Book of Habakkuk

Habakkuk 1-3

What can you say about Habakkuk that hasn't already been said?
Here are some personal highlights;

2:7 Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee...

Biblical Raunch!
2:15 Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness!

2:16 Thou art filled with shame for glory: drink thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered: the cup of the LORD's right hand shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewing shall be on thy glory.

Chapter 3 lets us know that even though God may be violent and vengeful, Habakkuk has faith that the LORD will eventually become kind and gentle.

Fig trees once again get picked on.  Doesn't Jesus kill a fig tree also?

  1. I'm still playing catch up and I consider myself a sorta well informed atheist, but I had NO idea these books even existed. Habakkuk? Nahum? Haggai? If I hadn't looked them up myself I would have sworn you were making up names to see if anyone was paying attention!
