HABBAKKUK’S LAMENT

How long Oh Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save? Why do you make me look at injustice? Why do you tolerate wrong?…

“Look at the nations and watch – and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.” “Woe to him who builds his realm by unjust gain…you have plotted the ruin of many peoples…Woe to him who builds a city by bloodshed and establishes a town by crime. For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”
