Habakkuk 1:5–11

5 aLook among the nations! Observe!

Be astonished! bWonder!

Because I am doing csomething in your days—

You would not believe if 1you were told.

6 “For behold, I am araising up the Chaldeans,

That 1fierce and impetuous people

Who march 2throughout the earth

To 3bseize dwelling places which are not theirs.

7 “They are dreaded and afeared;

Their bjustice and 1authority 2originate with themselves.

8 “Their ahorses are swifter than leopards

And 1keener than bwolves in the evening.

Their 2horsemen come galloping,

Their horsemen come from afar;

They fly like an ceagle swooping down to devour.

9 “All of them come for violence.

1Their horde of afaces moves forward.

They collect captives like sand.

10 “They amock at kings

And rulers are a laughing matter to them.

They blaugh at every fortress

And cheap up rubble to capture it.

11 “Then they will sweep through like the awind and pass on.

But they will be held bguilty,

They whose cstrength is their god.”
