Tyndale Bible

Habakkuk 2

Unto Habakkuk, waiting for an answer, is shewed that he must walk by faith.

Habakkuk 2:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. Habakkuk 2:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make [it] plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. Habakkuk 2:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For the vision [is] yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Behold, his soul [which] is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

The judgment upon the Chaldeans for unsatiableness,

Habakkuk 2:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Yea 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 unto him all nations, and heapeth unto him all people: Habakkuk 2:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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! Habakkuk 2:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them? Habakkuk 2:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men's blood, and [for] the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein.

for covetousness,

Habakkuk 2:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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! Habakkuk 2:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Thou hast consulted shame to thy house by cutting off many people, and hast sinned [against] thy soul. Habakkuk 2:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answer it.

for cruelty,

Habakkuk 2:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and establisheth a city by iniquity! Habakkuk 2:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Behold, [is it] not of the LORD of hosts that the people shall labor in the very fire, and the people shall weary themselves for very vanity? Habakkuk 2:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

for drunkeness,

Habakkuk 2:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Woe unto him that giveth his neighbor drink, that puttest thy bottle to [him], and makest [him] drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness! Habakkuk 2:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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 unto thee, and shameful spewing [shall be] on thy glory. Habakkuk 2:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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.

and for idolatry.

Habakkuk 2:18 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols? Habakkuk 2:19 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Woe unto 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. Habakkuk 2:20 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} But the LORD [is] in his holy temple: let all the earth keep silence before him.
