THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Habakkuk (Author Habakkuk)

1:6For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwellingplaces that are not theirs.

1:7They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their dignity shall proceed of themselves.

1:8Their horses also are swifter than the leopards, and are more fierce than the evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat.

1:9They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand.

1:10And they shall scoff at the kings, and the princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every strong hold; for they shall heap dust, and take it.

1:11Then shall his mind change, and he shall pass over, and offend, imputing this his power unto his god.
