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.
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!"
3 The LORD repented concerning this; "It shall not be," said the LORD.
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.
5 Then I said, "O Lord GOD, cease, I beseech thee! How can Jacob stand? He is so small!"
6 The LORD repented concerning this; "This also shall not be," said the Lord GOD.
