Therefore the law is paralyzed,
    and justice does not go forth perpetually.[a]
For the wicked surround the righteous;
    therefore justice goes forth perverted.

God’s Answer to Habakkuk

“Look among the nations and see;
    be astonished and astounded.
For a work is about to be done in your days
    that you will not believe if it is told.
For look! I am raising up the Chaldeans,
    the bitter and impetuous nation,
the one who walks through the spacious places of earth
    to take possession of dwellings not belonging to it.[b]
