Habakkuk 2:1-2 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 2

I will stand at my guard post,
    and station myself upon the rampart;
I will keep watch to see what he will say to me,
    and what answer he will give to my complaint.

God’s Response

Then the Lord answered me and said:
    Write down the vision;[a]
Make it plain upon tablets,
    so that the one who reads it may run.

Footnotes:

  1. 2:2 Write down the vision: the vision is written down for two reasons: so that a herald may carry and proclaim its contents to the people, and so that the reception of the vision and its truth can be verified by its fulfillment (v. 3).
