Habakkuk's Complaint

2 O LORD, 1how long shall I cry for help, and you will not hear? Or cry to you 2"Violence!" and you will not save?
3 3Why do you make me see iniquity, and why do you idly look at wrong? Destruction 4and violence are before me; strife and contention arise.
4 5So the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth. 6For the wicked surround the righteous; so justice goes forth perverted.
