Habakkuk 2:1-2 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Habakkuk Waits for God’s Response

I will stand at my guard post
and station myself on the lookout tower.
I will watch to see what he will say to me
and what I should[a] reply about my complaint.

God’s Second Answer

The Lord answered me:

Write down this vision;
clearly inscribe it on tablets
so one may easily read it.[b]
