Thus the Lord GOD showed me, and behold, He was forming a 1locust-swarm when the spring crop began to sprout. And behold, the spring crop was after the king's mowing.
And it came about, when it had 2finished eating the vegetation of the land, that I said, "3Lord GOD, please pardon! How can Jacob stand, For he is 4small?"
The LORD 5changed His mind about this. "It shall not be," said the LORD.
