Habakkuk 2

1 I will stand on my guard·​·duty, and stand·​·forth upon the battlement, and will watch to see what He will speak to me, and what I shall return according·​·to my reproof.

2 And Jehovah answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make· it ·plain on tablets, so·​·that he may run who reads it.

3 For the vision is still for an appointed·​·time, but at the end it shall speak·​·out, and not lie; though it linger, tarry for it; for coming it will come; it will not delay.

4 Behold, his soul which seeks·​·the·​·summit is· not ·upright within him; but the just shall live in his faithfulness.

5 And indeed, because the wine is treacherous, the mighty·​·man is arrogant; and he does not have·​·a·​·home, who enlarges his soul as hell; and he is as death, and will not be·​·satisfied, but gathers to him all the nations, and brings·​·together to him all the peoples.

6 Shall not all of these take·​·up a proverb against him, and a scornful enigma for him, and say, Woe to him who multiplies what is not his—how long? And to* him who makes· thick·​·mud ·heavy on himself!

7 Shall they not rise·​·up suddenly who shall bite thee, and awake who shall cause· thee ·turmoil? And thou shalt be for pillaging for them.

8 Because thou hast spoiled many nations, all the remnant of the peoples shall spoil thee; from the bloods* of man, and the violence of the land, of the city, and of all who dwell in her.

9 Woe to him who gains an evil gain for his house, that he may set his nest on high, that he may be rescued from the palm of the hand of evil!

10 Thou hast counseled shame to thy house by scraping·​·off many peoples, and thou hast sinned against thy soul.

11 For the stone shall cry out from the wall, and the timber from the wood shall answer.

12 Woe to him who builds a city by bloods, and establishes a walled·​·city by perversity!

13 Behold, is it not from Jehovah of Armies that the peoples shall toil in so·​·much fire, and the nations shall faint in so·​·much emptiness?

14 For the earth shall·​·be·​·filled with knowing the glory of Jehovah, as the waters cover over the sea.

15 Woe to him who makes· his companion ·drink, thou who attachest thy bottle to him and makest· him ·drunken also, so·​·that thou mayest look on their nakedness!*

16 Thou art satisfied with disgrace rather than glory; drink thou also, that thy foreskin may be revealed; the cup of the right·​·hand of Jehovah shall be turned·​·around on thee, that disgraceful vomit shall be on thy glory*.

17 For the violence done to Lebanon shall cover thee, and the devastation of beasts which dismayed them, because of the bloods of man, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all who dwell in her.

18 What profit is the graven image that he who forms it has graven it, the molten image, and an instructor of falsity, that he who forms what is formed trusts on it, to make vain·​·gods, which are dumb?

19 Woe to him who says to the wood, Awake! To the silent stone, Stir·​·up! It shall instruct! Behold, it is laid over with gold and silver, and there is no spirit at all in the midst of it.

20 But Jehovah is in the temple of His holiness; keep·​·silent before Him, all the earth.



Exploring the Meaning of Habakkuk 2      

Napsal(a) Rev. George McCurdy

Israel’s disregard for spiritual things necessitated the Lord’s coming. The Lord spoke through Habakkuk to tell the Jewish Church what kind of battle would take place with His advent.

The Lord spoke about spiritual issues from what other nations saw. In reality, the other nations represented how distanced the Jewish Church had become from Him. The love of self was growing. Alongside of this growth, the people of the church were growing vile. Other nations (the Lord) noted these changes, and it caused them to hold Israel in contempt.

What did the other nations see? They saw Israel’s pride puffing up their own intelligence. The other nations saw that the church judged from externals alone. They noted that Israel was hatching doctrine out of falsities.

When the Lord comes, He tells the church that those who lead others astray will be made ashamed. The Lord tells them that the self-serving falsities will profit the evil nothing. What will last to eternity? The Divine Human.
