Amos 7:4-6 KJV

4 Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me: and, behold, the Lord GOD called to contend by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and did eat up a part.
5 Then said I, O Lord GOD, cease , I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise ? for he is small.
6 The LORD repented for this: This also shall not be, saith the Lord GOD.
