Habakkuk 1:5-11View Full Chapter
The LORD’s Answer 5“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.
6I am raising up the Babylonians,
7They are a feared and dreaded people; they are a law to themselves and promote their own honor.
8Their horses are swifter than leopards, fiercer than wolves at dusk. Their cavalry gallops headlong; their horsemen come from afar. They fly like an eagle swooping to devour;
9they all come intent on violence. Their hordes
10They mock kings and scoff at rulers. They laugh at all fortified cities; by building earthen ramps they capture them.
11Then they sweep past like the wind and go on— guilty people, whose own strength is their god.”
