Habakkuk 2

2:1 I will stand upon my watch, and seat myself upon the tower,
 and will watch to see what he will say to me, and what I shall
 answer when I am reproved.
2:2 And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and
 make [it] plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.
2:3 For the vision [is] yet for an appointed time, but at the
 end it shall speak, and not lie: though it may tarry, wait for
 it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
2:4 Behold, his soul [which] is lifted up, is not upright in
 him: but the just shall live by his faith.
2:5 Yes also, because he transgresseth by wine, [he is] a proud
 man, neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire, as
 hell, and [is] as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth
 to him all nations, and collecteth to him all people:
2:6 Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a
 taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that
 increaseth [that which is] not his! how long? and to him that
 ladeth himself with thick clay!
2:7 Shall they not rise suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake
 that shall disturb thee, and thou shalt be for booties to them?
2:8 Because thou hast laid waste many nations, all the remnant
 of the people shall lay thee waste; because of men's blood, and
 [for] the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that
 dwell therein.
2:9 Woe to him that coveteth an evil covetousness to his house,
 that he may set his nest on high, that he may be delivered from
 the power of evil!
2:10 Thou hast consulted shame to thy house by cutting off many
 people, and hast sinned [against] thy soul.
2:11 For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out
 of the timber shall answer it.
2:12 Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and
 establisheth a city by iniquity!
2:13 Behold, [is it] not from the LORD of hosts that the people
 shall labor in the very fire, and the people shall weary
 themselves for very vanity?
2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the
 glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
2:15 Woe to him that giveth his neighbor drink, that puttest thy
 bottle to [him], and makest [him] drunken also, that thou
 mayest look on their nakedness!
2:16 Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink thou also, and
 let thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD'S right hand
 shall be turned to thee, and shameful vomiting [shall be] on
 thy glory.
2:17 For the 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.
2:18 What profiteth the graven image that its maker hath graven
 it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of
 his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols?
2:19 Woe to him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb
 stone, Arise, it shall teach! Behold, it [is] laid over with
 gold and silver, and [there is] no breath at all in the midst
 of it.
2:20 But the LORD [is] in his holy temple: let all the earth
 keep silence before him.
