Warning Visions

1 1This is what the Lord GOD showed me: behold, 2he was forming locusts when the latter growth was just beginning to sprout, and behold, 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, please forgive! 3How can Jacob stand? He is so small!"
3 4The LORD relented concerning this: "It shall not be," said the LORD.
4 5This is what the Lord GOD showed me: behold, the Lord GOD was calling 6for a judgment by fire, and it devoured the great deep and was eating up the land.
5 Then I said, "O Lord GOD, please cease! 7How can Jacob stand? He is so small!"
6 8The LORD relented concerning this: "This also shall not be," said the Lord GOD.
