Amos 7:4-6

The Fire

4 After that, the Lord God showed to me a vision of a fire. He was ready to send it to punish us. I saw that it caused the deep sea to become dry. It also burnt all the land. 5 I said, ‘Lord God, please do not do that! Your people cannot continue to live. We are too weak!’

6 Then the Lord decided not to do it. He said to me, ‘That too will not happen.’
