Old Testament - Fourth Sunday after Epiphany
Jeremiah 1.4-10
Now the word of the Lord came to me saying,
 ‘Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
and before you were born I consecrated you;
I appointed you a prophet to the nations.’
 Then I said, ‘Ah, Lord God ! Truly I do not know how to speak, for I am only a boy.’
 But the Lord said to me,
‘Do not say, “I am only a boy”;
for you shall go to all to whom I send you,
and you shall speak whatever I command you.
 Do not be afraid of them,
for I am with you to deliver you,
says the Lord .’
 Then the Lord put out his hand and touched my mouth; and the Lord said to me,
‘Now I have put my words in your mouth.
 See, today I appoint you over nations and over kingdoms,
to pluck up and to pull down,
to destroy and to overthrow,
to build and to plant.’
