Habakkuk 2:1-3 International Standard Version (ISV)
Habakkuk Waits for God’s Answer
2 “I will stand at my guard post
and station myself on a tower.
I will wait and see what the Lord will say about me
and what I will answer when he reprimands me.”
God’s Reply to the Prophet’s Complaint
2 When he answered, the Lord told me:
“Write out the revelation,
engraving it clearly on the tablets,
so that a courier may run with it.
3 For the revelation pertains to an appointed time—
it speaks truthfully about the end.
Though it delays, wait for it,
because it will surely come about—
it will not be late!
