Habakkuk Chapter 1

Habakkuk 1:1

hab 1:1


See note 1,

(See Scofield) - (Isa 13:1).

Habakkuk 1:5

hab 1:5

for I will work

Verse 5 (Hab 1:5) anticipates the dispersion "among the nations".

Compare (Deu 28:64-67).

While Israel as a nation is thus dispersed, Jehovah will "work a work" which Israel "will not believe." (Act 13:37-41); interprets this prediction of the redemptive work of Christ. It is significant that Paul quotes this to Jews of the dispersion in the synagogue at Antioch.
