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.
2 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.
His soul is not upright in him;
But the gjust shall live by his faith.
5 “Indeed, because he transgresses by wine,
He is a proud man,
And he does not stay at home.
And he is like death, and cannot be satisfied,
He gathers to himself all nations
And heaps up for himself all peoples.
