Habakkuk 1:3-5 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

Why dost thou show me iniquity, and cause me to behold sorrow? for spoiling, and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention.

Therefore the Law is dissolved, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth [a]compass about the righteous: therefore [b]wrong judgment proceedeth.

Behold among the heathen, and regard, and wonder, and marvel: for I will work a work in your days: [c]ye will not believe it, though it be told you.


  1. Habakkuk 1:4 To suppress him, if any should show himself zealous of God’s cause.
  2. Habakkuk 1:4 Because the judges which should redress this excess, are as evil as the rest.
  3. Habakkuk 1:5 As in times past you would not believe God’s word, so shall ye not now believe the strange plagues which are at hand.
