“Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’
For you shall go to all to whom I send you,
And lwhatever I command you, you shall speak.
8 mDo not be afraid of their faces,
For nI am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord.
9 Then the Lord put forth His hand and otouched my mouth, and the Lord said to me:
“Behold, I have pput My words in your mouth.
10 qSee, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms,
To rroot out and to pull down,
To destroy and to throw down,
To build and to plant.”
