Warning Visions

1 1This is what the Lord GOD showed me: behold, 2he was forming locusts when the latter growth was just beginning to sprout, and behold, it was the latter growth after the king's mowings. 2 When they had finished eating the grass of the land, I said, "O Lord GOD, please forgive! 3How can Jacob stand? He is so small!" 3 4The LORD relented concerning this: "It shall not be," said the LORD. 4 5This is what the Lord GOD showed me: behold, the Lord GOD was calling 6for a judgment by fire, and it devoured the great deep and was eating up the land. 5 Then I said, "O Lord GOD, please cease! 7How can Jacob stand? He is so small!" 6 8The LORD relented concerning this: "This also shall not be," said the Lord GOD. 7 9This is what he showed me: behold, the Lord was standing beside a wall built with 10a plumb line, with a plumb line in his hand. 8 And the LORD said to me, 11"Amos, what do you see?" And I said, "A plumb line." Then the Lord said, "Behold, I am setting 12a plumb line in the midst of my people Israel; 13I will never again pass by them; 9 14the high places of Isaac shall be made desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste, and I will rise against 15the house of Jeroboam with the sword."
