1 Die Godspraak wat Hábakuk, die profeet, gesien het.

2 Hoe lank, o HERE, roep ek om hulp, maar U hoor nie; skreeu ek tot U: Geweld! --maar U help nie?

3 Waarom laat U my onreg sien en aanskou U die moeite! Ja, verwoesting en geweld is voor my ; en daar is stryd, en twis begin.

4 Daarom verloor die wet sy krag, en die reg kom nooit meer te voorskyn nie; want die goddelose omsingel die regverdige, daarom kom die reg verdraaid te voorskyn.

5 Aanskou onder die nasies en merk op, en staan verstom, verstom; want Ek gaan iets in julle dae doen wat julle nie sal glo as dit vertel word nie.

6 Want kyk, Ek gaan die Chaldeërs opwek, daardie kwaai en onstuimige nasie wat trek deur die wydtes van die aarde, om wonings in besit te neem wat aan hom nie behoort nie.

7 Verskriklik en gedug is hy, van homself gaan sy reg en hoogheid uit.

8 En vinniger as luiperds is sy perde en gouer as aandwolwe; en op 'n galop kom sy ruiters, ja, sy ruiters! Van ver kom hulle aangevlieg net soos 'n arend wat op sy prooi neerskiet!

9 Hulle kom almal om geweld te pleeg; die rigting van hulle gesigte is vorentoe, sodat hy gevangenes versamel soos sand.

10 Ook dryf hy die spot met konings, en vorste is vir hom 'n belagging; hy lag om elke vesting; hy hoop grond daarteen op en neem dit in.

11 Dan gly hy verby, 'n wind, en trek verder--maar word skuldig, hy wie se krag sy god is.

12 Is U dan nie uit die voortyd nie, o HERE, my God, my Heilige? Ons sal nie sterwe nie. HERE, tot 'n strafoordeel het U hom bestel en, o Rots, tot 'n tugroede het U hom bestem!

13 U, wat te rein is van om die kwaad aan te sien en die onreg nie kan aanskou nie--waarom aanskou U die trouelose, swyg U wanneer die goddelose dié verslind wat regverdiger is as hy?

14 So maak U dan mense soos visse van die see, soos kruipende gedierte wat geen heerser oor hulle het nie.

15 Hy trek hulle almal op met die hoek, sleep hulle in sy net en vergader hulle in sy seën; daarom is hy vrolik en juig.

16 Daarom offer hy aan sy net en laat rook opgaan vir sy seën; want deur hulle is sy aandeel vet en sy spys weelderig.

17 Sal hy daarom sy net uitskud en gedurigdeur nasies doodmaak sonder verskoning?


Exploring the Meaning of Habakuk 1      

Napsal(a) Joe David

Habakkuk's message to the Jewish church of his day was that it was in serious spiritual trouble. Interest in the real things of the Lord had been replaced by superficiality. The church had become sensual. The people were interested in their own comfort and security. Justice and truth were perishing.

The Lord grieved over their choices. Instead of the church coming to its senses to see that their problems were of their own choosing, they turned to find “compelling” ways to blame the Lord. While blaming the Lord for all misfortunes, the church continued to actively profane all the truths and goods of the Word.

To illustrate the depth of Israel’s choices, “a bitter and hasty nation” of Chaldeans rose up against Israel. The Chaldeans came with horses swifter than leopards and more fierce than wolves. The Chaldeans’ pride caused them to scoff at kings. They took many captives. The attitude of the Chaldeans reflected that which resided in the hearts and minds of Israel.

The Children of Israel didn’t get the message. They failed to see the application of what they were doing to the spiritual things of the church. The Lord’s grief continued because their evil prevailed over the good, and they were destroying the last vestiges of good.
