Habakkuk 2:3-5Common English Bible (CEB)

        There is still a vision for the appointed time;
            it testifies to the end;
                it does not deceive.[a]
    If it delays, wait for it;
        for it is surely coming; it will not be late.
Some people’s desires are truly audacious;[b]
            they don’t do the right thing.
        But the righteous person will live honestly.
Moreover, wine betrays an arrogant man.
        He doesn’t rest.
        He opens his jaws[c] like the grave;[d]
            like death, he is never satisfied.
He gathers all nations to himself
        and collects all peoples for himself.
