King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Thus hath the Lord GOD shewed unto me; and, behold, he formed grasshoppers in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth; and, lo, it was the latter growth after the king's mowings. 1 This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me: He was preparing swarms of locusts after the king's share had been harvested and just as the second crop was coming up.
2 And it came to pass, that when they had made an end of eating the grass of the land, then I said , O Lord GOD, forgive , I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise ? for he is small. 2 When they had stripped the land clean, I cried out, "Sovereign LORD, forgive! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!"
3 The LORD repented for this: It shall not be, saith the LORD. 3 So the LORD relented. "This will not happen," the LORD said.
