Jeremiah 1:9

Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in your mouth.
Read Chapter 1

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Mouth; perhaps (Haydock) with a coal, by means of an angel, (Isaias vi. 5.) in a sort of dream. He found himself changed into a new man.

John Chrysostom

AD 407
I say this, for Isaiah said, “The Lord has given me a learned tongue that I should know when I ought to speak a word.” Furthermore, what of Jeremiah? When he was sent, he then was inspired by God. And what of Ezekiel? For, when he had eaten the chapter of the book, he then spoke prophetically. - "Homilies on the Gospel of John 69" ...

Tertullian of Carthage

AD 220
The Scripture narrative goes on to explain in a popular manner that “they did not understand that he spoke to them about the Father,” although they ought certainly to have known that the Father’s words were uttered in the Son because they read in Jeremiah, “And the Lord said to me, ‘Behold, I have put my words in your mouth.’ ” - "Against Praxeas 22" ...

Theophilus of Alexandria

AD 412
The Lord has said to his prophet, “See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms to root out and to pull down and to destroy and … to build and to plant.” In every age he bestows the same grace on his church, that his body may be preserved intact and that the poison of heretical opinions may nowhere prevail over it. And now also do we see the words fulfilled. - "Letter 90, To Epiphanius" ...

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
