Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:1 - The following is the message which God revealed to Habakkuk the prophet:
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:2 - How long, LORD, must I cry for help? But you do not listen! I call out to you, "Violence!" But you do not intervene!
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:3 - Why do you force me to witness injustice? Why do you put up with wrongdoing? Destruction and violence confront me; conflict is present and one must endure strife.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:4 - For this reason the law lacks power, and justice is never carried out. Indeed, the wicked intimidate the innocent. For this reason justice is perverted.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:5 - "Look at the nations and pay attention! You will be shocked and amazed! For I will do something in your lifetime that you will not believe even though you are forewarned.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:6 - Look, I am about to empower the Babylonians, that ruthless and greedy nation. They sweep across the surface of the earth, seizing dwelling places that do not belong to them.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:7 - They are frightening and terrifying; they decide for themselves what is right.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:8 - Their horses are faster than leopards and more alert than wolves in the desert. Their horses gallop, their horses come a great distance; like a vulture they swoop down quickly to devour their prey.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:9 - All of them intend to do violence; every face is determined. They take prisoners as easily as one scoops up sand.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:10 - They mock kings and laugh at rulers. They laugh at every fortified city; they build siege ramps and capture them.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:11 - They sweep by like the wind and pass on. But the one who considers himself a god will be held guilty."
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:12 - LORD, you have been active from ancient times; my sovereign God, you are immortal. LORD, you have made them your instrument of judgment. Protector, you have appointed them as your instrument of punishment.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:13 - You are too just to tolerate evil; you are unable to condone wrongdoing. So why do you put up with such treacherous people? Why do you say nothing when the wicked devour those more righteous than they are?
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:14 - You made people like fish in the sea, like animals in the sea that have no ruler.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:15 - The Babylonian tyrant pulls them all up with a fishhook; he hauls them in with his throw net. When he catches them in his dragnet, he is very happy.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:16 - Because of his success he offers sacrifices to his throw net and burns incense to his dragnet; for because of them he has plenty of food, and more than enough to eat.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:17 - Will he then continue to fill and empty his throw net? Will he always destroy nations and spare none?
