Amos 7:1-6

NLT 1 The Sovereign LORD showed me a vision. I saw him preparing to send a vast swarm of locusts over the land. This was after the king's share had been harvested from the fields and as the main crop was coming up. 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. NLT 2 In my vision the locusts ate everything in sight that was green. Then I said, "O Sovereign LORD, please forgive your people! Unless you relent, Israel will not survive, for we are only a small nation." NIV 2 When they had stripped the land clean, I cried out, "Sovereign LORD, forgive! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!" NLT 3 So the LORD relented and did not fulfill the vision. "I won't do it," he said. NIV 3 So the LORD relented. "This will not happen," the LORD said. NLT 4 Then the Sovereign LORD showed me another vision. I saw him preparing to punish his people with a great fire. The fire had burned up the depths of the sea and was devouring the entire 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. NLT 5 Then I said, "O Sovereign LORD, please don't do it. Unless you relent, Israel will not survive, for we are only a small nation." NIV 5 Then I cried out, "Sovereign LORD, I beg you, stop! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!" NLT 6 Then the LORD turned from this plan, too. "I won't do that either," said the Sovereign LORD. NIV 6 So the LORD relented. "This will not happen either," the Sovereign LORD said.
