Habakkuk 1:3-5 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
3 Why do you let me see iniquity?
why do you simply gaze at evil?
Destruction and violence are before me;
there is strife and discord.
4 This is why the law is numb
and justice never comes,
For the wicked surround the just;
this is why justice comes forth perverted.
5 Look over the nations and see!
Be utterly amazed!
For a work is being done in your days
that you would not believe, were it told.
