Summary of the Book of Habakkuk
Author: Habakkuk 1:1 identifies the Book of Habakkuk as an oracle from the prophet Habakkuk.
Date of Writing: The Book of Habakkuk was likely written between 610 and 605 BC.
Purpose of Writing: The prophet Habakkuk decries the sins of Judah but grapples with the fact that God’s chosen people will suffer at the hands of enemies even more wicked than they. God answers Habakkuk’s questions, resulting in continuing faith in God’s wisdom, sovereignty, and salvation.
Habakkuk 1:2, “How long, Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen? Or cry out to you, ‘Violence!’ but you do not save?”
Habakkuk 1:5, “Look at the nations and watch—and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.”
Habakkuk 1:12, “Are you not from everlasting, O Lord my God, my Holy One? We shall not die” (ESV).
Habakkuk 2:2–4, “Then the Lord answered me and said: ‘Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith’” (NKJV).
Habakkuk 2:20, “The Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth be silent before him.”
Habakkuk 3:2, “Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.”
