Habakkuk 2:9-14


9 ‘Alas for you who get evil gain for your houses,
   setting your nest on high
   to be safe from the reach of harm!’
10 You have devised shame for your house
   by cutting off many peoples;
   you have forfeited your life.
11 The very stones will cry out from the wall,
   and the plaster* will respond from the woodwork.


12 ‘Alas for you who build a town by bloodshed,
   and found a city on iniquity!’
13 Is it not from the Lord of hosts
   that peoples labour only to feed the flames,
   and nations weary themselves for nothing?
14 But the earth will be filled
   with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
   as the waters cover the sea.
