Habakkuk – a teaching — 1 Comment

  1. Luke 18:1-8

    Amplified Bible (AMP)

    18 Also [Jesus] told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not to [a]turn coward (faint, lose heart, and give up).

    2 He said, In a certain city there was a judge who neither reverenced and feared God nor respected or considered man.

    3 And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, Protect and defend and give me justice against my adversary.

    4 And for a time he would not; but later he said to himself, Though I have neither reverence or fear for God nor respect or consideration for man,

    5 Yet because this widow continues to bother me, I will defend and protect and avenge her, lest she give me [b]intolerable annoyance and wear me out by her continual coming or [c]at the last she come and rail on me or [d]assault me or [e]strangle me.

    6 Then the Lord said, Listen to what the unjust judge says!

    7 And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His elect (His chosen ones), who cry to Him day and night? Will He [f]defer them and [g]delay help on their behalf?

    8 I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [[h]persistence in] faith on the earth?
