[b-hebrew] Jeremiah 1:5

I have a question about the Yiqtol verb in Jeremiah 1:5. 

1. Am I correct to expect a Qatal form of יצר instead of a Yiqtol after the temporal adverbial prepositional phrase בטרם in verse 5?

 

2. Is the sense of the verse some kind of modal use of Yiqtol: "Before I could form you in the womb I knew you."? Or are these even the right kind of questions to be asking?

 

Just wanted to get your thoughts.
