Habakkuk 1:1 - Habakkuk 1:4

The Oracle to Habakkuk: Habakkuk's Complaints, Chaldeans Used to Punish Judah

The revelation which Habakkuk the prophet saw.
The LORD , how long will I cry, and you will not hear? I cry out to you "Violence!" and will you not save?
Why do you show me iniquity, and look at perversity? For destruction and violence are before me. There is strife, and contention rises up.
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails; for the wicked surround the righteous; therefore justice comes out perverted.
