The use of in Jer. i 6 is best understood, not as a precise indicator delineating Jeremiah's chronological age, but as a rhetorical device in which a pray-er appeals to their weak or insignificant status in order to summon the Deity's compassion. While the appeal is ultimately ineffective in eluding the prophetic calling, Yahweh's response to it is nothing short of an oracle of salvation/deliverance, which shows Jeremiah's plea to have been heard and answered.
