Bible: Habakkuk 1:3-4

1:3 Why do you force me to witness injustice? 1 

Why do you put up with wrongdoing? 2 

Destruction and violence confront 3  me;

conflict is present and one must endure strife. 4 

1:4 For this reason the law lacks power, 5 

and justice is never carried out. 6 

Indeed, 7  the wicked intimidate 8  the innocent. 9 

For this reason justice is perverted. 10
