 1

The oracle that the prophet Habakkuk saw.

 

The Prophet’s Complaint

2

O Lord, how long shall I cry for help,

and you will not listen?

Or cry to you “Violence!”

and you will not save?

3

Why do you make me see wrongdoing

and look at trouble?

Destruction and violence are before me;

strife and contention arise.

4

So the law becomes slack

and justice never prevails.

The wicked surround the righteous—

therefore judgment comes forth perverted.
