Chapter By Chapter

Habakkuk’s ask God two questions, he’s been praying a long time and he thinks God doesn’t hear him. To him it looks as though God is inactive.

He seems to be looking at things from a human perspective and he seems to expect a human reaction from God. Habakkuk 1

Habakkuk has learned to be patient, as he awaits God’s response to his question in regard to God’s using an unholy nation like Babylon to discipline His own people.

We have to admire Habakkuk’s honesty with God, He simply couldn’t understand why God allowed His own people to suffer. Habakkuk 2

In this final chapter we read Habakkuk’s prayer in the form of a song. It’s taken some time, but he finally understands, as much as humanly possible that God is actually working in and amongst the nations for the benefit of His own people.

In his prayer he basically asks God to go ahead and do what needs to be done. Habakkuk 3


"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.'"
