HABAKKUK PAGE 876

Hab:1:1: The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see.
Hab:1:2: O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear!  even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save!
Hab:1:3: 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.
Hab:1:4: Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.
Hab:1:5: Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
Hab:1:6: 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 theirs.
Hab:1:7: They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.
Hab:1:8: 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.
Hab:1:9: They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.
Hab:1:10: 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.
Hab:1:11: Then shall his mind change, and he shall pass over, and offend, imputing this his power unto his god.
Hab:1:12: 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.
Hab:1:13: 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?
Hab:1:14: And makest men as the fishes of the sea, as the creeping things, that have no ruler over them?
Hab:1:15: 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.
Hab:1:16: Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous.
Hab:1:17: Shall they therefore empty their net, and not spare continually to slay the nations?

Chapter 2

Hab:2:1: I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.
Hab:2:2: And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
Hab:2:3: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
