Chapter 1[edit]

1 The vision which was foreseen, by the prophet Chavakuk(Habakkuk).

2 Until now, Yahweh, I have entreated and you will not hear: I cry onto you "violence", and you will not save. 3 Why will you show me the crooked, and glance at ill deeds, and plunder and violence in front of me, and there will be an argument and strife carrying forth?

4 For this reason, the Torah expires, and a judgement will not come out to eternity, because the wicked crowns the righteous, for this reason a contorted judgement came forth. 5 Look the nations, and view, and be struck dumb. Because works he works in your days, that you will not believe if be told.

6 Because I now raise up the Kashdim(Chaldeans), the bitter and swifter national, that walks the width of the Earth, to the net, no roof on him. 7 Ominously scary is he, from him, his judgement and his burden will come forth.

8 And his horses fleeter than tigers, and sharper than the wolves of the evening, and his interpreters spread out, and his interpreters will come from a distance, they will fly as the eagle that feels hungry.

9 He will come all for violence, their faces determination forward, and will gather captives as the sand. 10 And he in the kings will scoff, and princes are a game for him, he onto every fort will play, will gather dust and bind it.

11 Then he changed spirit and passed, and guilty: this is his strength, to his god. 12 For you are from the east, Yahweh, God of my holiness, we shall not die. Yahweh, for a judgement put him, and a rock to demonstrate his foundations.

13 Pure of eyes for seeing evil, to view ill-labor you will not be able: why view the traitors? You will deafen, when the wicked swallows one more just than he.

14 And you will make men, as the fish of the see, as the crawlers, nothing to govern him. 15 All, he lifted in a trap, the were caught in his net, he will gather them in his fishnet, for this he will become happy and rejoice. 16 For this he will sacrifice to his net, and will make offer to his fishnet, because in these his portion fattens, and he bulges with food. 17 So for this, he will empty his net, and keep killing nations, will not pity.

Chapter 2[edit]

1 On my watch I will stand guard, and I will post on the fortification, and I will watch to see what he will speak in me, and what will I reply on my reproof.

2 And Yahweh answered me and said "write a vision, clarify it on the boards, so that it will glide for the one that reads it." 3 Because this is still a vision of the event, and it foreshadows the end and it will not fail, if you procrastinate, wait for it, then come it will come, it won't be late. 4 See, fogged, dishonest, is his soul within him, and the upright in his faith will live.

5 And even as the wine betrays, a guy will be haughty and not foresee, that who widened his soul as the underworld, and he, like death, will not be sated, and will gather to him all the nations, and will cluster around him all the peoples. 6 For these, all of them, to him will carry up a proverb, and will challenge him with riddles: and he said "Woe to that who gathers much to him, until when, and him pledges weigh upon him". 7 For sudden, those that bite you will rise, those that overwhelm you will sting, and you would become plunder for them. 8 Because you are controlled by many nations, the cast off of all the other peoples, from man's blood and Earth's violence, the village and all that settle it.

9 Woe for him that enacts an evil act to his house: To place his nest on the heights, to escape from an evil palm. 10 You have advised shame to your house, the ends of many people, and your soul is sinning.

11 Because a stone from the wall will cry, and the timber from the tree will answer. 12 Woe to him that builds a city in blood, and readies a county in wrongdoing.

13 For here are from Yahweh armies, and they will touch peoples with fabric of fire, and nations with fabric of void, they tire. 14 Because the Earth will be filled to know the honor of Yahweh, as the water, and they will cover the sea.

15 Woe to him that gives his neighbor drinks, provides your wrath and even drunkenness, for viewing their naked skin. 16 You are filled with ridicule rather than honer, drink you also, and be poisoned. It shall return to you, the cup of the right-hand of Yahweh, and humiliation upon your honor. 17 Because the violence of Lebanon will cover you, the plunder of beasts supports them, from man's blood and Earth's violence, the village and all that settle it.

18 How is a statue useful? Because it's sculptor made it a mask, and a lying teacher: because the creator trusts his own creator over him to make idols dumb. 19 Woe to he who tells the wood, "Awake!", "Arise!" to the still stone. He will teach--- "Here it is wrapped in gold and silver." And there is no spirit within it. 20 And to Yahweh, in his holy temple, the whole Earth mutes.

Chapter 3[edit]

1 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet over Shigyonoth[1][2].

2 Yahweh, I heard what's heard of you: I feared. Yahweh, your works make live in the next years, inform in the next years, in hot temper, remember kindness.

3 A god from Teyman came, the holy from mount Pa'aran. Selah.[3] The chair of the skies they thanked, and his psalms filled the Earth.

4 And his glow as light will be, rays from his own hands, and there is his hidden strength.

5 Before him, the pox will go, and sparks will come from his feet.

6 He stood and measured the Earth, he saw and loosened the nations, the mountains of time exploded, the eternal heights of the world lowered down, the ways of all times to him.

7 Under a misery, I saw the tents of Chushan(Kushan); they will anger, the curtains of the land of Midyan(Midean).

8 Oh, is it in the rivers, Yahweh's distemper, even in the rivers your snarl, even in the sea, your wrath? Because you shall ride on your horses, your chariots, in salvation.

9 Your bow is bare skin, the rods are sworn is said. Selah. The rivers, you shall split the Earth.

10 The mountains shiver to see you, the stream of water passed, gave to the abyss its voice, to the heights carried his hands.

11 The sun, moon, stood rent, to half-light they will walk, to the glow of the lightning of your spear.

12 In fury, you will stride the earth, snarling, you will tread on the nations.

13 You came out the the salvation of your nation, to save your anointed (your Messiah), you pressed the head of a wicked house, denuding the foundations onto the neck. Selah.

14 You struck with his staff, the head of his chieftains, they will rush to scatter me, their fun is to consume a poor man in secret.

15 You stepped your horses on the sea, a mound of much water.

16 I heard, and my stomach upset, to a voice my lips tingled, a rot entered my bones, and under me, upset: so that I will rest on a troubled day, to rise up to the nation that opposes us.

17 because the fig will not bloom, and there is no harvest in the grapevines, denied is the olive-work, and the fields will not make food, the sheep will be stripped from the keep, and there is no cattle in the stalls.

18 And I in Yahweh will make joy, I will celebrate in my God, my salvation.

19 Yahweh, my lord, my soldier, and he will put my legs like does', and onto platforms will guide me, to the champion in my music-making.


  1. This might be the plural of Shiggayon in Psalms.
