Locusts, Fire and a Plumb Line

1 This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me:1 He was preparing swarms of locusts2 after the king's share had been harvested and just as the second crop was coming up. 2 When they had stripped the land clean,3 I cried out, "Sovereign LORD, forgive! How can Jacob survive?4 He is so small!5" 3 So the LORD relented.6 "This will not happen," the LORD said.7 4 This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me: The Sovereign LORD was calling for judgment by fire;8 it dried up the great deep and devoured9 the land. 5 Then I cried out, "Sovereign LORD, I beg you, stop! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!10" 6 So the LORD relented.11 "This will not happen either," the Sovereign LORD said.12
