1:1 The burden [H4853] which Habakkuk [H2265] the prophet [H5030] did see [H2372] .
1:2 O LORD [H3068] , how long shall I cry [H7768] , and thou wilt not hear [H8085] ! [even] cry out [H2199] unto thee [of] violence [H2555] , and thou wilt not save [H3467] !
1:3 Why dost thou shew [H7200] me iniquity [H205] , and cause [me] to behold [H5027] grievance [H5999] ? for spoiling [H7701] and violence [H2555] [are] before me: and there are [that] raise up [H5375] strife [H7379] and contention [H4066] .
1:4 Therefore the law [H8451] is slacked [H6313] , and judgment [H4941] doth never [H5331] go forth [H3318] : for the wicked [H7563] doth compass [H3803] about the righteous [H6662] ; therefore wrong [H6127] judgment [H4941] proceedeth [H3318] .(wrong: or, wrested)
1:5 Behold [H7200] ye among the heathen [H1471] , and regard [H5027] , and wonder [H8539] marvellously [H8539] : for [I] will work [H6466] a work [H6467] in your days [H3117] , [which] ye will not believe [H539] , though it be told [H5608] [you].
1:6 For, lo, I raise up [H6965] the Chaldeans [H3778] , [that] bitter [H4751] and hasty [H4116] nation [H1471] , which shall march [H1980] through the breadth [H4800] of the land [H776] , to possess [H3423] the dwellingplaces [H4908] [that are] not theirs.(breadth: Heb. breadths)
1:7 They [are] terrible [H366] and dreadful [H3372] : their judgment [H4941] and their dignity [H7613] shall proceed [H3318] of themselves.(their judgment: or, from them shall proceed the judgment of these, and the captivity of these)
1:8 Their horses [H5483] also are swifter [H7043] than the leopards [H5246] , and are more fierce [H2300] than the evening [H6153] wolves [H2061] : and their horsemen [H6571] shall spread [H6335] themselves, and their horsemen [H6571] shall come [H935] from far [H7350] ; they shall fly [H5774] as the eagle [H5404] [that] hasteth [H2363] to eat [H398] .(fierce: Heb. sharp)
1:9 They shall come [H935] all for violence [H2555] : their faces [H6440] shall sup up [H4041] [as] the east wind [H6921] , and they shall gather [H622] the captivity [H7628] as the sand [H2344] .(their: or, the supping up of their faces, etc: or, their faces shall look (Heb. the opposition of their faces) toward the east)
1:10 And they shall scoff [H7046] at the kings [H4428] , and the princes [H7336] shall be a scorn [H4890] unto them: they shall deride [H7832] every strong hold [H4013] ; for they shall heap [H6651] dust [H6083] , and take [H3920] it.
1:11 Then shall [his] mind [H7307] change [H2498] , and he shall pass over [H5674] , and offend [H816] , [imputing] this [H2098] his power [H3581] unto his god [H433] .
1:12 [Art] thou not from everlasting [H6924] , O LORD [H3068] my God [H430] , mine Holy One [H6918] ? we shall not die [H4191] . O LORD [H3068] , thou hast ordained [H7760] them for judgment [H4941] ; and, O mighty God [H6697] , thou hast established [H3245] them for correction [H3198] .(mighty: Heb. rock. established: Heb. founded)
1:13 [Thou art] of purer [H2889] eyes [H5869] than to behold [H7200] evil [H7451] , and canst [H3201] not look [H5027] on iniquity [H5999] : wherefore lookest [H5027] thou upon them that deal treacherously [H898] , [and] holdest thy tongue [H2790] when the wicked [H7563] devoureth [H1104] [the man that is] more righteous [H6662] than he?(iniquity: or, grievance)
1:14 And makest [H6213] men [H120] as the fishes [H1709] of the sea [H3220] , as the creeping things [H7431] , [that have] no ruler [H4910] over them?(creeping: or, moving)
1:15 They take up [H5927] all of them with the angle [H2443] , they catch [H1641] them in their net [H2764] , and gather [H622] them in their drag [H4365] : therefore they rejoice [H8055] and are glad [H1523] .(drag: or, flue net)
1:16 Therefore they sacrifice [H2076] unto their net [H2764] , and burn incense [H6999] unto their drag [H4365] ; because by them [H1992] their portion [H2506] [is] fat [H8082] , and their meat [H3978] plenteous [H1277] .(plenteous: or, dainty: Heb. fat)
1:17 Shall they therefore empty [H7324] their net [H2764] , and not spare [H2550] continually [H8548] to slay [H2026] the nations [H1471] ?
