Amos 7:1-6

RSV 1 Thus the Lord GOD showed me: behold, he was forming locusts in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth; and lo, 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. RSV 2 When they had finished eating the grass of the land, I said, "O Lord GOD, forgive, I beseech thee! 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!" RSV 3 The LORD repented concerning this; "It shall not be," said the LORD. NIV 3 So the LORD relented. "This will not happen," the LORD said. RSV 4 Thus 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. RSV 5 Then I said, "O Lord GOD, cease, I beseech thee! 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!" RSV 6 The LORD repented 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.
