Habakkuk 1:3-5 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Why do you force me to look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate[a] wrongdoing?
Oppression and violence are right in front of me.
Strife is ongoing, and conflict escalates.
This is why the law is ineffective
and justice never emerges.
For the wicked restrict the righteous;
therefore, justice comes out perverted.

God’s First Answer

Look at the nations[b] and observe
be utterly astounded!
For I am doing something in your days
that you will not believe
when you hear about it.
