Context Readings

God's Answer To Habakkuk

6 Watch out! For I am bringing in the Chaldeans, that cruel and impetuous people, who sweep across the earth dispossessing people from homes not their own. 7 They are terrible and fearsome; their brand of justice and sense of honor derive only from themselves! 8 Their horses are swifter than leopards, and more cunning than wolves that attack at night. Their horsemen are galloping as they approach from far away. They swoop in like ravenous vultures.
