I will take my post;
        I will position myself on the fortress.
        I will keep watch to see what the Lord says to me
        and how he[a] will respond to my complaint.

The Lord responds

Then the Lord answered me and said,

Write a vision, and make it plain upon a tablet
    so that a runner can read it.[b]
        There is still a vision for the appointed time;
            it testifies to the end;
                it does not deceive.[c]
    If it delays, wait for it;
        for it is surely coming; it will not be late.
