1 H4853 The burden H2265 which Habakkuk H5030 the prophet H2372 [H8804] envisioned.
  2 H3068 O LORD, H7768 [H8765] how long shall I halloo, H8085 [H8799] and thou wilt not hear! H2199 [H8799] even cry out H2555 to thee of violence, H3467 [H8686] and thou wilt not liberate!
  3 H7200 [H8686] Why dost thou show H205 me nothingness, H5027 [H8686] and cause me to behold H5999 toil? H7701 for plundering H2555 and violence H5375 [H8799] are before me: and there are that raise H7379 strife H4066 and contention.
  4 H8451 Therefore the law H6313 [H8799] is feeble, H4941 and judgment H5331 doth never H3318 [H8799] go forth: H7563 for the wicked H3803 [H8688] doth surround H6662 the righteous; H4941 therefore judgment H3318 [H8799] goeth forth H6127 [H8794] perverted
  5 H7200 [H8798] Behold H1471 ye among the nations, H5027 [H8685] and regard, H8539 [H8690] and wonder H8539 [H8798] marvellously: H6466 [H8802] for I will work H6467 a work H3117 in your days, H539 [H8686] which ye will not believe, H5608 [H8792] though it be told you.
  6 H6965 [H8688] For, lo, I raise up H3778 the Chaldeans, H4751 that bitter H4116 [H8737] and hasty H1471 nation, H1980 [H8802] which shall march H4800 through the breadth H776 of the land, H3423 [H8800] to possess H4908 the dwellingplaces that are not theirs.
  7 H366 They are terrible H3372 [H8737] and dreadful: H4941 their judgment H7613 and their dignity H3318 [H8799] shall proceed from themselves.
  8 H5483 Their horses H7043 [H8804] also are swifter H5246 than the leopards, H2300 [H8804] and are more sharp H6153 than the evening H2061 wolves: H6571 and their horsemen H6335 [H8804] shall spread H6571 themselves, and their horsemen H935 [H8799] shall come H7350 from far; H5774 [H8799] they shall fly H5404 as the eagle H2363 [H8804] that hasteth H398 [H8800] to eat.
  9 H935 [H8799] They shall come H2555 all for violence: H6440 their faces H4041 shall sup up H6921 as the east wind, H622 [H8799] and they shall gather H7628 the captives H2344 as the sand.
  10 H7046 [H8691] And they shall scoff H4428 at the kings, H7336 [H8802] and the princes H4890 shall be a laughingstock H7832 [H8799] to them: they shall laugh at H3605 every H4013 strong hold; H6651 [H8799] for they shall heap H6083 dust, H3920 [H8799] and take it.
  11 H7307 Then shall his spirit H2498 [H8804] change, H5674 [H8799] and he shall pass over, H816 [H8804] and be guilty, H2098 imputing this H3581 his power H433 to his god.
  12 H6924 Art thou not from everlasting, H3068 O LORD H430 my God, H6918 my Holy One? H4191 [H8799] we shall not die. H3068 O LORD, H7760 [H8804] thou hast ordained H4941 them for judgment; H6697 and, O Rock, H3245 [H8804] thou hast established H3198 [H8687] them for correction.
  13 H2889 Thou art of purer H5869 eyes H7200 [H8800] than to behold H7451 evil, H3201 [H8799] and canst H5027 [H8687] not look H5999 on toil: H5027 [H8686] why lookest H898 [H8802] thou on them that deal treacherously, H2790 [H8686] and keepest silence H7563 when the wicked H1104 [H8763] swalloweth up H6662 the man that is more righteous than he?
  14 H6213 [H8799] And makest H120 men H1709 as the fishes H3220 of the sea, H7431 as the creeping things, H4910 [H8802] that have no ruler over them?
  15 H5927 [H8689] They take up H2443 all of them with the hook, H1641 [H8799] they catch H2764 them in their net, H622 [H8799] and gather H4365 them in their drag: H8055 [H8799] therefore they rejoice H1523 [H8799] and are glad.
  16 H2076 [H8762] Therefore they sacrifice H2764 to their net, H6999 [H8762] and burn incense H4365 to their drag; H1992 because by them H2506 their portion H8082 is fat, H3978 and their food H1277 plenteous.
  17 H7324 [H8686] Shall they therefore empty H2764 their net, H2550 [H8799] and not spare H8548 continually H2026 [H8800] to slay H1471 the nations?
