First Vision: Locusts

1 The Lord God showed me this: He was forming a swarm of locustsa at the time the spring crop first began to sprout-after the cutting of the king's hay.
2 When the locusts finished eating the vegetation of the land, I said, "Lord God , please forgive! How will Jacob survive since he is so small?"
3 The Lord relented concerning this. "It will not happen," He said.

Second Vision: Fire

4 The Lord God showed me this: The Lord God was calling for a judgment by fire.b It consumed the great deep and devoured the land.
5 Then I said, "Lord God , please stop! How will Jacob survive since he is so small?"
6 The Lord relented concerning this. "This will not happen either," said the Lord God .
