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.

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.
