Habakkuk 1‑3
Deeply exercised over God’s silence as to the iniquitous state of Judah, the prophet pronounces their punishment by the proud and fierce Chaldean, whom God will yet judge. Habakkuk represents a waiting godly remnant. Faith trusts and waits God’s deliverance, come what will, which is the theme of “the Psalm” of the last chapter. Chapter 2:4 is quoted three times by Paul.
B.C. 626.
