Amos 7:1-6

NRS 1 This is what the Lord God showed me: he was forming locusts at the time the latter growth began to sprout (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. NRS 2 When they had finished eating the grass of the land, I said, "O Lord God, forgive, I beg you! 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!" NRS 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. NRS 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. 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. NRS 5 Then I said, "O Lord God, cease, I beg you! 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!" NRS 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.
