Habakkuk 2New International Version (NIV)
2 I will stand at my watch
The Lord’s Answer
2 Then the Lord replied:
“Write down the revelation
4 “See, the enemy is puffed up;
6 “Will not all of them taunt him with ridicule and scorn, saying,
“‘Woe to him who piles up stolen goods
9 “Woe to him who builds his house by unjust gain,
12 “Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed
15 “Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbors,
18 “Of what value is an idol carved by a craftsman?
20 The Lord is in his holy temple;
Habakkuk 2The Voice (VOICE)
2 I will take my place at the watchtower.
Eternal One (to Habakkuk): 2 Write down this vision.
4 So I wrote, “Look how pompous he is!
5 Indeed, wine betrays the proud man who is always restless.
6 Will not all these nations raise up their litany of insults?
9 Woe to him who builds his house on such evil profits,
12 Woe to him who builds a city on bloodshed
15 Woe to you who gives his neighbors a drink,
18 What use is an idol shaped by its maker?
20 But the Eternal One is in His holy temple.
