Then the Lord answered me and said:
Write the vision;
    make it plain on tablets,
    so that a runner may read it.
For there is still a vision for the appointed time;
    it speaks of the end, and does not lie.
If it seems to tarry, wait for it;
    it will surely come, it will not delay.
Look at the proud!
    Their spirit is not right in them,
    but the righteous live by their faith.[a]

The Lord’s Answer

Then the Lord replied:

“Write(A) down the revelation
    and make it plain on tablets
    so that a herald[a] may run with it.
For the revelation awaits an appointed time;(B)
    it speaks of the end(C)
    and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait(D) for it;
    it[b] will certainly come
    and will not delay.(E)

“See, the enemy is puffed up;
    his desires are not upright—
    but the righteous person(F) will live by his faithfulness[c](G)
