Habakkuk 2 ©
Unto Habakkuk, waiting for an answer, is showed that he must wait in faith. The judgment of the Chaldeans for insatiableness, ambition, cruelty, treacherous dealing, and idolatry.
For the vision is yet for dan appointed time, but eat the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
¶4Yea also, hbecause he transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire ias hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people:
Because mthou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; nbecause of men's 6blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.
¶Woe to him that 7coveteth an evil covetousness to his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from the 8power of evil!
For wthe violence of Lebanon shall cover thee, and the spoil of beasts, which made them afraid, because of men's blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.
¶xWhat profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a yteacher of lies, that 16the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols?
