    Clarke's Commentary on Jeremiah 1:7

    Whatsoever I command thee - It is my words and message, not thine own, that thou shalt deliver. I shall teach thee; therefore thy youth and inexperience can be no hinderance.

    Barnes' Notes on Jeremiah 1:7

    Jeremiah suggested two difficulties, the first inexperience, the second timidity. God now removes the first of these. Inexperience is no obstacle where the duty is simple obedience His timidity is removed by the promise given him in the next verse.

    Wesley's Notes on Jeremiah 1:7
