  • but you do not listen?
  • Or cry out to you, "Violence!"
  • but you do not save?
  • Why do you make me look at injustice?
  • Why do you tolerate wrong?
  • Destruction and violence are before me;
  • there is strife, and conflict abounds.
  • Therefore the law is paralyzed,
  • and justice never prevails.
  • Habakkuk[2:4]
