Habakkuk 1:3-5 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

Why do you cause me to see injustice?
    Why do you overlook misery?
    Devastation and violence confront me.
    There is strife, and tensions rise.
For this reason the law has become powerless.[a]
    Justice is never carried out.
    In fact, the wicked overwhelm the righteous
    so that justice is perverted.

The Lord Answers

Look at the nations and pay attention! Be completely dumbfounded, because I will do something in your lifetime that you will not believe, even though you are warned ahead of time.
