Habakkuk chapter 1

1
This is the message that the LORD revealed to the prophet Habakkuk.
2
O LORD, how long must I call for help before you listen, before you save us from violence?
3
Why do you make me see such trouble? How can you stand to look on such wrongdoing? Destruction and violence are all around me, and there is fighting and quarreling everywhere.
4
The law is weak and useless, and justice is never done. Evil people get the better of the righteous, and so justice is perverted.
5
Then the LORD said to his people, "Keep watching the nations around you, and you will be astonished at what you see. I am going to do something that you will not believe when you hear about it.
6
I am bringing the Babylonians to power, those fierce, restless people. They are marching out across the world to conquer other lands.
7
They spread fear and terror, and in their pride they are a law to themselves.
8
"Their horses are faster than leopards, fiercer than hungry wolves. Their cavalry troops come riding from distant lands; their horses paw the ground. They come swooping down like eagles attacking their prey.
9
"Their armies advance in violent conquest, and everyone is terrified as they approach. Their captives are as numerous as grains of sand.
10
They treat kings with contempt and laugh at high officials. No fortress can stop them---they pile up earth against it and capture it.
11
Then they sweep on like the wind and are gone, these men whose power is their god."
12
LORD, from the very beginning you are God. You are my God, holy and eternal. LORD, my God and protector, you have chosen the Babylonians and made them strong so that they can punish us.
13
But how can you stand these treacherous, evil men? Your eyes are too holy to look at evil, and you cannot stand the sight of people doing wrong. So why are you silent while they destroy people who are more righteous than they are?
14
How can you treat people like fish or like a swarm of insects that have no ruler to direct them?
15
The Babylonians catch people with hooks, as though they were fish. They drag them off in nets and shout for joy over their catch!
16
They even worship their nets and offer sacrifices to them, because their nets provide them with the best of everything.
17
Are they going to use their swords forever and keep on destroying nations without mercy?

Habakkuk chapter 2

1
I will climb my watchtower and wait to see what the LORD will tell me to say and what answer he will give to my complaint.
2
The LORD gave me this answer: "Write down clearly on tablets what I reveal to you, so that it can be read at a glance.
3
Put it in writing, because it is not yet time for it to come true. But the time is coming quickly, and what I show you will come true. It may seem slow in coming, but wait for it; it will certainly take place, and it will not be delayed.
4
And this is the message: 'Those who are evil will not survive, but those who are righteous will live because they are faithful to God.' "
5
Wealth is deceitful. Greedy people are proud and restless---like death itself they are never satisfied. That is why they conquer nation after nation for themselves.
6
The conquered people will taunt their conquerors and show their scorn for them. They will say, "You take what isn't yours, but you are doomed! How long will you go on getting rich by forcing your debtors to pay up?"
7
But before you know it, you that have conquered others will be in debt yourselves and be forced to pay interest. Enemies will come and make you tremble. They will plunder you!
8
You have plundered the people of many nations, but now those who have survived will plunder you because of the murders you have committed and because of your violence against the people of the world and its cities.
9
You are doomed! You have made your family rich with what you took by violence, and have tried to make your own home safe from harm and danger!
10
But your schemes have brought shame on your family; by destroying many nations you have only brought ruin on yourself.
11
Even the stones of the walls cry out against you, and the rafters echo the cry.
12
You are doomed! You founded a city on crime and built it up by murder.
13
The nations you conquered wore themselves out in useless labor, and all they have built goes up in flames. The LORD Almighty has done this.
14
But the earth will be as full of the knowledge of the LORD's glory as the seas are full of water.
15
You are doomed! In your fury you humiliated and disgraced your neighbors; you made them stagger as though they were drunk.
16
You in turn will be covered with shame instead of honor. You yourself will drink and stagger. The LORD will make you drink your own cup of punishment, and your honor will be turned to disgrace.
17
You have cut down the forests of Lebanon; now you will be cut down. You killed its animals; now animals will terrify you. This will happen because of the murders you have committed and because of your violence against the people of the world and its cities.
18
What's the use of an idol? It is only something that a human being has made, and it tells you nothing but lies. What good does it do for its maker to trust it---a god that can't even talk!
19
You are doomed! You say to a piece of wood, "Wake up!" or to a block of stone, "Get up!" Can an idol reveal anything to you? It may be covered with silver and gold, but there is no life in it.
20
The LORD is in his holy Temple; let everyone on earth be silent in his presence.

Habakkuk chapter 3

1
This is a prayer of the prophet Habakkuk:
2
O LORD, I have heard of what you have done, and I am filled with awe. Now do again in our times the great deeds you used to do. Be merciful, even when you are angry.
3
God is coming again from Edom; the holy God is coming from the hills of Paran. His splendor covers the heavens, and the earth is full of his praise.
4
He comes with the brightness of lightning; light flashes from his hand, there where his power is hidden.
5
He sends disease before him and commands death to follow him.
6
When he stops, the earth shakes; at his glance the nations tremble. The eternal mountains are shattered; the everlasting hills sink down, the hills where he walked in ancient times.
7
I saw the people of Cushan afraid and the people of Midian tremble.
8
Was it the rivers that made you angry, LORD? Was it the sea that made you furious? You rode upon the clouds; the storm cloud was your chariot, as you brought victory to your people.
9
You got ready to use your bow, ready to shoot your arrows. Your lightning split open the earth.
10
When the mountains saw you, they trembled; water poured down from the skies. The waters under the earth roared, and their waves rose high.
11
At the flash of your speeding arrows and the gleam of your shining spear, the sun and the moon stood still.
12
You marched across the earth in anger; in fury you trampled the nations.
13
You went out to save your people, to save your chosen king. You struck down the leader of the wicked and completely destroyed his followers.
14
Your arrows pierced the commander of his army when it came like a storm to scatter us, gloating like those who secretly oppress the poor.
15
You trampled the sea with your horses, and the mighty waters foamed.
16
I hear all this, and I tremble; my lips quiver with fear. My body goes limp, and my feet stumble beneath me. I will quietly wait for the time to come when God will punish those who attack us.
17
Even though the fig trees have no fruit and no grapes grow on the vines, even though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no grain, even though the sheep all die and the cattle stalls are empty,
18
I will still be joyful and glad, because the LORD God is my savior.
19
The Sovereign LORD gives me strength. He makes me sure-footed as a deer and keeps me safe on the mountains.
