And the LORD answered me:1"Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.
For still 2the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end--it will not lie. If it seems slow, 3wait for it; 4it will surely come; it will not delay.
"Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him, but 5the righteous shall live by his faith.a
"Moreover, wineb is 6a traitor, an arrogant man who is never at rest.c His greed is as wide as Sheol; like death 7he has never enough. 8He gathers for himself all nations and collects as his own all peoples."
