    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:2

    ¿Hasta cuándo, oh SEÑOR, clamaré, y no oirás; y daré voces a ti a causa de la violencia, y no salvarás?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Habakkuk 1:2

    Verse 2. O
    Lord, how long shall I cry] The prophet feels himself strongly excited against the vices which he beheld; and which, it appears from this verse, he had often declaimed against, but in vain; the people continued in their vices, and God in his longsuffering.

    Habakkuk begins his prophecy under a similar feeling, and nearly in similar words, as Juvenal did his Satires:- Semper ego auditor tantum? Nunquamne reponam? Vexatus toties rauci Theseide Codri? Sat. i. 1.

    "Shall I always be a hearer only? Shall I never reply? So often vexed?" Of violence] The most unlawful and outrageous acts.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. O Lord, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear ! etc.] The prophet having long observed the sins and iniquities of the people among whom he lived, and being greatly distressed in his mind on account of them, had frequently and importunately cried unto the Lord to put a stop to the abounding of them, that the people might be brought to a sense of their sins, and reform from them; but nothing of this kind appearing, he concludes his prayers were not heard, and therefore expostulates with the Lord upon this head: [even] cry unto thee [of] violence, and thou wilt not save ! either of violence done to himself in the discharge of his office, or of one man to another, of the rich to the poor; and yet, though he cried again and again to the Lord, to check this growing evil, and deliver the oppressed out of the hands of their oppressors, it was not done; which was matter of grief and trouble to him.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - The
    servants of the Lord are deeply afflicted by seeing ungodliness an violence prevail; especially among those who profess the truth. No ma scrupled doing wrong to his neighbour. We should long to remove to the world where holiness and love reign for ever, and no violence shall be before us. God has good reasons for his long-suffering towards bad men and the rebukes of good men. The day will come when the cry of sin wil be heard against those that do wrong, and the cry of prayer for thos that suffer wrong. They were to notice what was going forward among the heathen by the Chaldeans, and to consider themselves a nation to be scourged by them. But most men presume on continued prosperity, or tha calamities will not come in their days. They are a bitter and hast nation, fierce, cruel, and bearing down all before them. They shal overcome all that oppose them. But it is a great offence, and the common offence of proud people, to take glory to themselves. The closing words give a glimpse of comfort.
