In peace I will both lie down and sleep;
for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:8. ESV.)
2 O LORD, how long shall I cry for help,
and you will not hear?
Or cry to you “Violence!”
and you will not save?
3 Why do you make me see iniquity,
and why do you idly look at wrong?
Destruction and violence are before me;
strife and contention arise.
4 So the law is paralyzed,
and justice never goes forth.
For the wicked surround the righteous;
so justice goes forth perverted. (Habakkuk 1:2-4.ESV.)
...but the righteous shall live by his faith. (Habakkuk 2:4. ESV.)
14 For the earth will be filled
with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD
as the waters cover the sea. (Habakkuk 2:14. ESV.)
