Habakkuk 1:1–4

The pronouncementa that the prophet Habakkuk saw.b


How long,c Lord, must I call for helpd

and you do not listen

or cry out to you about violencee

and you do not save?

Why do you force me to look at injustice?f

Why do you tolerate* wrongdoing?

Oppression and violence are right in front of me.

Strife is ongoing, and conflict escalates.

This is why the law is ineffective

and justice never emerges.

For the wicked restrictg the righteous;

therefore, justiceh comes out perverted.
