1 La charge qu'Habacuc le Prophète a vue.

2 Ô Eternel! jusques à quand crierai-je, sans que tu m'écoutes? [jusques à quand] crierai-je vers toi, on me traite avec violence, sans que tu me délivres?

3 Pourquoi me fais-tu voir l'outrage, et vois-tu la perversité? [Pourquoi] y a-t-il du dégât et de la violence devant moi, et [des gens qui] excitent des procès et des querelles?

4 Parce que la Loi est sans force, et que la justice ne se fait jamais, à cause de cela le méchant environne le juste, et à cause de cela le jugement sort tout corrompu.

5 Regardez entre les nations, et voyez, et soyez étonnés et tout interdits, car je m'en vais faire en votre temps une œuvre que vous ne croirez point quand on vous la racontera.

6 Car voici, je m'en vais susciter les Caldéens, qui sont une nation cruelle et impétueuse, marchant sur l'étendue de la terre, pour posséder des demeures qui ne lui appartiennent pas.

7 Elle est affreuse et terrible, son gouvernement et son autorité viendra d'elle même.

8 Ses chevaux sont plus légers que les léopards, et ils ont la vue plus aiguë que les loups du soir; et ses gens de cheval se répandront çà et là, même ses gens de cheval viendront de loin; ils voleront comme un aigle qui se hâte pour repaître.

9 Elle viendra toute pour faire le dégât; ce qu'ils engloutiront de leurs regards [sera porté] vers l'Orient, et elle amassera les prisonniers comme du sable.

10 Elle se moque des Rois, et se joue des Princes; elle se rit de toutes les forteresses, en faisant des terrasses, elle les prendra.

11 Alors elle renforcera son courage, et passera outre, mais elle se rendra coupable, [en disant que] cette puissance qu'elle a [est] de son Dieu.

12 N'es-tu pas de toute éternité, ô Eternel! mon Dieu! mon Saint? Nous ne mourrons point; ô Eternel! Tu l'as mis pour [faire] jugement; et toi, [mon] Rocher, tu l'as fondé pour punir.

13 Tu as les yeux trop purs pour voir le mal, et tu ne saurais prendre plaisir à regarder le mal, qu'on [fait à autrui.] Pourquoi regarderais-tu les perfides, et te tairais-tu quand le méchant dévore son prochain qui est plus juste que lui ?

14 Or tu as fait les hommes comme les poissons de la mer, et comme le reptile qui n'a point de dominateur.

15 Il a tout enlevé avec l'hameçon; il l'a amassé avec son filet, et l'a assemblé dans son rets ; c'est pourquoi il se réjouira, et s'égayera.

16 A cause de cela il sacrifiera à son filet, et fera des encensements à son rets, parce qu'il aura eu par leur moyen une grasse portion, et que sa viande est une chose mœlleuse.

17 Videra-t-il à cause de cela son filet? et ne cessera-t-il jamais de faire le carnage des nations?


Exploring the Meaning of Habacuc 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.
