Then the Lord answered me and said,
(A)Write down the vision
And inscribe it clearly on tablets,
So that one who [a]reads it may run.
For the vision is yet for the (B)appointed time;
It [b]hurries toward the goal and it will not [c]fail.
Though it delays, (C)wait for it;
For it will certainly come, it (D)will not delay long.

“Behold, as for the (E)impudent one,
His soul is not right within him;
But the (F)righteous one will live by his [d]faith.
