“Before I created you in the womb I knew you, _________;
before you were born I set you apart;

“Ah, Lord God,” I said, “I don’t know how to speak
because I’m only a child.”
The Lord responded,
“Don’t say, ‘I’m only a child, _________.’
Where I send you, you must go;
what I tell you, you must say.
Don’t be afraid of them,
because I’m with you to rescue you, ________,”
declares the Lord. - Jeremiah 1:4-8 (Common English Bible)
