Habakkuk 1:1
The burden which Habakkuk the prophet saw.

Habakkuk 1:2
O Lord, how long will I cry, and You will not hear! [Even] cry out to You [of] violence, and You will not save!

Habakkuk 1:3
Why do You show me iniquity, and cause [me] to behold grievance? For spoiling and violence [are] before me, and there are [those who] raise up strife and contention.

Habakkuk 1:4
Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment never goes forth, for the wicked encompass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceeds.

Habakkuk 1:5
Behold among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvelously, for [I] will work a work in your days, [which] you will not believe, though it is told [to you]. *Acts 13:40 - 41

Habakkuk 1:6
For, look, I raise up the Chaldeans, [that] bitter and hasty nation, which will march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places [that are] not theirs.

Habakkuk 1:7
They [are] terrible and dreadful, their judgment and their dignity will proceed of themselves.

Habakkuk 1:8
Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves, and their horsemen will spread themselves, and their horsemen will come from afar; they will fly as the eagle [that] hastens to eat.

Habakkuk 1:9
They will come, all for violence, their faces will sup up [as] the east wind, and they will gather the captivity as the sand.

Habakkuk 1:10
And they will scoff at the kings, and the princes will be a scorn to them, they will deride every stronghold; for they will heap dust, and take it.

Habakkuk 1:11
Then [his] mind will change, and he will pass over, and offend, [imputing] his power to his god.

Habakkuk 1:12
[Are] You not from everlasting, O Lord my God, my Holy One? We will not die. O Lord, You have ordained them for judgment; and, O Mighty God, You have established them for correction.

Habakkuk 1:13
[You are] of purer eyes than to behold evil, and cannot look on iniquity, why do You look upon those who deal treacherously, [and] hold Your tongue when the wicked devours [the man who is] more righteous than him?

Habakkuk 1:14
And make men as the fish of the sea, as the creeping things, [who have] no ruler over them?

Habakkuk 1:15
They take up all of them with the fishhook, they catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag, therefore they rejoice and are glad.

Habakkuk 1:16
Therefore they sacrifice to their net, and burn incense to their drag; because by them, their portion [is] fat, and their meat plenteous.

Habakkuk 1:17
Should they therefore empty their net, and not continually spare to slay the nations?

Habakkuk 2:1
I will stand upon my watch, and set myself upon the tower, and will watch to see what He will say to me, and what I will answer when I am reproved.

Habakkuk 2:2
And the Lord answered me, and said, "Write the vision, and make [it] plain upon tables, that he who reads it may run.

Habakkuk 2:3
For the vision [is] still for an appointed time, but at the end it will speak, and not lie, though it hesitates, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not delay."

Habakkuk 2:4
Behold, his soul [which] is lifted up is not upright in him, but the just will live by his faith. *Romans 1:17, *Galatians 3:11

Habakkuk 2:5
Indeed also, because he transgresses by wine, [he is] a proud man, neither stays at home, who enlarges his desire as Hell, and [is] as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathers all nations to him, and heaps all people to him.

Habakkuk 2:6
Should all these not take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, "Woe to him who increases [that which is] not his! How long? And to him who lades himself with thick clay!"

Habakkuk 2:7
Should they who will bite you not rise up suddenly, and awake who will vex you, and you will be for booties to them?

Habakkuk 2:8
Because you have spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people will spoil you; because of men's blood, and [for] the violence of the land, of the city, and of all who dwell therein.

Habakkuk 2:9
Woe to him who covets an evil covetousness to his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the power of evil!

Habakkuk 2:10
You have consulted shame to your house by cutting off many people, and have sinned [against] your soul.

Habakkuk 2:11
For the stone will cry out of the wall, and the beam will answer it out of the timber.

Habakkuk 2:12
Woe to him who builds a town with blood, and establishes a city by iniquity!

Habakkuk 2:13
Behold, [is it] not of the Lord of hosts that the people will labor in the very fire, and the people will weary themselves for very vanity?

Habakkuk 2:14
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.

Habakkuk 2:15
Woe to him who gives his neighbor drink, who puts your bottle to [him], and make [him] drunk also, that you may look on their nakedness!

Habakkuk 2:16
You are filled with shame for glory, drink also, and let your foreskin be uncovered, the cup of the Lord's right hand will be turned to you, and shameful spewing [will be] on your glory.

Habakkuk 2:17
For the violence of Lebanon will cover you, and the spoil of beasts, [which] made them afraid, because of men's blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all who dwell therein.

Habakkuk 2:18
What does the graven image profit, that the maker thereof has engraved it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusts therein, to make dumb idols?

Habakkuk 2:19
Woe to him who says to the wood, "Awake;" to the dumb stone, "Arise, it will teach!" Behold, it [is] laid over with gold and silver, and [there is] no breath at all in the midst of it. *7:194

Habakkuk 2:20
But the Lord [is] in His holy temple, let all the earth keep silence before Him.

Habakkuk 3:1
A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shigionoth.

Habakkuk 3:2
O Lord, I have heard Your speech, [and] was afraid, O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years, make known; in wrath, remember mercy.

Habakkuk 3:3
God came from Teman, and the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise.

Habakkuk 3:4
And [His] brightness was as the light; He had horns [coming] out of His hand, and there [was] the hiding of His power.

Habakkuk 3:5
The pestilence went before Him, and burning coals went forth at His feet.

Habakkuk 3:6
He stood, and measured the earth, He beheld, and drove the nations asunder; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills bowed, His ways [are] everlasting.

Habakkuk 3:7
I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction, [and] the curtains of the land of Midian trembled.

Habakkuk 3:8
Was the Lord displeased against the rivers? [Was] Your anger against the rivers? [Was] Your wrath against the sea, that You rode upon Your horses [and] Your chariots of salvation?

Habakkuk 3:9
Your bow was made quite naked, [according] to the oaths of the tribes, [even Your] word. Selah. You cleaved the earth with rivers.

Habakkuk 3:10
The mountains saw You, [and] they trembled, the overflowing of the water passed by, the deep uttered his voice, [and] lifted up his hands on high.

Habakkuk 3:11
The sun [and] moon stood still in their habitation, they went at the light of Your arrows, [and] at the shining of Your glittering spear.

Habakkuk 3:12
You marched through the land in indignation, You threshed the heathen in anger.

Habakkuk 3:13
You went forth for the salvation of Your people, [even] for salvation with Your anointed; You wounded the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation to the neck. Selah.

Habakkuk 3:14
You struck through the head of his villages with his staves, they came out as a whirlwind to scatter me, their rejoicing [was] as to secretly devour the poor.

Habakkuk 3:15
You walked through the sea with Your horses, [through] the heap of great waters.

Habakkuk 3:16
When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice, rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble, when He comes up to the people, He will invade them with His troops.

Habakkuk 3:17
Although the fig tree will not blossom, neither [will] fruit [be] in the vines; the labor of the olive will fail, and the fields will yield no meat; the flock will be cut off from the fold, and [there will be] no herd in the stalls.

Habakkuk 3:18
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.

Habakkuk 3:19
The Lord God [is] my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds' [feet], and He will make me to walk upon my high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.
