Habakkuk 1
1 This is the message that the prophet Habakkuk received in a vision.

Habakkuk’s Complaint
2 How long, O Lord, must I call for help?
But you do not listen!
“Violence is everywhere!” I cry,
but you do not come to save.
3 Must I forever see these evil deeds?
Why must I watch all this misery?
Wherever I look,
I see destruction and violence.
I am surrounded by people
who love to argue and fight.
4 The law has become paralyzed,
and there is no justice in the courts.
The wicked far outnumber the righteous,
so that justice has become perverted.

The Lord’s Reply
5 The Lord replied,

“Look around at the nations;
look and be amazed![a]
For I am doing something in your own day,
something you wouldn’t believe
even if someone told you about it.
6 I am raising up the Babylonians,[b]
a cruel and violent people.
They will march across the world
and conquer other lands.
7 They are notorious for their cruelty
and do whatever they like.
8 Their horses are swifter than cheetahs[c]
and fiercer than wolves at dusk.
Their charioteers charge from far away.
Like eagles, they swoop down to devour their prey.

9 “On they come, all bent on violence.
Their hordes advance like a desert wind,
sweeping captives ahead of them like sand.


5 thoughts on “Habakkuk 1 Daily Bible Reading with Paul Nison

  1. It’s not truly a prayer, as it is a exclamation of the greatest commandment, that can be reworded into a prayer. It’s called a Jewish prayer because Jews have, for centuries, began their Torah teachings with it. Just don’t forget Matt 6

  2. I often forget that, when I see the current batch of evil doers going unpunished, that the Father has a plan I don’t see. This helps me remember that justice is on His terms and in His time, not mine. Shalom
