Woe to the Obstinate Nation

“Woe to the obstinate children,”    declares the Lord,“to those who carry out plans that are not mine,    forming an alliance, but not by my Spirit,    heaping sin upon sin;2 who go down to Egypt    without consulting me;who look for help to Pharaoh’s protection,    to Egypt’s shade for refuge.3 But Pharaoh’s protection will be to your shame,    Egypt’s shade will bring you disgrace.4 Though they have officials in Zoan    and their envoys have arrived in Hanes,5 everyone will be put to shame    because of a people useless to them,who bring neither help nor advantage,    but only shame and disgrace.” 6 A prophecy concerning the animals of the Negev: Through a land of hardship and distress,    of lions and lionesses,    of adders and darting snakes,the envoys carry their

Cry out for this nourishment, 3 now that you have had a taste of the Lord’s kindness. 4 You are coming to Christ, who is the living cornerstone of God’s temple.

Habakkuk’s Prayer

A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet. On shigionoth. 2 Lord, I have heard of your fame;    I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord.Repeat them in our day,    in our time make them known;    in wrath remember mercy. 3 God came from Teman,    the Holy One from Mount Paran.His glory covered the heavens    and his praise filled the earth.4 His splendor was like the sunrise;    rays flashed from his hand,    where his power was hidden.5 Plague went before him;    pestilence followed his steps.6 He stood, and shook the earth;    he looked, and made the nations tremble.The ancient mountains crumbled    and the age-old hills collapsed—    but he marches on forever.7 I saw the tents of Cushan in distress,    the dwellings of Midian in anguish. 8 Were you angry with the
