The burdenH4853 whichH834 HabakkukH2265 the prophetH5030 did see.H2372
O LORD,H3068 howH5704 longH5704 shall I cry,H7768 and you will not hear!H8085 even cryH2199 out to you of violence,H2555 and you will not save!H3467
WhyH4100 do you showH7200 me iniquity,H205 and cause me to beholdH5027 grievance?H5999 for spoilingH7701 and violenceH2555 are beforeH5048 me: and there are that raiseH5375 up strifeH7379 and contention.H4066
ThereforeH5921 H3651 the lawH8451 is slacked,H6313 and judgmentH4941 does neverH3808 H5331 goH3318 forth:H3318 for the wickedH7563 does compassH3803 about the righteous;H6662 thereforeH5921 H3651 wrongH6127 judgmentH4941 proceeds.H3318
BeholdH7200 you among the heathen,H1471 and regard,H5027 and wonderH8539 marvelously:H8539 for I will workH6466 a workH6467 in your days H3117which you will not believe,H539 thoughH3588 it be toldH5608 you.
For, see,H2009 I raiseH6965 up the Chaldeans,H3778 that bitterH4751 and hastyH4116 nation,H1471 which shall marchH1980 through the breadthH4800 of the land,H776 to possessH3423 the dwelling placesH4908 that are not their's.
They are terribleH366 and dreadful:H3372 their judgmentH4941 and their dignityH7613 shall proceedH3318 of themselves.
Their horsesH5483 also are swifterH7043 than the leopards,H5246 and are more fierceH2300 than the eveningH6153 wolves:H2061 and their horsemenH6571 shall spreadH6335 themselves, and their horsemenH6571 shall comeH935 from far;H7350 they shall flyH5774 as the eagleH5404 that hastensH2363 to eat.H398
They shall comeH935 allH3605 for violence:H2555 their facesH6440 shall supH4041 up as the eastH6921 wind, and they shall gatherH622 the captivityH7628 as the sand.H2344
And they shall scoffH7046 at the kings,H4428 and the princesH7336 shall be a scornH4890 to them: they shall derideH7832 everyH3605 strongH4013 hold;H4013 for they shall heapH6651 dust,H6083 and takeH3920 it.
ThenH227 shall his mindH7307 change,H2498 and he shall passH5674 over,H5674 and offend,H816 imputing thisH2098 his powerH3581 to his god.H430
Are you not from everlasting,H6924 O LORDH3068 my God,H430 my HolyH6918 One?H6918 we shall not die.H4191 O LORD,H3068 you have ordainedH7760 them for judgment;H4941 and, O mightyH6697 God,H6697 you have establishedH3245 them for correction.H3198
You are of purerH2889 eyesH5869 than to beholdH7200 evil,H7451 and canH3201 not lookH5027 onH413 iniquity:H5999 whyH4100 lookH5027 you on them that deal treacherously,H898 and holdH2790 your tongueH2790 when the wickedH7563 devoursH1104 the man that is more righteousH6662 than he?
And makeH6213 menH120 as the fishesH1709 of the sea,H3220 as the creepingH7431 things, that have noH3808 rulerH4910 over them?
They takeH5927 up allH3605 of them with the angle,H2443 they catchH1641 them in their net,H2764 and gatherH622 them in their drag:H4365 thereforeH5921 H3651 they rejoiceH8055 and are glad.H1523
ThereforeH5921 H3651 they sacrificeH2076 to their net,H2764 and burnH6999 incenseH6999 to their drag;H4365 becauseH3588 by them their portionH2506 is fat,H8082 and their meatH3978 plenteous.H1277
Shall they thereforeH3651 emptyH7324 their net,H2764 and not spareH2550 continuallyH8548 to slayH2026 the nations?H1471
