Habakkuk 1:2-4

RSV 2 O LORD, how long shall I cry for help, and thou wilt not hear? Or cry to thee "Violence!" and thou wilt not save? NIV 2 How long, O LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, "Violence!" but you do not save? RSV 3 Why dost thou make me see wrongs and look upon trouble? Destruction and violence are before me; strife and contention arise. NIV 3 Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds. RSV 4 So the law is slacked and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous, so justice goes forth perverted. NIV 4 Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails. The wicked hem in the righteous, so that justice is perverted.
