  1. Dis na di message wey Habakkuk di prophet receive wit vision.
  2. Chai Baba-God, how long I go dey call for epp? But you no gree listen!—I even cry out becos of di oppression, and you no gree save pesin!
  3. Why you dey show me all dis bad-bad-tins?—con dey make me see palava? Scata-scata and fight-fight dey for my front; wahala dey, and katakata no dey finish.
  4. So di law no strong again and e dey useless, and justice no dey again. Evil pipo dey do ojoro for pipo wey get clean-hand, and dem dey bend justice.

Baba-God Ansa

6. I dey raise up di pipo of Babylon, those wicked pipo wey no dey rest. Dem dey march enta di whole earth to seize land wey no be dia own.

7. Dem be wicked pipo, and pipo dey fear dem; dem be law for demsef and dem dey do anytin wey dem like.

8. Dia horses fast pass leopards, con wicked pass di night wolves. Dia sojas dey come from far-far land; dia horse-riders go spread demsef. Dem dey come wit speed like eagle wey dey rush go catch e food.

9. All of dem dey come just becos of fight-fight. Dem plenty wey dey come like strong-breeze for desert, and dem dey gada prisoners like sand-sand.
