I will (A)take my stand at my watchpost
    and station myself on the tower,
and (B)look out to see (C)what he will say to me,
    and what I will answer concerning my complaint.

The Righteous Shall Live by His Faith

And the Lord answered me:

(D)“Write the vision;
    make it plain on tablets,
    so he may run who reads it.
For still (E)the vision awaits its appointed time;
    it hastens to the end—it will not lie.
If it seems slow, (F)wait for it;
    (G)it will surely come; it will not delay.

“Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him,
    but (H)the righteous shall live by his faith.[a]
