1 H4853 The oracle H2265 which Habakkuk H5030 the prophet H2372 saw.
  2 H3068 Yahweh, H7768 how long will I cry, H8085 and you will not hear? H2199 I cry out H2555 to you "Violence!" H3467 and will you not save?
  3 H7200 Why do you show H205 me iniquity, H5027 and look H5999 at perversity? H7701 For destruction H2555 and violence H7379 are before me. There is strife, H4066 and contention H5375 rises up.
  4 H8451 Therefore the law H6313 is paralyzed, H4941 and justice H5331 never H3318 goes forth; H7563 for the wicked H3803 surround H6662 the righteous; H4941 therefore justice H3318 goes forth H6127 perverted.
  5 H7200 "Look H1471 among the nations, H5027 watch, H8539 and wonder H8539 marvelously; H6466 for I am working H6466 a work H3117 in your days, H539 which you will not believe H5608 though it is told you.
  6 H6965 For, behold, I raise up H3778 the Chaldeans, H4751 that bitter H4116 and hasty H1471 nation, H1980 that march H4800 through the breadth H776 of the earth, H3423 to possess H4908 dwelling places that are not theirs.
  7 H366 They are feared H3372 and dreaded. H4941 Their judgment H7613 and their dignity H3318 proceed from themselves.
  8 H5483 Their horses H7043 also are swifter H5246 than leopards, H2300 and are more fierce H6153 than the evening H2061 wolves. H6571 Their horsemen H6335 press proudly H6571 on. Yes, their horsemen H935 come H7350 from afar. H5774 They fly H5404 as an eagle H2363 that hurries H398 to devour.
  9 H935 All of them come H2555 for violence. H4041 Their hordes H6440 face H6921 the desert. H622 He gathers H7628 prisoners H2344 like sand.
  10 H7046 Yes, he scoffs H4428 at kings, H7336 and princes H4890 are a derision H7832 to him. He laughs H4013 at every stronghold, H6651 for he builds H6083 up an earthen H3920 ramp, and takes it.
  11 H2498 Then he sweeps H7307 by like the wind, H5674 and goes on. H816 He is indeed guilty, H2098 whose H3581 strength H433 is his god."
  12 H6924 Aren't you from everlasting, H3068 Yahweh H430 my God, H6918 my Holy One? H4191 We will not die. H3068 Yahweh, H7760 you have appointed H4941 him for judgment. H6697 You, Rock, H3245 have established H3198 him to punish.
  13 H2889 You who have purer H5869 eyes H7200 than to see H7451 evil, H3201 and who cannot H5027 look H5999 on perversity, H5027 why do you tolerate H898 those who deal treacherously, H2790 and keep silent H7563 when the wicked H1104 swallows H6662 up the man who is more righteous than he,
  14 H6213 and make H120 men H1709 like the fish H3220 of the sea, H7431 like the creeping things, H4910 that have no ruler over them?
  15 H5927 He takes up H2443 all of them with the hook. H1641 He catches H2764 them in his net, H622 and gathers H4365 them in his dragnet. H8055 Therefore he rejoices H1523 and is glad.
  16 H2076 Therefore he sacrifices H2764 to his net, H6999 and burns incense H4365 to his dragnet, H1992 because by them H2506 his life H8082 is luxurious, H2506 and his food H1277 is good.
  17 H8548 Will he therefore continually H7324 empty H2764 his net, H2026 and kill H1471 the nations H2550 without mercy?
