Habakkuk 2

Here’s an odd but interesting scripture:

“Woe to him who dishonestly makes
wealth for his house
to place his nest on high,
to escape from the reach of disaster!
You have planned shame for your house
by wiping out many peoples
and sinning against your own self.
For the stones will cry out from the wall,
and the rafters will answer them
from the woodwork.” Habakkuk 2:9-11

The Stones will cry out? Does this sound like:
“Some of the Pharisees from the crowd told Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples. He answered, “I tell you, if they were to keep silent, the stones would cry out!”
Luke 19:39-40

I’m not sure if stones will actually speak, but they may have markings that testify and point out some truth as the stones of the great pyramid testify about God’s timeline. The church are referred to as living stones:
“Coming to Him [Jesus], a living stone—rejected by men but chosen and valuable to God— you yourselves, as living stones, are being built into a spiritual house for a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For it is contained in Scripture:

Look! I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and honored cornerstone,
and the one who believes in Him
will never be put to shame!” 1 Peter 2:4-6
