Consequences for Injustice

International Sunday School Spring #3 March 15, 2020

Habakkuk 2:6-14 (NIV) [6] “Will not all of them taunt him with ridicule and scorn, saying, “ ‘Woe to him who piles up stolen goods and makes himself wealthy by extortion! How long must this go on?’ [7] Will not your creditors suddenly arise? Will they not wake up and make you tremble? Then you will become their prey. [8] Because you have plundered many nations, the peoples who are left will plunder you. For you have shed human blood; you have destroyed lands and cities and everyone in them. [9] “Woe to him who builds his house by unjust gain, setting his nest on high to escape the clutches of ruin! [10] You have plotted the ruin of many peoples, shaming your own house and forfeiting your life. [11] The stones of the wall will cry out, and the beams of the woodwork will echo it. [12] “Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed and establishes a town by injustice! [13] Has not the LORD Almighty determined that the people’s labor is only fuel for the fire, that the nations exhaust themselves for nothing? [14] For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
