
 thee thou shalt speak.
1:8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I [am] with thee to
 deliver thee, saith the LORD.
1:9 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And
 the LORD said to me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.
1:10 See, 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.
1:11 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, Jeremiah,
 What seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond-tree.
1:12 Then said the LORD to me, Thou hast well seen: for I will
 hasten my word to perform it.
1:13 And the word of the LORD came to me the second time,
 saying, What seest thou? And I said, I see a seething pot; and
 its face [is] towards the north.
1:14 Then the LORD said to me, Out of the north an evil shall
 break forth upon all the inhabitants of the land.
1:15 For 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 entrance of the gates of Jerusalem,
 and against all its walls around, and against all the cities of
1:16 And I will utter my judgments against them touching all
 their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense
 to other gods, and worshiped the works of their own hands.
1:17 Thou therefore gird up thy loins, and arise, and speak to
 them all that I command thee: be not dismayed at their faces,
 lest I confound thee before them.
1:18 For behold, I have made thee this day a fortified city, and
 an iron pillar, and brazen walls against the whole land,
 against the kings of Judah, against her princes, against her
 priests, and against the people of the land.
1:19 And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not
 prevail against thee; for I [am] with thee, saith the LORD, to
 deliver thee.
