Book of Habakkuk

Written in Palestine about 679-648 B.C. The vindication of the holiness and justice of God. Habakkuk alone, of all the prophets, seemed more concerned about the character of God being vindicated than about Israel escaping punishment. The whole prophecy is a conversation between the prophet and God, opening with an appeal to Him to end injustice in the earth. God answers declaring that a terrible day of retribution is coming upon Judah from Babylon (Habakkuk 1:1-11). Habakkuk makes another appeal to God (Habakkuk 1:12-17), which is answered in the second chapter. It concerns more judgments to come. Habakkuk 3 is the prophet's prayer for Israel to be revived. The book's focus is to answer the prophet's questions and make it clear that unless Judah would conform to God's will they could only expect punishment and destruction as a nation.
