035:Book 35


035: Habakkuk Book 35


035:Habakkuk 001:001
The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see.


035:001:002
O LORD,
how long shall I cry,
and thou wilt not hear!
even cry out unto thee of violence,
and thou wilt not save!


035:001:003
Why dost thou shew me iniquity,
and cause me to behold grievance?
for spoiling and violence are before me:
and there are that raise up strife and contention.


035:001:004
Therefore the law is slacked,
and judgment doth never go forth:
for the wicked doth compass about the righteous;
therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.


035:001:005
Behold ye among the heathen,
and regard,
and wonder marvelously:
for I will work a work in your days which ye will not believe,
though it be told you.


035:001:006
For,
lo,
I raise up the Chaldeans,
that bitter and hasty nation,
which shall march through the breadth of the land,
to possess the dwellingplaces that are not their's.


035:001:007
They are terrible and dreadful:
their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.


035:001:008
Their horses also are swifter than the leopards,
and are more fierce than the evening wolves:
and their horsemen shall spread themselves,
and their horsemen shall come from far;
they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.


035:001:009
They shall come all for violence:
their faces shall sup up as the east wind,
and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.


035:001:010
And they shall scoff at the kings,
and the princes shall be a scorn unto them:
they shall deride every strong hold;
for they shall heap dust,
and take it.


035:001:011
Then shall his mind change,
and he shall pass over,
and offend,
imputing this his power unto his god.


035:001:012
Art thou not from everlasting,
O LORD my God,
mine Holy One?
we shall not die.
O LORD,
thou hast ordained them for judgment;
and,
O mighty God,
thou hast established them for correction.


035:001:013
Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil,
and canst not look on iniquity:
wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously,
and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?


035:001:014
And makest men as the fishes of the sea,
as the creeping things,
that have no ruler over them?


035:001:015
They take up all of them with the angle,
they catch them in their net,
and gather them in their drag:
therefore they rejoice and are glad.


035:001:016
Therefore they sacrifice unto their net,
and burn incense unto their drag;
because by them their portion is fat,
and their meat plenteous.


035:001:017
Shall they therefore empty their net,
and not spare continually to slay the nations?
