Habakkuk 1:3-5 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Why do you make me see ·wrong things [evil; iniquity; injustice]
    and make me look at ·trouble [wrongdoing]?
·People are destroying things and hurting others [L Destruction and violence are] in front of me;
    ·they are arguing and fighting [L strife and conflict arise].
So the ·teachings [law; instruction; L Torah] are ·weak [paralyzed],
    and justice never comes.
Evil people ·gain while good people lose [L surround/hem in the righteous];
    ·the judges no longer make fair decisions [L so justice is perverted].

The Lord Answers

“Look at the nations!
    Watch them and be ·amazed and shocked [utterly astounded].
I will do something in your ·lifetime [L days]
    that you won’t believe even when you are told about it.
