Bible: Hab 1:13-17

1:13 You are too just 1  to tolerate 2  evil;

you are unable to condone 3  wrongdoing.

So why do you put up with such treacherous people? 4 

Why do you say nothing when the wicked devour 5  those more righteous than they are? 6 

1:14 You made people like fish in the sea,

like animals in the sea 7  that have no ruler.

1:15 The Babylonian tyrant 8  pulls them all up with a fishhook;

he hauls them in with his throw net. 9 

When he catches 10  them in his dragnet,

he is very happy. 11 

1:16 Because of his success 12  he offers sacrifices to his throw net

and burns incense to his dragnet; 13 

for because of them he has plenty of food, 14 

and more than enough to eat. 15 

1:17 Will he then 16  continue to fill and empty his throw net? 17 

Will he always 18  destroy 19  nations and spare none? 20
