Habakkuk 1:4-6 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

This is why the law is ineffective
and justice never emerges.
For the wicked restrict the righteous;
therefore, justice comes out perverted.

God’s First Answer

Look at the nations[a] and observe
be utterly astounded!
For something is taking place in your days
that you will not believe
when you hear about it.
Look! I am raising up the Chaldeans,[b]
that bitter, impetuous nation
that marches across the earth’s open spaces
to seize territories not its own.
