1 The burden which Habakkuk þe Prophet did see.

2 O Lord, howe long shall I crie, and thou wilt not heare! euen cry out vnto thee of violence, and thou wilt not saue?

3 Why doest thou shew me iniquity, & cause me to behold grieuance? for spoiling and violence are before me: & there are that raise vp strife and contention.

4 Therefore the Lawe is slacked, and iudgement doeth neuer goe foorth: for the wicked doeth compasse about the righteous: therfore wrong iudgement proceedeth.

5 Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marueilously: for I wil worke a worke in your daies, which yee will not beleeue, though it be tolde you.

6 For loe, I raise vp the Caldeans, that bitter and hastie nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possesse the dwelling places that are not theirs.

7 They are terrible and dreadfull: their iudgement and their dignity shal proceed of themselues.

8 Their horses also are swifter then the leopards, and are more fierce then the euening wolues: & their horsemen shall spread themselues, and their horsemen shall come from farre, they shall flie as the Eagle that hasteth to eate.

9 They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup vp as the East winde, and they shall gather the captiuitie as the sand.

10 And they shal scoffe at the Kings, and the Princes shall bee a scorne vnto them: they shall deride euery strong holde, for they shall heape dust & take it.

11 Then shall his minde change, and he shall passe ouer, and offend, imputing this his power vnto his God.

12 Art thou not from euerlasting, O Lord my God, mine Holy one? we shall not die: O Lord, thou hast ordained them for iudgement, and O mightie God, thou hast established them for correction.

13 Thou art of purer eyes then to beholde euill, and canst not looke on ininquitie: wherefore lookest thou vpon them that deale treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked deuoureth the man that is more righteous then hee?

14 And makest men as the fishes of the Sea, as the creeping things, that haue no ruler ouer them.

15 They take vp all of them with the angle: they catch them in their net, and gather them in their dragge; therefore they reioyce and are glad.

16 Therefore they sacrifice vnto their net, and burne incense vnto their drag: because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous.

17 Shall they therefore emptie their net, and not spare continually to slay the nations?

The Chaldeans are the Germans they started WW1 and WW2 and will start WW3. They slay nations, God uses them to correct nations Israel, US and Britain. They have forsaken his Law.

I believe this Chapter echos America today - we are the Chaldens. Our militeray dictatorship marching throughout the breadth of the Land forcefully setting up military bases without regard for humanity and acquiring what is not ours.


Timothy Wayne George's Habakkuk Chapter 1 comment on 6/04/2012, 6:04am...

Habakkuk is a watchman, and he is crying out to God to do something about the evil that is going on in Judea. Well the Lord is about to use a nation more wicked than them to correct them.

So it is today, that the Lord will use the wicked people today to correct his people. God is holy, and his eyes too pure to look upon sin. No wonder why when Jesus cried out on the cross my
God why has thou forsaken me? It was at that time when our sin was placed on the Lord Jesus Christ, that the father had to turn his back on the son. Thank God that Jesus became our propituation. The discipline of the present time is not joyous, but grievous, yet nevertheless it yields the peaciable fruits of righteousness to those who are exercised there by. So God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that who ever believes in him would not perish, but would have eternal life. Jesus is our life, and when we come to him by faith, we will live with him through out eternity in heaven. So the just shall live by faith, and wait on the Lord. For the vision is for the end time, and it shall tarry yet it will speak.
