Habakkuk 2:2-4 New English Translation (NET Bible)
The Lord Assures Habakkuk
2 The Lord responded:
“Write down this message! Record it legibly on tablets,
so the one who announces it may read it easily.
3 For the message is a witness to what is decreed;
it gives reliable testimony about how matters will turn out.
Even if the message is not fulfilled right away, wait patiently;
for it will certainly come to pass—it will not arrive late.
4 Look, the one whose desires are not upright will faint from exhaustion,
but the person of integrity will live because of his faithfulness.
