Habakkuk Waits for God’s Answer

“I will stand at my guard post
and station myself on a tower.
I will wait and see what the Lord[a] will say about me
    and what I[b] will answer when he reprimands me.[c]

“Write out the revelation,
    engraving it clearly on the tablets,
        so that a courier may run with it.[d]
