Habakkuk 1:12-2:4 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

12 Are you not from of old,
    O Lord my God, my Holy One?
    You[a] shall not die.
O Lord, you have marked them for judgement;
    and you, O Rock, have established them for punishment.
13 Your eyes are too pure to behold evil,
    and you cannot look on wrongdoing;
why do you look on the treacherous,
    and are silent when the wicked swallow
    those more righteous than they?
14 You have made people like the fish of the sea,
    like crawling things that have no ruler.

15 The enemy[b] brings all of them up with a hook;
    he drags them out with his net,
he gathers them in his seine;
    so he rejoices and exults.
16 Therefore he sacrifices to his net
    and makes offerings to his seine;
for by them his portion is lavish,
    and his food is rich.
17 Is he then to keep on emptying his net,
    and destroying nations without mercy?

God’s Reply to the Prophet’s Complaint

I will stand at my watch-post,
    and station myself on the rampart;
I will keep watch to see what he will say to me,
    and what he[c] will answer concerning my complaint.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
Write the vision;
    make it plain on tablets,
    so that a runner may read it.
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.
Look at the proud!
    Their spirit is not right in them,
    but the righteous live by their faith.[d]

Matthew 17:14-20 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

Jesus Cures a Boy with a Demon

14 When they came to the crowd, a man came to him, knelt before him, 15 and said, ‘Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and he suffers terribly; he often falls into the fire and often into the water. 16 And I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him.’ 17 Jesus answered, ‘You faithless and perverse generation, how much longer must I be with you? How much longer must I put up with you? Bring him here to me.’ 18 And Jesus rebuked the demon,[a] and it[b] came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly. 19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, ‘Why could we not cast it out?’ 20 He said to them, ‘Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a[c] mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there”, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.’[d]
