Habakkuk 1

Hello God, can you please answer ?


Habakkuk 1 – “1The oracle that Habakkuk the prophet received.

Habakkuk’s Complaint

2How long, O LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?

3Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and conflict abounds.


4Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails. The wicked hem in the righteous, so that justice is perverted.

The LORD’s Answer

5“Look at the nations and watch — and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.

6I am raising up the Babylonians, that ruthless and impetuous people, who sweep across the


whole earth to seize dwelling places not their own.

7They are a feared and dreaded people; they are a law to themselves and promote their own honor.

8Their horses are swifter than leopards, fiercer than wolves at dusk. Their cavalry gallops headlong; their horsemen come from afar. They fly like a vulture swooping to devour;

9they all come bent on violence. Their hordes


advance like a desert wind and gather prisoners like sand.

10They deride kings and scoff at rulers. They laugh at all fortified cities; they build earthen ramps and capture them.

11Then they sweep past like the wind and go on — guilty men, whose own strength is their god.”

Habakkuk’s Second Complaint

12O LORD, are you not from everlasting? My


God, my Holy One, we will not die. O LORD, you have appointed them to execute judgment; O Rock, you have ordained them to punish.

13Your eyes are too pure to look on evil; you cannot tolerate wrong. Why then do you tolerate the treacherous? Why are you silent while the wicked swallow up those more righteous than themselves?

14You have made men like fish in the sea, like sea creatures that have no ruler.

15The wicked foe pulls all of them up with


hooks, he catches them in his net, he gathers them up in his dragnet; and so he rejoices and is glad.

16Therefore he sacrifices to his net and burns incense to his dragnet, for by his net he lives in luxury and enjoys the choicest food.

17Is he to keep on emptying his net, destroying nations without mercy?”
