Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:1 -

The pronouncement that the prophet Habakkuk saw.

Habakkuk’s First Prayer

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:2 -

How long, LORD, must I call for help

and you do not listen

or cry out to you about violence

and you do not save?

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:3 -

Why do you force me to look at injustice?

Why do you tolerate[fn] wrongdoing?

Oppression and violence are right in front of me.

Strife is ongoing, and conflict escalates.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:4 -

This is why the law is ineffective

and justice never emerges.

For the wicked restrict the righteous;

therefore, justice comes out perverted.

God’s First Answer

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:5 -

Look at the nations[fn] and observe —

be utterly astounded!

For I am doing something in your days

that you will not believe

when you hear about it.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:6 -

Look! I am raising up the Chaldeans,[fn]

that bitter, impetuous nation

that marches across the earth’s open spaces

to seize territories not its own.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:7 -

They are fierce and terrifying;

their views of justice and sovereignty

stem from themselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:8 -

Their horses are swifter than leopards

and more fierce[fn] than wolves of the night.

Their horsemen charge ahead;

their horsemen come from distant lands.

They fly like eagles, swooping to devour.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:9 -

All of them come to do violence;

their faces are set in determination.[fn]

They gather prisoners like sand.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:10 -

They mock kings,

and rulers are a joke to them.

They laugh at every fortress

and build siege ramps to capture it.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:11 -

Then they sweep by like the wind

and pass through.

They are guilty;[fn] their strength is their god.

Habakkuk’s Second Prayer

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:12 -

Are you not from eternity, LORD my God?

My Holy One, you[fn] will not die.

LORD, you appointed them to execute judgment;

my Rock, you destined them to punish us.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:13 -

Your eyes are too pure to look on evil,

and you cannot tolerate wrongdoing.

So why do you tolerate those who are treacherous?

Why are you silent

while one[fn] who is wicked swallows up

one[fn] who is more righteous than himself?

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:14 -

You have made mankind

like the fish of the sea,

like marine creatures that have no ruler.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:15 -

The Chaldeans pull them all up with a hook,

catch them in their dragnet,

and gather them in their fishing net;

that is why they are glad and rejoice.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:16 -

That is why they sacrifice to their dragnet

and burn incense to their fishing net,

for by these things their portion is rich

and their food plentiful.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:17 -

Will they therefore empty their net

and continually slaughter nations without mercy?
