"You will sow much seed in the field but harvest little, because locusts will devour it.
You will plant and cultivate vineyards but not drink the wine or gather [the grapes], because worms will eat them.
The Lord God showed me this: He was forming a swarm of locusts at the time the spring crop first began to sprout-- after the cutting of the king's hay.
When the locusts finished eating the vegetation of the land, I said, "Lord God, please forgive! How will Jacob survive since he is so small?"
