Scripture Reading: Habakkuk 1:1-4; 2:1-4closeHabakkuk 1:1-4 1:1 The oracle that Habakkuk the prophet saw. Habakkuk's Complaint O Lord, how long shall I cry for help,
and you will not hear?
Or cry to you “Violence!”
and you will not save?
Why do you make me see iniquity,
and why do you idly look at wrong?
Destruction and violence are before me;
strife and contention arise.
So the law is paralyzed,
and justice never goes forth.
For the wicked surround the righteous;
so justice goes forth perverted.
Habakkuk 2:1-4 2:1 I will take my stand at my watchpost
and station myself on the tower,
and look out to see 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: “Write the vision;
make it plain on tablets,
so he may run who reads it.
For still the vision awaits its appointed time;
it hastens to the end—it will not lie.
If it seems slow, wait for it;
it will surely come; it will not delay. “Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him,
but the righteous shall live by his faith. (ESV)
