Habakkuk 2:15-20 Common English Bible (CEB)

15 Doom to the one who makes his companions drunk,
        pouring out your wrath in order to see them naked.[a]
16 You have drunk your fill of dishonor rather than glory.
        So drink and stagger.[b]
The cup of the Lord’s strong hand will come around to you;
        disgrace will engulf you.
17 Because of the violence done to Lebanon, he will overwhelm you;
        the destruction of animals will terrify you,
        as will human bloodshed and violence throughout the land, the villages,
            and all their inhabitants.[c]

18 Of what value is an idol, when its potter carves it,
        or a cast image that has been shaped?
It is a teacher of lies,
        for the potter trusts the pottery, though it is incapable of speaking.
19 Doom to the one saying to the tree, “Wake up!”
        or “Get up” to the silent stone.
Does it teach?
Look, it is overlaid with gold and silver,
        but there is no breath within it.
20 But the Lord is in his holy temple.
Let all the earth be silent before him.
