Habakkuk 1 Text (WEB)
  1. The oracle which Habakkuk the prophet saw.
  2. Yahweh, how long will I cry, and you will not hear? I cry out to you "Violence!" and will you not save?
  3. Why do you show me iniquity, and look at perversity? For destruction and violence are before me. There is strife, and contention rises up.
  4. Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth; for the wicked surround the righteous; therefore justice goes forth perverted.
  5. "Look among the nations, watch, and wonder marvelously; for I am working a work in your days, which you will not believe though it is told you.
  6. For, behold, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, that march through the breadth of the earth, to possess dwelling places that are not theirs.
  7. They are feared and dreaded. Their judgment and their dignity proceed from themselves.
  8. Their horses also are swifter than leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves. Their horsemen press proudly on. Yes, their horsemen come from afar. They fly as an eagle that hurries to devour.
  9. All of them come for violence. Their hordes face the desert. He gathers prisoners like sand.
  10. Yes, he scoffs at kings, and princes are a derision to him. He laughs at every stronghold, for he builds up an earthen ramp, and takes it.
  11. Then he sweeps by like the wind, and goes on. He is indeed guilty, whose strength is his god."
  12. Aren't you from everlasting, Yahweh my God, my Holy One? We will not die. Yahweh, you have appointed him for judgment. You, Rock, have established him to punish.
  13. You who have purer eyes than to see evil, and who cannot look on perversity, why do you tolerate those who deal treacherously, and keep silent when the wicked swallows up the man who is more righteous than he,
  14. and make men like the fish of the sea, like the creeping things, that have no ruler over them?
  15. He takes up all of them with the hook. He catches them in his net, and gathers them in his dragnet. Therefore he rejoices and is glad.
  16. Therefore he sacrifices to his net, and burns incense to his dragnet, because by them his life is luxurious, and his food is good.
  17. Will he therefore continually empty his net, and kill the nations without mercy?
Habakkuk 1 Text (Hebrew)
  1. המשא אשר חזה חבקוק הנביא׃
  2. עד־אנה יהוה שועתי ולא תשמע אזעק אליך חמס ולא תושיע׃
  3. למה תראני און ועמל תביט ושד וחמס לנגדי ויהי ריב ומדון ישא׃
  4. על־כן תפוג תורה ולא־יצא לנצח משפט כי רשע מכתיר את־הצדיק על־כן יצא משפט מעקל׃
  5. ראו בגוים והביטו והתמהו תמהו כי־פעל פעל בימיכם לא תאמינו כי יספר׃
  6. כי־הנני מקים את־הכשדים הגוי המר והנמהר ההולך למרחבי־ארץ לרשת משכנות לא־לו׃
  7. אים ונורא הוא ממנו משפטו ושאתו יצא׃
  8. וקלו מנמרים סוסיו וחדו מזאבי ערב ופשו פרשיו ופרשיו מרחוק יבאו יעפו כנשר חש לאכול׃
  9. כלה לחמס יבוא מגמת פניהם קדימה ויאסף כחול שבי׃
  10. והוא במלכים יתקלס ורזנים משחק לו הוא לכל־מבצר ישחק ויצבר עפר וילכדה׃
  11. אז חלף רוח ויעבר ואשם זו כחו לאלהו׃
  12. הלוא אתה מקדם יהוה אלהי קדשי לא נמות יהוה למשפט שמתו וצור להוכיח יסדתו׃
  13. טהור עינים מראות רע והביט אל־עמל לא תוכל למה תביט בוגדים תחריש בבלע רשע צדיק ממנו׃
  14. ותעשה אדם כדגי הים כרמש לא־משל בו׃
  15. כלה בחכה העלה יגרהו בחרמו ויאספהו במכמרתו על־כן ישמח ויגיל׃
  16. על־כן יזבח לחרמו ויקטר למכמרתו כי בהמה שמן חלקו ומאכלו בראה׃
  17. העל כן יריק חרמו ותמיד להרג גוים לא יחמול׃ ס
Habakkuk 1 Text (Greek)
  1. το λημμα ο ειδεν αμβακουμ ο
  2. εως τινος κυριε κεκραξομαι και ου μη εισακουσης βοησομαι προς σε αδικουμενος και ου
  3. ινα τι μοι εδειξας κοπους και πονους επιβλεπειν ταλαιπωριαν και ασεβειαν εξ εναντιας μου γεγονεν κρισις και ο κριτης
  4. δια τουτο διεσκεδασται νομος και ου διεξαγεται εις τελος κριμα οτι ο ασεβης καταδυναστευει τον δικαιον ενεκεν τουτου εξελευσεται το κριμα
  5. ιδετε οι καταφρονηται και επιβλεψατε και θαυμασατε θαυμασια και αφανισθητε διοτι εργον εγω εργαζομαι εν ταις ημεραις υμων ο ου μη πιστευσητε εαν τις
  6. διοτι ιδου εγω εξεγειρω εφ' υμας τους χαλδαιους τους μαχητας το εθνος το πικρον και το ταχινον το πορευομενον επι τα πλατη της γης του κατακληρονομησαι σκηνωματα ουκ
  7. φοβερος και επιφανης εστιν εξ αυτου το κριμα αυτου εσται και το λημμα αυτου εξ αυτου
  8. και εξαλουνται υπερ παρδαλεις οι ιπποι αυτου και οξυτεροι υπερ τους λυκους της αραβιας και εξιππασονται οι ιππεις αυτου και ορμησουσιν μακροθεν και πετασθησονται ως αετος προθυμος εις το
  9. συντελεια εις ασεβεις ηξει ανθεστηκοτας προσωποις αυτων εξ εναντιας και συναξει ως αμμον
  10. και αυτος εν βασιλευσιν εντρυφησει και τυραννοι παιγνια αυτου και αυτος εις παν οχυρωμα εμπαιξεται και βαλει χωμα και κρατησει
  11. τοτε μεταβαλει το πνευμα και διελευσεται και εξιλασεται αυτη η ισχυς τω θεω
  12. ουχι συ απ' αρχης κυριε ο θεος ο αγιος μου και ου μη αποθανωμεν κυριε εις κριμα τεταχας αυτον και επλασεν με του ελεγχειν παιδειαν
  13. καθαρος οφθαλμος του μη οραν πονηρα και επιβλεπειν επι πονους ου δυνηση ινα τι επιβλεπεις επι καταφρονουντας παρασιωπηση εν τω καταπινειν ασεβη τον
  14. και ποιησεις τους ανθρωπους ως τους ιχθυας της θαλασσης και ως τα ερπετα τα ουκ εχοντα
  15. συντελειαν εν αγκιστρω ανεσπασεν και ειλκυσεν αυτον εν αμφιβληστρω και συνηγαγεν αυτον εν ταις σαγηναις αυτου ενεκεν τουτου ευφρανθησεται και χαρησεται η καρδια
  16. ενεκεν τουτου θυσει τη σαγηνη αυτου και θυμιασει τω αμφιβληστρω αυτου οτι εν αυτοις ελιπανεν μεριδα αυτου και τα βρωματα αυτου
  17. δια τουτο αμφιβαλει το αμφιβληστρον αυτου και δια παντος αποκτεννειν εθνη ου
Habakkuk 1 Text (Latin)
  1. Onus quod vidit Habacuc propheta.
  2. Usquequo, Domine, clamabo,et non exaudies ? vociferabor ad te, vim patiens, et non salvabis ?
  3. Quare ostendisti mihi iniquitatem et laborem, videre prædam et injustitiam contra me ? Et factum est judicium, et contradictio potentior.
  4. Propter hoc lacerata est lex, et non pervenit usque ad finem judicium ; quia impius prævalet adversus justum, propterea egreditur judicium perversum.
  5. Aspicite in gentibus, et videte ; admiramini, et obstupescite : quia opus factum est in diebus vestris, quod nemo credet cum narrabitur.
  6. Quia ecce ego suscitabo Chaldæos, gentem amaram et velocem, ambulantem super latitudinem terræ, ut possideat tabernacula non sua.
  7. Horribilis et terribilis est : ex semetipsa judicium et onus ejus egredietur.
  8. Leviores pardis equi ejus, et velociores lupis vespertinis : et diffundentur equites ejus : equites namque ejus de longe venient ; volabunt quasi aquila festinans ad comedendum.
  9. Omnes ad prædam venient, facies eorum ventus urens ; et congregabit quasi arenam captivitatem.
  10. Et ipse de regibus triumphabit, et tyranni ridiculi ejus erunt ; ipse super omnem munitionem ridebit, et comportabit aggerem, et capiet eam.
  11. Tunc mutabitur spiritus, et pertransibit, et corruet : hæc est fortitudo ejus dei sui.
  12. Numquid non tu a principio, Domine, Deus meus, sancte meus, et non moriemur ? Domine, in judicium posuisti eum, et fortem, ut corriperes, fundasti eum.
  13. Mundi sunt oculi tui, ne videas malum, et respicere ad iniquitatem non poteris. Quare respicis super iniqua agentes, et taces devorante impio justiorem se ?
  14. Et facies homines quasi pisces maris, et quasi reptile non habens principem.
  15. Totum in hamo sublevavit, traxit illud in sagena sua, et congregavit in rete suum. Super hoc lætabitur, et exsultabit.
  16. Propterea immolabit sagenæ suæ, et sacrificabit reti suo, quia in ipsis incrassata est pars ejus, et cibus ejus electus.
  17. Propter hoc ergo expandit sagenam suam, et semper interficere gentes non parcet.
Habakkuk 1 Text (KJV)
  1. The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see.
  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!
  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.
  4. Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.
  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.
  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 dwellingplaces that are not theirs.
  7. They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.
  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.
  9. They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.
  10. And they shall scoff at the kings, and the princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every strong hold; for they shall heap dust, and take it.
  11. Then shall his mind change, and he shall pass over, and offend, imputing this his power unto his god.
  12. Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die. O LORD, thou hast ordained them for judgment; and, O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction.
  13. Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?
  14. And makest men as the fishes of the sea, as the creeping things, that have no ruler over them?
  15. They take up all of them with the angle, they catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag: therefore they rejoice and are glad.
  16. Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous.
  17. Shall they therefore empty their net, and not spare continually to slay the nations?
