1 Il carico che il profeta Abacuc vide.

2 INFINO a quando, o Signore, griderò io, e tu non mi esaudirai? infino a quando sclamerò a te: Violenza! e tu non salverai?

3 Perchè mi fai tu veder l’iniquità, e mi fai spettatore della perversità? e perchè vi è davanti a me rapina, e violenza? e vi è chi muove lite, e contesa?

4 Perciò, la legge è indebolita, e il giudicio non esce giammai fuori; perciocchè l’empio intornia il giusto; perciò esce il giudicio tutto storto.

5 Vedete fra le genti, e riguardate, e maravigliatevi, e siate stupefatti; perciocchè io fo un’opera a’ dì vostri, la quale voi non crederete, quando sarà raccontata.

6 Perciocchè ecco, io fo muovere i Caldei, quell’aspra e furiosa nazione, che cammina per tutta la larghezza della terra, per impodestarsi di stanze che non son sue.

7 Ella è fiera, e spaventevole; la sua ragione, e la sua altezza procede da lei stessa.

8 E i suoi cavalli saran più leggieri che pardi, e più rapaci che lupi in sul vespro; e i suoi cavalieri si spanderanno; e, venendo di lontano, voleranno, a guisa d’aquila che si affretta al pasto.

9 Ella verrà tutta per rapire; lo scontro delle lor facce sarà come un vento orientale; ed ella accoglierà prigioni a guisa di rena.

10 E si farà beffe dei re, ed i principi le saranno in derisione; si riderà d’ogni fortezza, e farà de’ terrati, e la prenderà.

11 Ma allora il vento si muterà, ed essa trapasserà, e sarà distrutta. Questa sarà la forza che le sarà data dal suo dio.

12 Non sei tu ab eterno, o Signore Iddio mio, Santo mio? noi non morremo. O Signore, tu l’hai posta per far giudicio; e tu, o Rocca, l’hai fondata per castigare.

13 Tu hai gli occhi troppo puri per vedere il male, e non puoi riguardare l’iniquità; perchè dunque riguardi i disleali? perchè taci, mentre l’empio tranghiottisce colui che è più giusto di lui?

14 E perchè hai renduti gli uomini simili a’ pesci del mare, a’ rettili che non hanno signore?

15 Egli li ha tutti tratti fuori con l’amo, egli li ha accolti nel suo giacchio, e li ha radunati nella sua rete: Perciò, egli si rallegra, e trionfa.

16 Perciò, sacrifica al suo giacchio, e fa profumo alla sua rete; perciocchè per essi la sua parte è grassa, e la sua vivanda opima.

17 Voterà egli perciò il suo giacchio, e non resterà egli giammai di uccider le genti del continuo?


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.
