Amos 7:1-6

ESV 1 This is what the Lord GOD showed me: behold, he was forming locusts when the latter growth was just beginning to sprout, and behold, it was the latter growth after the king's mowings. NIV 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. ESV 2 When they had finished eating the grass of the land, I said, "O Lord GOD, please forgive! How can Jacob stand? He is so small!" NIV 2 When they had stripped the land clean, I cried out, "Sovereign LORD, forgive! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!" ESV 3 The LORD relented concerning this: "It shall not be," said the LORD. NIV 3 So the LORD relented. "This will not happen," the LORD said. ESV 4 This is what 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. NIV 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. ESV 5 Then I said, "O Lord GOD, please cease! How can Jacob stand? He is so small!" NIV 5 Then I cried out, "Sovereign LORD, I beg you, stop! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!" ESV 6 The LORD relented concerning this: "This also shall not be," said the Lord GOD. NIV 6 So the LORD relented. "This will not happen either," the Sovereign LORD said.
