Amos 7:1-3

Symbolic Visions of Judgment

7:1 The sovereign Lord showed me this: I saw 1  him making locusts just as the crops planted late 2  were beginning to sprout. (The crops planted late sprout after the royal harvest. 3 ) 7:2 When they had completely consumed the earth’s vegetation, I said,

“Sovereign Lord, forgive Israel! 4 

How can Jacob survive? 5 

He is too weak!” 6 

7:3 The Lord decided not to do this. 7  “It will not happen,” the Lord said.
