    so you cannot understand the work of God,=20

    5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew [1] you,=20
    before you were born I set you apart;=20
    I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.

    Footnotes: 1:5 Or chose"

    Of course, as time is a created thing, like a table, maybe the "knowing" =
    is in the eternal now. =20
