Write down the revelation
In chapter 2 God gave Habakkuk an answer to his questions about why evil seemed to dominate (control) the world and if it could be allowed to wipe out those who do what is good and right. The Lord revealed that a time was coming when all the wicked would be destroyed and the only people not shaken would be those who trust God and do what is right by His standards. Such people are related, or connected, to God by their faith (Verse 4).
AWAITS AN APPOINTED TIME
The final solution to Habakkuk’s dilemma would come only in the future, at God’s “appointed time.”
THE RIGHTEOUS WILL LIVE BY HIS FAITH
In light of God’s revelation about how (and when) He is working, His people are to be patient and live by faith.
WOE TO HIM
These versus represent a “taunt,” or statement of ridicule, that will be used one day by Babylon’s enemies. So certain is the doom of Babylon that Habakkuk is assured that future victims will be able to say these same words. This two-part taunt brakes down further into a series of five woes (pronouncements of sorrow or consequences for ungodly actions) describing the judgment that would come on all those whose “desires are not upright” (Verse 4). Such people will be punished because of their aggression (Verse 6-8), violence and crime (Verse 12-14), immorality (Verse 15-17) and idolatry (Verse 18-20). All the stolen goods and forced labor that Babylon used to build its empire will finally “cry out” against it (Verse 11-12). The Lord will shame Babylon and do to that nation what it did to others (Verse 16). The future destruction of this once proud and mighty nation will bring even greater glory and honor to God, whose great power will become known throughout the world (Verse 15).
