Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child.
All Commentaries on Jeremiah 1:6 Go To Jeremiah 1
Gregory the Theologian
It is a good thing even to hold back from God for a little while—as did the great Moses in ancient times, and Jeremiah later on—and then to run readily to him when he calls. This is what Aaron and Isaiah did—as long as both are done with a respectful spirit. Do the former because you lack strength. Do the latter because of the power of God who calls you.
