Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
4 Thus the Lord GOD showed me: behold, the Lord GOD was calling for a judgment by fire, and it devoured the great deep and was eating up the land. 4 This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me: The Sovereign LORD was calling for judgment by fire; it dried up the great deep and devoured the land.
5 Then I said, "O Lord GOD, cease, I beseech thee! How can Jacob stand? He is so small!" 5 Then I cried out, "Sovereign LORD, I beg you, stop! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!"
6 The LORD repented concerning this; "This also shall not be," said the Lord GOD. 6 So the LORD relented. "This will not happen either," the Sovereign LORD said.
