    in the midst of my days—
(B)you whose years endure
    throughout all generations!”

Habakkuk's Second Complaint

12 Are you not (A)from everlasting,
    O Lord my God, my Holy One?
    (B)We shall not die.
O Lord, (C)you have ordained them as a judgment,
    and you, O (D)Rock, have established them for reproof.

10 I said, (A)In the middle[a] of my days
    I must depart;
I am consigned to the gates of Sheol
    for the rest of my years.
11 I said, I shall not see the Lord,
    the Lord (B)in the land of the living;
I shall look on man no more
    among the inhabitants of the world.
12 My dwelling is plucked up and removed from me
    (C)like a shepherd's tent;
(D)like a weaver (E)I have rolled up my life;
    (F)he cuts me off from the loom;
(G)from day to night you bring me to an end;
13     (H)I calmed myself[b] until morning;
like a lion (I)he breaks all my bones;
    from day to night you bring me to an end.

14 Like (J)a swallow or a crane I chirp;
    (K)I moan like a dove.
(L)My eyes are weary with looking upward.
    O Lord, I am oppressed; (M)be my pledge of safety!
15 What shall I say? For he has spoken to me,
    and he himself has done it.
(N)I walk slowly all my years
    because of the bitterness of my soul.

16 (O)O Lord, by these things men live,
    and in all these is the life of my spirit.
    Oh restore me to health and make me live!
17 (P)Behold, it was for my welfare
    that I had great bitterness;
(Q)but in love you have delivered my life
    from the pit of destruction,
(R)for you have cast all my sins
    behind your back.
18 (S)For Sheol does not thank you;
    death does not praise you;
those who go down to the pit do not hope
    for your faithfulness.
19 The living, the living, he thanks you,
    as I do this day;
(T)the father makes known to the children
    your faithfulness.

20 The Lord will save me,
    and we will play my music on stringed instruments
all the days of our lives,
    (U)at the house of the Lord.

21 (V)Now Isaiah had said, “Let them take a cake of figs and apply it to the boil, that he may recover.” 22 Hezekiah also had said, “What is the sign that I shall go up to the house of the Lord?”
