Habakkuk 1:5-10

ACV(i) 5 Behold ye {scoffers (LXX/NT)}, and look, and wonder marvelously. For I am working a work in your days, which ye will not believe though it be told you. 6 For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, who march through the breadth of the earth to possess dwelling-places that are not theirs. 7 They are fearful and dreadful. Their judgment and their dignity proceed from themselves. 8 Their horses also are swifter than leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves. And their horsemen press proudly on. Yea, their horsemen come from far. They fly as an eagle that hastens to devour. 9 They come all of them for violence. The set of their faces is forwards, and they gather captives as the sand. 10 Yea, he scoffs at kings, and rulers are a derision to him. He derides every stronghold, for he heaps up dust, and takes it.
