Jeremiah 1 (WEBP)
 The words of Jeremiah the son of Hilkiah, one of the priests who were in Anathoth in the land of Benjamin.
 Yahweh’s° word came to him in the days of Josiah the son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign.
 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.
 Now Yahweh’s word came to me, saying,
 “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I sanctified you. I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
 Then I said, “Ah, Lord§ Yahweh! Behold,§ I don’t know how to speak; for I am a child.”
 But Yahweh said to me, “Don’t say, ‘I am a child;’ for you must go to whomever I send you, and you must say whatever I command you.
 Don’t be afraid because of them, for I am with you to rescue you,” says Yahweh.
 Then Yahweh stretched out his hand and touched my mouth. Then Yahweh said to me, “Behold, I have put my words in your mouth.
 Behold, I have today set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to uproot and to tear down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.”
 Moreover Yahweh’s word came to me, saying, “Jeremiah, what do you see?” I said, “I see a branch of an almond tree.”
 Then Yahweh said to me, “You have seen well; for I watch over my word to perform it.”
 Yahweh’s word came to me the second time, saying, “What do you see?” I said, “I see a boiling cauldron; and it is tipping away from the north.”
 Then Yahweh said to me, “Out of the north, evil will break out on all the inhabitants of the land.
 For behold, I will call all the families of the kingdoms of the north,” says Yahweh. “They will come, and they will each set his throne at the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem, and against all its walls all around, and against all the cities of Judah.
 I will utter my judgments against them concerning all their wickedness, in that they have forsaken me, and have burned incense to other gods, and worshiped the works of their own hands.
 “You therefore put your belt on your waist, arise, and say to them all that I command you. Don’t be dismayed at them, lest I dismay you before them.
 For behold, I have made you today a fortified city, an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, against its princes, against its priests, and against the people of the land.
 They will fight against you, but they will not prevail against you; for I am with you”, says Yahweh, “to rescue you.”
Jeremiah 1:2 “Yahweh” is God’s proper Name, sometimes rendered “LORD” (all caps) in other translations.
Jeremiah 1:6a The word translated “Lord” is “Adonai.”
Jeremiah 1:6b “Behold”, from “הִנֵּה”, means look at, take notice, observe, see, or gaze at. It is often used as an interjection.

Jeremiah 1 (KJVS)
 The words H1697 of Jeremiah H3414 the son H1121 of Hilkiah H2518, of the priests H3548 that [were] in Anathoth H6068 in the land H776 of Benjamin H1144:
 To whom the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came in the days H3117 of Josiah H2977 the son H1121 of Amon H526 king H4428 of Judah H3063, in the thirteenth H7969 H6240 year H8141 of his reign H4427 (8800).
 It came also in the days H3117 of Jehoiakim H3079 the son H1121 of Josiah H2977 king H4428 of Judah H3063, unto the end H8552 (8800) of the eleventh H6249 H6240 year H8141 of Zedekiah H6667 the son H1121 of Josiah H2977 king H4428 of Judah H3063, unto the carrying away H1540 of Jerusalem H3389 captive H1540 (8800) in the fifth H2549 month H2320.
 Then the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came unto me, saying H559 (8800),
 Before H2962 I formed H3335 (8799) thee in the belly H990 I knew H3045 (8804) thee; and before thou camest forth H3318 (8799) out of the womb H7358 I sanctified H6942 (8689) thee, [and] I ordained H5414 (8804) thee a prophet H5030 unto the nations H1471.
 Then said H559 (8799) I, Ah H162, Lord H136 GOD H3069! behold, I cannot H3045 (8804) speak H1696 (8763): for I [am] a child H5288.
 But the LORD H3068 said H559 (8799) unto me, Say H559 (8799) not, I [am] a child H5288: for thou shalt go H3212 (8799) to all that I shall send H7971 (8799) thee, and whatsoever I command H6680 (8762) thee thou shalt speak H1696 (8762).
 Be not afraid H3372 (8799) of their faces H6440: for I [am] with thee to deliver H5337 (8687) thee, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
 Then the LORD H3068 put forth H7971 (8799) his hand H3027, and touched H5060 (8686) my mouth H6310. And the LORD H3068 said H559 (8799) unto me, Behold, I have put H5414 (8804) my words H1697 in thy mouth H6310.
 See H7200 (8798), I have this day H3117 set H6485 (8689) thee over the nations H1471 and over the kingdoms H4467, to root out H5428 (8800), and to pull down H5422 (8800), and to destroy H6 (8687), and to throw down H2040 (8800), to build H1129 (8800), and to plant H5193 (8800).
 Moreover the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came unto me, saying H559 (8800), Jeremiah H3414, what seest H7200 (8802) thou? And I said H559 (8799), I see H7200 (8802) a rod H4731 of an almond tree H8247.
 Then said H559 (8799) the LORD H3068 unto me, Thou hast well H3190 (8689) seen H7200 (8800): for I will hasten H8245 (8802) my word H1697 to perform H6213 (8800) it.
 And the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came unto me the second time H8145, saying H559 (8800), What seest H7200 (8802) thou? And I said H559 (8799), I see H7200 (8802) a seething H5301 (8803) pot H5518; and the face H6440 thereof [is] toward H6440 the north H6828.
 Then the LORD H3068 said H559 (8799) unto me, Out of the north H6828 an evil H7451 shall break forth H6605 (8735) upon all the inhabitants H3427 (8802) of the land H776.
 For, lo, I will call H7121 (8802) all the families H4940 of the kingdoms H4467 of the north H6828, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068; and they shall come H935 (8804), and they shall set H5414 (8804) every one H376 his throne H3678 at the entering H6607 of the gates H8179 of Jerusalem H3389, and against all the walls H2346 thereof round about H5439, and against all the cities H5892 of Judah H3063.
 And I will utter H1696 (8765) my judgments H4941 against them touching H5921 all their wickedness H7451, who have forsaken H5800 (8804) me, and have burned incense H6999 (8762) unto other H312 gods H430, and worshipped H7812 (8691) the works H4639 of their own hands H3027.
 Thou therefore gird up H247 (8799) thy loins H4975, and arise H6965 (8804), and speak H1696 (8765) unto them all that I command H6680 (8762) thee: be not dismayed H2865 (8735) at their faces H6440, lest I confound H2865 (8686) thee before H6440 them.
 For, behold, I H589 have made H5414 (8804) thee this day H3117 a defenced H4013 city H5892, and an iron H1270 pillar H5982, and brasen H5178 walls H2346 against the whole land H776, against the kings H4428 of Judah H3063, against the princes H8269 thereof, against the priests H3548 thereof, and against the people H5971 of the land H776.
 And they shall fight H3898 (8738) against thee; but they shall not prevail H3201 (8799) against thee; for I [am] with thee, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068, to deliver H5337 (8687) thee.
Young’s Literal Translation
Jeremiah 1 (YLT)
 Words of Jeremiah son of Hilkiah, of the priests who are in Anathoth, in the land of Benjamin,
 unto whom the word of Jehovah hath been in the days of Josiah son of Amon, king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign,
 and it is in the days of Jehoiakim son of Josiah, king of Judah, till the completion of the eleventh year of Zedekiah son of Josiah, king of Judah, till the removal of Jerusalem in the fifth month.
 And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying,
 ‘Before I form thee in the belly, I have known thee; and before thou comest forth from the womb I have separated thee, a prophet to nations I have made thee.’
 And I say, ‘Ah, Lord Jehovah! lo, I have not known-to speak, for I am a youth.’
 And Jehovah saith unto me, ‘Do not say, I am a youth, for to all to whom I send thee thou goest, and all that I command thee thou speakest.
 Be not afraid of their faces, for with thee am I to deliver thee,-an affirmation of Jehovah.’
 And Jehovah putteth forth His hand, and striketh against my mouth, and Jehovah saith unto me, ‘Lo, I have put my words in thy mouth.
 See, I have charged thee this day concerning the nations, and concerning the kingdoms, to pluck up, and to break down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.’
 And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying, ‘What art thou seeing, Jeremiah?’ And I say, ‘A rod of an almond tree I am seeing.’
 And Jehovah saith unto me, ‘Thou hast well seen: for I am watching over My word to do it.’
 And there is a word of Jehovah unto me a second time, saying, ‘What art thou seeing?’ And I say, ‘A blown pot I am seeing, and its face is from the north.’
 And Jehovah saith unto me, ‘From the north is the evil loosed against all inhabitants of the land.
 For, lo, I am calling for all families of the kingdoms of the north,-an affirmation of Jehovah-and they have come, and put each his throne at the opening of the gates of Jerusalem, and by its walls round about, and by all cities of Judah.
 And I have spoken My judgments with them concerning all their evil, in that they have forsaken Me, and make perfume to other gods, and bow themselves to the works of their own hands.
 ‘And thou, thou dost gird up thy loins, and hast arisen, and spoken unto them all that I command thee: be not affrighted because of them, lest I affright thee before them.
 And I, lo, I have given thee this day for a fenced city, and for an iron pillar, and for brazen walls over all the land, to the kings of Judah, to its heads, to its priests, and to the people of the land;
 and they have fought against thee, and they prevail not against thee; for with thee am I,-an affirmation of Jehovah-to deliver thee.
