Amos 7:1-3

Locusts, Fire, and a Plumb Line 1This is what the Lord GOD showed me: he was forming locusts at the time the latter growth began to sprout (it was the latter growth after the king's mowings).2When they had finished eating the grass of the land, I said, β€œO Lord GOD, forgive, I beg you! How can Jacob stand? He is so small!”3The Lord relented concerning this; β€œIt shall not be,” said the Lord.
