1 The burden [04853] which Habakkuk [02265] the prophet [05030] did see [02372] (8804).
2 O LORD [03068], how long shall I cry [07768] (8765), and thou wilt not hear [08085] (8799)! [even] cry out [02199] (8799) unto thee [of] violence [02555], and thou wilt not save [03467] (8686)!
3 Why dost thou shew [07200] (8686) me iniquity [0205], and cause [me] to behold [05027] (8686) grievance [05999]? for spoiling [07701] and violence [02555] [are] before me: and there are [that] raise up [05375] (8799) strife [07379] and contention [04066].
4 Therefore the law [08451] is slacked [06313] (8799), and judgment [04941] doth never [05331] go forth [03318] (8799): for the wicked [07563] doth compass [03803] (8688) about the righteous [06662]; therefore wrong [06127] (8794) judgment [04941] proceedeth [03318] (8799).
5 Behold [07200] (8798) ye among the heathen [01471], and regard [05027] (8685), and wonder [08539] (8690) marvellously [08539] (8798): for [I] will work [06466] (8802) a work [06467] in your days [03117], [which] ye will not believe [0539] (8686), though it be told [05608] (8792) [you].
6 For, lo, I raise up [06965] (8688) the Chaldeans [03778], [that] bitter [04751] and hasty [04116] (8737) nation [01471], which shall march [01980] (8802) through the breadth [04800] of the land [0776], to possess [03423] (8800) the dwellingplaces [04908] [that are] not theirs.
7 They [are] terrible [0366] and dreadful [03372] (8737): their judgment [04941] and their dignity [07613] shall proceed [03318] (8799) of themselves.
8 Their horses [05483] also are swifter [07043] (8804) than the leopards [05246], and are more fierce [02300] (8804) than the evening [06153] wolves [02061]: and their horsemen [06571] shall spread [06335] (8804) themselves, and their horsemen [06571] shall come [0935] (8799) from far [07350]; they shall fly [05774] (8799) as the eagle [05404] [that] hasteth [02363] (8804) to eat [0398] (8800).
9 They shall come [0935] (8799) all for violence [02555]: their faces [06440] shall sup up [04041] [as] the east wind [06921], and they shall gather [0622] (8799) the captivity [07628] as the sand [02344].
10 And they shall scoff [07046] (8691) at the kings [04428], and the princes [07336] (8802) shall be a scorn [04890] unto them: they shall deride [07832] (8799) every strong hold [04013]; for they shall heap [06651] (8799) dust [06083], and take [03920] (8799) it.
11 Then shall [his] mind [07307] change [02498] (8804), and he shall pass over [05674] (8799), and offend [0816] (8804), [imputing] this [02098] his power [03581] unto his god [0433].
12 [Art] thou not from everlasting [06924], O LORD [03068] my God [0430], mine Holy One [06918]? we shall not die [04191] (8799). O LORD [03068], thou hast ordained [07760] (8804) them for judgment [04941]; and, O mighty God [06697], thou hast established [03245] (8804) them for correction [03198] (8687).
13 [Thou art] of purer [02889] eyes [05869] than to behold [07200] (8800) evil [07451], and canst [03201] (8799) not look [05027] (8687) on iniquity [05999]: wherefore lookest [05027] (8686) thou upon them that deal treacherously [0898] (8802), [and] holdest thy tongue [02790] (8686) when the wicked [07563] devoureth [01104] (8763) [the man that is] more righteous [06662] than he?
14 And makest [06213] (8799) men [0120] as the fishes [01709] of the sea [03220], as the creeping things [07431], [that have] no ruler [04910] (8802) over them?
15 They take up [05927] (8689) all of them with the angle [02443], they catch [01641] (8799) them in their net [02764], and gather [0622] (8799) them in their drag [04365]: therefore they rejoice [08055] (8799) and are glad [01523] (8799).
16 Therefore they sacrifice [02076] (8762) unto their net [02764], and burn incense [06999] (8762) unto their drag [04365]; because by them [01992] their portion [02506] [is] fat [08082], and their meat [03978] plenteous [01277].
17 Shall they therefore empty [07324] (8686) their net [02764], and not spare [02550] (8799) continually [08548] to slay [02026] (8800) the nations [01471]?
