New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
4 This is what the Lord God showed me: the Lord God was calling for a shower of 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 beg you! 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 relented 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.
