Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:1 - The burden that Habakkuk the prophet hath seen:

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:2 - Till when, O Jehovah, have I cried, And Thou dost not hear? I cry unto Thee -- 'Violence,' and Thou dost not save.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:3 - Why dost Thou shew me iniquity, And perversity dost cause to behold? And spoiling and violence are before me, And there is strife, and contention doth lift itself up,

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:4 - Therefore doth law cease, And judgment doth not go forth for ever, For the wicked is compassing the righteous, Therefore wrong judgment goeth forth.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:5 - Look ye on nations, and behold and marvel greatly. For a work He is working in your days, Ye do not believe though it is declared.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:6 - For, lo, I am raising up the Chaldeans, The bitter and hasty nation, That is going to the broad places of earth, To occupy tabernacles not its own.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:7 - Terrible and fearful it is, From itself its judgment and its excellency go forth.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:8 - Swifter than leopards have been its horses, And sharper than evening wolves, And increased have its horsemen, Even its horsemen from afar come in, They fly as an eagle, hasting to consume.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:9 - Wholly for violence it doth come in, Their faces swallowing up the east wind, And it doth gather as the sand a captivity.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:10 - And at kings it doth scoff, And princes are a laughter to it, At every fenced place it doth laugh, And it heapeth up dust, and captureth it.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:11 - Then passed on hath the spirit, Yea, he doth transgress, And doth ascribe this his power to his god.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:12 - Art not Thou of old, O Jehovah, my God, my Holy One? We do not die, O Jehovah, For judgment Thou hast appointed it, And, O Rock, for reproof Thou hast founded it.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:13 - Purer of eyes than to behold evil, To look on perverseness Thou art not able, Why dost Thou behold the treacherous? Thou keepest silent when the wicked Doth swallow the more righteous than he,

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:14 - And Thou makest man as fishes of the sea, As a creeping thing -- none ruling over him.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:15 - Each of them with a hook he hath brought up, He doth catch it in his net, and gathereth it in his drag, Therefore he doth joy and rejoice.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:16 - Therefore he doth sacrifice to his net, And doth make perfume to his drag, For by them is his portion fertile, and his food fat.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 1:17 - Doth he therefore empty his net, And continually to slay nations spare not?
