the vision And inscribe it on tablets, that the one who reads it may run. For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay. Behold,
as for the proud one, His soul is not right within him; But the righteous will live by his faith'".... Habakkuk 2:2-4 NASB
