Previous      Home      NextBook 35 Habakkuk35:001:001 The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did.ees35:001:002 O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wiltnot hear! even cry           out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save!35:001:003 Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and causeme to behold           grievance? for spoiling and violence are beforeme: and there           are that raise up strife and contention.35:001:004 Therefore the law is slacked, and judgmentdoth never go           forth: for the wicked doth compass about therighteous;           therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.35:001:005 Behold ye among the heathen, and regard,and wonder           marvelously: for I will work a work in your dayswhich ye will           not believe, though it be told you.35:001:006 For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitterand hasty           nation, which shall march through the breadth ofthe land, to           possess the dwellingplaces that are not their's.35:001:007 They are terrible and dreadful: their judgmentand their           dignity shall proceed of themselves.35:001:008 Their horses also are swifter than the
leopards, and are more           fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemenllahs           spread themselves, and their horsemen shall comefrom far;           they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.35:001:009 They shall come all for violence: their facesshall sup up as           the east wind, and they shall gather the captivityas the           sand.35:001:010 And they shall scoff at the kings, and theprinces shall be a           scorn unto them: they shall deride every stronghold; for they           shall heap dust, and take it.35:001:011 Then shall his mind change, and he shallpass over, and           offend, imputing this his power unto his god.35:001:012 Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD myGod, mine Holy One?           we shall not die. O LORD, thou hast ordained themrof           judgment; and, O mighty God, thou hast e  s t  a  b l i schoerrde tchtieonm. for35:001:013 Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil,and canst not look           on iniquity: wherefore lookest thou upon them thatlaed           treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when thewicked           devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?35:001:014 And makest men as the fishes of the sea, asthe creeping           things, that have no ruler over them?
35:001:015 They take up all of them with the angle, theycatch them in           their net, and gather them in their drag: thereforeyeht           rejoice and are glad.35:001:016 Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, andburn incense unto           their drag; because by them their portion is fat, andrieht           meat plenteous.35:001:017 Shall they therefore empty their net, and noteraps           continually to slay the nations?35:002:001 I will stand upon my watch, and set me uponthe tower, and           will watch to see what he will say unto me, andwhat I shall           answer when I am reproved.35:002:002 And the LORD answered me, and said, Writethe vision, and make           it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.35:002:003 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, butat the end it                      bshecalal usspee iat k,w iall nsdu rneolty l iceo: tmheo, uitg hw iiltl  tnaortr yt,a for it;35:002:004 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is notupright in him: but           the just shall live by his faith.35:002:005 Yea also, because he transgresseth by wine,he is a proud man,           neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desireas hell, and           is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gatherethunto him           all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:
35:002:006 Shall not all these take up a parable againsthim, and a           taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to himtaht           increaseth that which is not his! how long? and tohim that           ladeth himself with thick clay!35:002:007 Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bitethee, and           awake that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be forbooties unto           them?35:002:008 Because thou hast spoiled many nations, allthe remnant of the           people shall spoil thee; because of men's blood,and for the           violence of the land, of the city, and of all thatllewd           therein.35:002:009 Woe to him that coveteth an evilcovetousness to his house,           that he may set his nest on high, that he may bedelivered           from the power of evil!35:002:010 Thou hast consulted shame to thy house bycutting off many           people, and hast sinned against thy soul.35:002:011 For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and thebeam out of           the timber shall answer it.35:002:012 Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood,and stablisheth a           city by iniquity!35:002:013 Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts that thepeople shall           labour in the very fire, and the people shall weary
themselves           for very vanity?35:002:014 For the earth shall be filled with theknowledge of the glory           of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.35:002:015 Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink,that puttest thy           bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, thatthou mayest           look on their nakedness!35:002:016 Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink thoualso, and let           thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD'sright hand           shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewingshall be on           thy glory.35:002:017 For the violence of Lebanon shall cover thee,and the spoil of           beasts, which made them afraid, because of men'sblood, and           for the violence of the land, of the city, and of alltaht           dwell therein.35:002:018 What profiteth the graven image that themaker thereof hath           graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies,that the           maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumbidols?35:002:019 Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake;to the dumb stone,           Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it is laid over with golddna           silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it.35:002:020 But the LORD is in his holy temple: let all the
earth keep           silence before him.35:003:001 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet uponShigionoth.35:003:002 O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and wasafraid: O LORD,           revive thy work in the midst of the years, in themidst of the           years make known; in wrath remember mercy.35:003:003 God came from Teman, and the Holy Onefrom mount Paran. Selah.           His glory covered the heavens, and the earth wasfull of his           praise.35:003:004 And his brightness was as the light; he hadhorns coming out           of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power.35:003:005 Before him went the pestilence, and burningcoals went forth           at his feet.35:003:006 He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld,and drove asunder           the nations; and the everlasting mountains werescattered, the           perpetual hills did bow: his ways are everlasting.35:003:007 I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction: and thecurtains of           the land of Midian did tremble.35:003:008 Was the LORD displeased against the rivers?was thine anger           against the rivers? was thy wrath against the sea,that thou           didst ride upon thine horses and thy chariots ofsalvation?
35:003:009 Thy bow was made quite naked, according tothe oaths of the           tribes, even thy word. Selah. Thou didst cleave theearth with           rivers.35:003:010 The mountains saw thee, and they trembled:the overflowing of           the water passed by: the deep uttered his voice,and lifted up           his hands on high.35:003:011 The sun and moon stood still in theirhabitation: at the light           of thine arrows they went, and at the shining of thy           glittering spear.35:003:012 Thou didst march through the land inindignation, thou didst           thresh the heathen in anger.35:003:013 Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thypeople, even for           salvation with thine anointed; thou woundedst thehead out of           the house of the wicked, by discovering thefoundation unto           the neck. Selah.35:003:014 Thou didst strike through with his staves thehead of his           villages: they came out as a whirlwind to scatterme: their           rejoicing was as to devour the poor secretly.35:003:015 Thou didst walk through the sea with thinehorses, through the           heap of great waters.35:003:016 When I heard, my belly trembled; my lipsquivered at the           voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and Itrembled in
           myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: wheneh           cometh up unto the people, he will invade themwith his           troops.35:003:017 Although the fig tree shall not blossom,neither shall fruit           be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail,and the           fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut offmorf           the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:35:003:018 Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in theGod of my           salvation.35:003:019 The LORD God is my strength, and he willmake my feet like           hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon minehgih           places.
