“Then the Lord answered me and said, “Write a vision, and make it plain upon a tablet
so that a runner can read it. There is still a vision for the appointed time; it testifies to
the end; it does not deceive. If it delays, wait for it; for it is surely coming; it will not be
late. Some people’s desires are truly audacious; they don’t do the right thing. But the
righteous person will live honestly.” Habakkuk 2:2-4
