Habakkuk 2 - AMP

2 And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets that everyone who passes may read as he hastens by. 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end ; it will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait for it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its appointed day. 4 Look at the proud; his soul is not straight or right within him, but the just and the righteous man shall There is a curious passage in the Talmud which says that Moses gave six hundred injunctions to the Israelites. As these commands might prove too numerous to commit to memory, David brought them down to eleven in Psalm 15. Isaiah reduced these eleven to six in chapter 33:15. Micah (6:8) further reduced them to three; and Isaiah (56:1) once more brought them down to two. These two Amos (5:4) reduced to one. However, lest it might be supposed from this that God could be found only in the fulfillment of the law, Habakkuk (2:KJV) said, ``The just shall live by his faith" (William H. Saulez, The Romance of the Hebrew Language).live by his faith and in his faithfulness. 5 Moreover, wine and The Dead Sea Scrolls read ``wealth."wealth are treacherous; the proud man is restless and cannot stay at home. His appetite is large like that of Sheol and is like death and cannot be satisfied; he gathers to himself all nations and collects all people as if he owned them. 6 Shall not all these take up a taunt against him and in scoffing derision of him say, Woe to him who piles up that which is not his! And who loads himself with promissory notes for usury! 7 Shall not rise up suddenly who shall bite you, exacting usury of you, and those awake who will vex you ? Then you will be booty for them. 8 Because you have plundered many nations, all who are left of the people shall plunder you--because of men's blood and for the violence done to the earth, to the city and all the people who live in each city. 9 Woe to him who obtains wicked gain for his house, to set his nest on high that he may be preserved from calamity and delivered from the power of evil! 10 You have devised shame to your house by cutting off and putting an end to many peoples, and you have sinned against and forfeited your own life. 11 For the stone shall cry out of the wall , and the beam out of the woodwork will answer it . 12 Woe to him who builds a town with blood and establishes a city by iniquity! 13 Behold, is it not by appointment of the Lord of hosts that the nations toil only to satisfy the fire , and the peoples weary themselves only for emptiness, falsity, and futility? 14 But the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. 15 Woe to him who gives his neighbors drink, who pours out your bottle to them and adds to it your poisonous and blighting wrath and also makes them drunk, that you may look on their stripped condition and pour out foul shame ! 16 You will be filled with shame and contempt instead of glory. Drink also and be like an uncircumcised ! The cup in the Lord's right hand will come around to you , and foul shame shall be upon your own glory! 17 For the violence done to Lebanon will cover and overwhelm you; the destruction of the animals will terrify you on account of men's blood and the violence done to the land, to the city and all its inhabitants. 18 What profit is the graven image when its maker has formed it? It is only a molten image and a teacher of lies. For the maker trusts in his own creations when he makes dumb idols. 19 Woe to him who says to the wooden image, Awake! and to the dumb stone, Arise, teach! behold, it is laid over with gold and silver and there is no breath at all inside it! 20 But the Lord is in His holy temple; let all the earth hush and keep silence before Him.
