2 I will astand my watch

And set myself on the rampart,

And watch to see what He will say to me,

And what I will answer when I am corrected.

The Just Live by Faith

Then the Lord answered me and said:

b“Write the vision

And make it plain on tablets,

That he may run who reads it.

3 For cthe vision is yet for an appointed time;

But at the end it will speak, and it will dnot lie.

Though it tarries, ewait for it;

Because it will fsurely come,

It will not tarry.

4 “Behold the proud,

His soul is not upright in him;

But the gjust shall live by his faith.

Woe to the Wicked

5 “Indeed, because he transgresses by wine,

He is a proud man,

And he does not stay at home.

Because he henlarges his desire as 1hell,

And he is like death, and cannot be satisfied,

He gathers to himself all nations

And heaps up for himself all peoples.
