Habakkuk 2:1-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

God Answers the Prophet

I will stand on my guard post
And station myself on the rampart;
And I will keep watch to see what He will speak to me,
And how I may reply [a]when I am reproved.
Then the Lord answered me and said,
Record the vision
And inscribe it on tablets,
That [b]the one who [c]reads it may run.
“For the vision is yet for the appointed time;
It [d]hastens toward the goal and it will not [e]fail.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
For it will certainly come, it will not delay.
