1 De last, welken Habakuk, de profeet, gezien heeft.

2 HEERE! hoe lang schreeuw ik, en Gij hoort niet, hoe lang roep ik geweld, tot U, en Gij verlost niet!

3 Waarom laat Gij mij ongerechtigheid zien, en aanschouwt de kwelling? Want verwoesting en geweld is tegen mij over, en er is twist, en men neemt gekijf op.

4 Daarom wordt de wet onderlaten, en het recht komt nimmermeer voort; want de goddeloze omringt den rechtvaardige; daarom komt het recht verdraaid voor.

5 Ziet onder de heidenen, en aanschouwt, en verwondert u, verwondert u, want Ik werk een werk in ulieder dagen, hetwelk gij niet geloven zult, als het verteld zal worden.

6 Want ziet, Ik verwek de Chaldeen, een bitter en snel volk, trekkende door de breedten der aarde, om erfelijk te bezitten woningen, die de zijne niet zijn.

7 Schrikkelijk en vreselijk is hetzelve; zijn recht en zijn hoogheid gaat van hemzelven uit.

8 Want zijn paarden zijn lichter dan de luipaarden, en zij zijn scherper dan de avondwolven, en zijn ruiters verspreiden zich; ja, zijn ruiters zullen van verre komen, zij zullen vliegen als een arend, zich spoedende om te eten.

9 Het zal geheellijk tot geweld komen, wat zij inslorpen zullen met hun aangezichten, zullen zij brengen naar het oosten; en het zal de gevangenen verzamelen als zand.

10 En hij zal de koningen beschimpen, en de prinsen zullen hem een belaching zijn; hij zal alle vesting belachen; want hij zal stof vergaderen, en hij zal ze innemen.

11 Dan zal hij den geest veranderen, en hij zal doortrekken, en zich schuldig maken, houdende deze zijn kracht voor zijn God.

12 Zijt Gij niet van ouds af de HEERE, mijn God, mijn Heilige? Wij zullen niet sterven; o HEERE! tot een oordeel hebt Gij hem gesteld, en o Rots! om te straffen, hebt Gij hem gegrondvest.

13 Gij zijt te rein van ogen, dan dat Gij het kwade zoudt zien, en de kwelling kunt Gij niet aanschouwen; waarom zoudt Gij aanschouwen die trouwelooslijk handelen? Waarom zoudt Gij zwijgen, als de goddeloze dien verslindt, die rechtvaardiger is dan hij?

14 En waarom zoudt Gij de mensen maken, als de vissen der zee, als het kruipend gedierte, dat geen heerser heeft?

15 Hij trekt ze allen met den angel op, hij vergadert ze in zijn garen, en hij verzamelt ze in zijn net; daarom verblijdt en verheugt hij zich.

16 Daarom offert hij aan zijn garen, en rookt aan zijn net; want door dezelve is zijn deel vet geworden, en zijn spijze smoutig.

17 Zal hij dan daarom altoos zijn garen ledig maken, en zal hij niet verschonen, met altoos de volken te doden?



Exploring the Meaning of Habakkuk 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.
