Bible: Habakkuk 1:6-11
1:6 Look, I am about to empower 1 the Babylonians,
They sweep across the surface 4 of the earth,
seizing dwelling places that do not belong to them.
1:7 They are frightening and terrifying;
they decide for themselves what is right. 5
1:8 Their horses are faster than leopards
their horses come a great distance;
1:9 All of them intend 12 to do violence;
every face is determined. 13
They take prisoners as easily as one scoops up sand. 14
1:10 They mock kings
and laugh at rulers.
They laugh at every fortified city;
they build siege ramps 15 and capture them.
1:11 They sweep by like the wind and pass on. 16
But the one who considers himself a god will be held guilty.” 17
