Habakkuk 1

Wait for It

1 The oracle that the prophet Habakkuk saw. 2 O LORD, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not listen? Or cry to you "Violence!" and you will not save? 3 Why do you make me see wrongdoing and look at trouble? Destruction and violence are before me; strife and contention arise. [...] 2:1 I will stand at my watchpost, and station myself on the rampart; I will keep watch to see what he will say to me, and what he will answer concerning my complaint. 2 Then the LORD answered me and said: Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so that a runner may read it. 3 For there is still a vision for the appointed time; it speaks of the end, and does not lie. If it seems to tarry, wait for it; it will surely come, it will not delay. 4 Look at the proud! Their spirit is not right in them, but the righteous live by their faith.

Musings

Chapter 1 poses the question (whiney though it is) to which Chapter 2 provides the answer (the righteous live by their faith). For some reason verse 2:4 was singled out by the Apostle Paul as support for his doctrine of justification by faith, and highly regarded by some Jewish scholars as embodying the entire law (all 613). Personally I just don't see it as all that compelling, but I wasn't consulted.
