Habakkuk 1:1-6 (The Darby Translation)

View In My Bible
1 The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see. 2 Jehovah, how long shall I cry and thou wilt not hear? I cry out unto thee, Violence! and thou dost not save. 3 Why dost thou cause me to see iniquity, and lookest thou upon grievance? For spoiling and violence are before me; and there is strife, and contention riseth up. 4 Therefore the law is powerless, and justice a doth never go forth; for the wicked encompasseth the righteous; therefore judgment goeth forth perverted. 5 See ye among the nations, and behold, and wonder marvellously; for [I] work a work b in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be declared [to you]. 6 For behold, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and impetuous nation, which marcheth through the breadth of the earth, to possess dwelling-places that are not theirs.
