The Book of Habakkuk of the Christian Holy Bible

Habakkuk 1:1 The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see.  

Habakkuk 1:2 O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not  hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt  not save! 

Habakkuk 1:3 Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause  me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are  before me: and there are that raise up strife and  contention. 

Habakkuk 1:4 Therefore the law is slacked, and  judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass  about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.  

Habakkuk 1:5 Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and  wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days,  which ye will not believe, though it be told you. 

Habakkuk 1:6  For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty  nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to  possess the dwelling places that are not theirs. 

Habakkuk 1:7 They  are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity  shall proceed of themselves. 

Habakkuk 1:8 Their horses also are  swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the  evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread  themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they  shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.
