    King James Bible - Habakkuk 1:13

    Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously, and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?

    World English Bible

    You who have purer
    eyes than to see evil, and who cannot look on perversity, why do you tolerate those who deal treacherously, and keep silent when the wicked swallows up the man who is more righteous than he,

    Douay-Rheims - Habakkuk 1:13

    Thy
    eyes are too pure to behold evil, and thou canst not look on iniquity. Why lookest thou upon them that do unjust things, and holdest thy peace when the wicked devoureth the man that is more just than himself?

    Webster's Bible Translation

    Thou
    art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: why lookest thou on them that deal treacherously, and keepest silence when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous than he?

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:13

    Limpio eres de ojos para no ver el mal, ni puedes ver el agravio; ¿por qué ves a los menospreciadores, y callas cuando destruye el impío al más justo que él.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Habakkuk 1:13

    Verse 13. Thou
    art of purer eyes] Seeing thou art so pure, and canst not look on iniquity-it is so abominable-how canst thou bear with them who "deal treacherously, and hold thy tongue when the wicked devour the righteous?" All such questions are easily solved by a consideration of God's ineffable mercy, which leads him to suffer long and be kind. He has no pleasure in the death of a sinner.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. [Thou
    art] of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look upon iniquity , etc.] The Lord with his eyes of omniscience beholds all things good and evil, and all men good and bad, with all their actions; but then he does not look upon the sins of men with pleasure and approbation; since they are contrary to his nature, repugnant to his will, and breaches of his righteous law: and though sin in general may be included here, yet there seems to be a particular respect had to the “evil” or injury done by the Chaldeans to the Jews, in invading their land, spoiling their substance, and slaying their persons; and to the “iniquity”, labour, or grievance, by which may be meant the oppression and violence the same people exercised upon the inhabitants of Judea; which, though permitted by the Lord, could not be well pleasing in his sight. The Targum interprets it of persons, workers of evil, and workers of the labour of falsehood; (see Psalm 5:4,5): wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously ; the Chaldeans, who dealt treacherously with God, by worshipping idols; and with the Jews, pretending to be their good friends and allies, when they meditated their ruin and destruction; and yet the Lord in his providence seemed to look favourably on these perfidious persons, since they succeeded in all their enterprises: this was stumbling to the prophet, and all good men; and they knew not how, or at least found great difficulty, to reconcile this to the purity and holiness of God, and to his justice and faithfulness; (see Jeremiah 12:1,2): and holdest thy tongue when the wicked devoureth [the man that is] more righteous than he ? the comparison does not lie so much personally between Nebuchadnezzar and Zedekiah the last king of the Jews, whose eyes the king of Babylon put out, and whom he used in a cruel manner; who was, no doubt, comparatively speaking, a more righteous person than the Chaldean monarch was; being not the worst of the kings of Judea, and whose name has the signification of righteousness in it: but rather between the Chaldeans and the Jews; who, though there were many wicked persons among them, yet there were some truly righteous, who fell in the common calamity; and, as to the bulk of them, were a more righteous people, at the worst, than their enemies were, who devoured them, destroyed many with the sword, plundered them of their substance, and carried them captive; and the Lord was silent all this while, said nothing in his providence against them, put no stop to their proceedings; and by his silence seemed to approve of, at least to connive at, what they did; and this the prophet in the name of good men reasons with the Lord about.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-17 - However matters may be, yet
    God is the Lord our God, our Holy One. We are an offending people, he is an offended God, yet we will no entertain hard thoughts of him, or of his service. It is great comfor that, whatever mischief men design, the Lord designs good, and we ar sure that his counsel shall stand. Though wickedness may prosper while, yet God is holy, and does not approve the wickedness. As he cannot do iniquity himself, so he is of purer eyes than to behold i with any approval. By this principle we must abide, though the dispensations of his providence may for a time, in some cases, seem to us not to agree with it. The prophet complains that God's patience wa abused; and because sentence against these evil works and workers wa not executed speedily, their hearts were the more fully set in them to do evil. Some they take up as with the angle, one by one; others the catch in shoals, as in their net, and gather them in their drag, their enclosing net. They admire their own cleverness and contrivance: ther is great proneness in us to take the glory of outward prosperity to ourselves. This is idolizing ourselves, sacrificing to the drag-ne because it is our own. God will soon end successful and splendi robberies. Death and judgment shall make men cease to prey on others and they shall be preyed on themselves. Let us remember, whateve advantages we possess, we must give all the glory to God __________________________________________________________________
