Chaldeans Used to Punish Judah

1 The a1oracle which Habakkuk the prophet saw. 2 2How long, O LORD, will I call for help, And You will not hear? I cry out to You, "Violence!" Yet You do 3not save. 3 Why do You make me 4see iniquity, And cause me to look on wickedness? Yes, 5destruction and violence are before me; 6Strife exists and contention arises. 4 Therefore the 7law is bignored And justice cis never upheld. For the wicked 8surround the righteous; Therefore justice comes out 9perverted. 5 "10Look among the nations! Observe! Be astonished! 11Wonder! Because I am doing 12something in your days - You would not believe if dyou were told. 6 "For behold, I am 13raising up the Chaldeans, That efierce and impetuous people Who march fthroughout the earth To g14seize dwelling places which are not theirs.
