CEB 7 says the LORD. I also withheld rain from you when there were still three months to the harvest. I allowed no rain to fall on one city, no rain to fall on another city. One field was rained on, and the field dried up where it didn't rain. NRS 7 And I also withheld the rain from you when there were still three months to the harvest; I would send rain on one city, and send no rain on another city; one field would be rained upon, and the field on which it did not rain withered; CEB 8 So two or three thirsty towns went to one city to drink water, and weren't satisfied; yet you didn't return to me, NRS 8 so two or three towns wandered to one town to drink water, and were not satisfied; yet you did not return to me, says the Lord.
