Bible: Habakkuk 2:6-8
The Proud Babylonians are as Good as Dead
2:6 “But all these nations will someday taunt him 1
and ridicule him with proverbial sayings: 2
‘The one who accumulates what does not belong to him is as good as dead 3
(How long will this go on?) 4 –
he who gets rich by extortion!’ 5
2:7 Your creditors will suddenly attack; 6
those who terrify you will spring into action, 7
and they will rob you. 8
2:8 Because you robbed many countries, 9
all who are left among the nations 10 will rob you.
You have shed human blood
and committed violent acts against lands, cities, 11 and those who live in them.
