Daily Word of God - Habakkuk 2:4-5

Habakkuk 2:4-5 New Living Translation (NLT)

4 “Look at the proud!
    They trust in themselves, and their lives are crooked.
    But the righteous will live by their faithfulness to God.[a]
5 Wealth[b] is treacherous,
    and the arrogant are never at rest.
They open their mouths as wide as the grave,[c]
    and like death, they are never satisfied.
In their greed they have gathered up many nations
    and swallowed many peoples.

2:3b-4 Greek version reads If the vision is delayed, wait patiently, / for it will surely come and not delay. / 4 I will take no pleasure in anyone who turns away. / But the righteous person will live by my faith. Compare Rom 1:17; Gal 3:11; Heb 10:37-38.
2:5a As in Dead Sea Scroll 1QpHab; other Hebrew manuscripts read Wine.
2:5b Hebrew as Sheol.
