This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me: The Sovereign LORD was calling for judgment by fire;1 it dried up the great deep and devoured2 the land.
Then I cried out, "Sovereign LORD, I beg you, stop! How can Jacob survive? He is so small!3"
So the LORD relented.4 "This will not happen either," the Sovereign LORD said.5
