Habakkuk 1:2-3 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

The Prophet’s Complaint

O Lord, how long shall I cry for help,
    and thou wilt not hear?
Or cry to thee “Violence!”
    and thou wilt not save?
Why dost thou make me see wrongs
    and look upon trouble?
Destruction and violence are before me;
    strife and contention arise.

Habakkuk 2:2-4 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

And the Lord answered me:
“Write the vision;
    make it plain upon tablets,
    so he may run who reads it.
For still the vision awaits its time;
    it hastens to the end—it will not lie.
If it seem slow, wait for it;
    it will surely come, it will not delay.
Behold, he whose soul is not upright in him shall fail,[a]
    but the righteous shall live by his faith.[b]
