New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition
2 Then the Lord answered me and said:
Write the vision;
make it plain on tablets,
so that a runner may read it.
3 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.
4 Look at the proud!
Their spirit is not right in them,
but the righteous live by their faith.[a]
- Habakkuk 2:4 Or faithfulness

The Lord’s Answer
2 Then the Lord replied:
“Write(A) down the revelation
and make it plain on tablets
so that a herald[a] may run with it.
3 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)
