Habakkuk 3:7-19 7 I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction;     the curtains of the land of Midian did tremble. 8 Was your wrath against the rivers, O Lord?     Was your anger against the rivers,     or your indignation against the sea, when you rode on your horses,     on your chariot of salvation? 9 You stripped the sheath from your bow,     calling for many arrows.[b] Selah     You split the earth with rivers. 10 The mountains saw you and writhed;     the raging waters swept on; the deep gave forth its voice;     it lifted its hands on high. 11 The sun and moon stood still in their place     at the light of yourRead More →

 Habakkuk 3:1-6 Habakkuk’s Prayer 3 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet. On shigionoth.[a] 2 Lord, I have heard of your fame;     I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day,     in our time make them known;     in wrath remember mercy. 3 God came from Teman,     the Holy One from Mount Paran.[b] His glory covered the heavens     and his praise filled the earth. 4 His splendor was like the sunrise;     rays flashed from his hand,     where his power was hidden. 5 Plague went before him;     pestilence followed his steps. 6 He stood, and shook the earth;     he looked, and made the nations tremble. The ancient mountains crumbled     andRead More →

Habakkuk 2:12-20 12 “Woe to him who builds a town with blood     and founds a city on iniquity! 13 Behold, is it not from the Lord of hosts     that peoples labor merely for fire,     and nations weary themselves for nothing? 14 For the earth will be filled     with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord     as the waters cover the sea. 15 “Woe to him who makes his neighbors drink—     you pour out your wrath and make them drunk,     in order to gaze at their nakedness! 16 You will have your fill of shame instead of glory.     Drink, yourself, and show your uncircumcision! The cup in the Lord‘s rightRead More →

Habakkuk 2:4-12 4 “Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him,     but the righteous shall live by his faith.[a] 5 “Moreover, wine[b] is a traitor,     an arrogant man who is never at rest.[c] His greed is as wide as Sheol;     like death he has never enough. He gathers for himself all nations     and collects as his own all peoples.” Woe to the Chaldeans 6 Shall not all these take up their taunt against him, with scoffing and riddles for him, and say, “Woe to him who heaps up what is not his own—     for how long?—     and loads himself with pledges!” 7 Will not yourRead More →

Habakkuk 1:12-2:3 Habakkuk’s Second Complaint 12 Are you not from everlasting, O Lord my God, my Holy One? We shall not die. O Lord, you have ordained them as a judgment, and you, O Rock, have established them for reproof. 13 You who are of purer eyes than to see evil and cannot look at wrong, why do you idly look at traitors and remain silent when the wicked swallows up the man more righteous than he? 14 You make mankind like the fish of the sea, like crawling things that have no ruler. 15 He[a] brings all of them up with a hook; heRead More →

Habakkuk 1:5-12 The Lord‘s Answer 5 “Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe if told. 6 For behold, I am raising up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, who march through the breadth of the earth, to seize dwellings not their own. 7 They are dreaded and fearsome; their justice and dignity go forth from themselves. 8 Their horses are swifter than leopards, more fierce than the evening wolves; their horsemen press proudly on. Their horsemen come from afar; they fly like an eagle swift to devour.Read More →

Habakkuk 1:2-9 Habakkuk’s Complaint O Lord, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not hear? Or cry to you “Violence!” and you will not save? 3 Why do you make me see iniquity, and why do you idly look at wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; strife and contention arise. 4 So the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; so justice goes forth perverted. The Lord‘s Answer 5 “Look among the nations, and see; wonder and be astounded. For I am doing a work in your days that you would not believe ifRead More →
