‘“Woe to him who piles up stolen goods
and makes himself wealthy by extortion!
How long must this go on?”
Will not your creditors suddenly arise?
Will they not wake up and make you tremble?
Then you will become their prey.
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.
‘Woe to him who builds his house by unjust gain,
setting his nest on high
to escape the clutches of ruin!
You have plotted the ruin of many peoples,
shaming your own house and forfeiting your life.
The stones of the wall will cry out,
and the beams of the woodwork will echo it.
– Habakkuk 2:6-11 (NIV) – Habakkuk 2:6-11 (NIV)
Our Father’s earthly creation spoiled, crumbled
Rescue mission planned and Spirit-enabled
Salvation pathway for each son and daughter
Son of Man’s human form bound, briefly humbled
Broken bread, blood-red wine from Father’s table
Direction truth writ in Spirit-prompted word
Father’s world, Son-sustained, Spiritual water
Three strands combined, strength as One: eternal cord
Quite a challenge for today’s contribution to Day 14 of Na/GloPoWriMo2016 – the ‘san san’ format repeats, three times, each of three terms or images. The eight lines rhyme in the pattern a-b-c-a-b-d-c-d.
