Habakkuk 1:7-9 Common English Bible (CEB)

The Chaldean is dreadful and fearful.
        He makes his own justice and dignity.[a]
His horses are faster than leopards;
        they are quicker than wolves of the evening.
    His horsemen charge forward;
        his horsemen come from far away.
            They fly in to devour, swiftly, like an eagle.[b]
They come for violence,
        the horde with all their faces set toward the desert.[c]
He takes captives like sand.
