Habakkuk 1:6-8 Modern English Version (MEV)

For I am raising up the Chaldeans,
    that bitter and hasty nation
which marches through the breadth of the earth,
    to possess dwelling places that are not theirs.
They are terrible and dreadful;
    their justice and their dignity
    proceed from themselves.
Their horses are swifter than leopards,
    more fierce than evening wolves.
Their horsemen charge on;
    their horsemen come from afar;
they fly like the eagle that hastens to eat.

Habakkuk 1:6-8 New International Version (NIV)

I am raising up the Babylonians,[a]
    that ruthless and impetuous people,
who sweep across the whole earth
    to seize dwellings not their own.
They are a feared and dreaded people;
    they are a law to themselves
    and promote their own honor.
Their 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;
