One of the minor prophets. Of his life we know nothing, except that he appears to have been contemporary with Jeremiah, and to have prophesied about 610 B.C., shortly before Nebuchadnezzar's first invasion of Judea, 2 Kings 24:1 .

The BOOK OF HABAKKUK consists of three chapters, which all constitute on oracle. In Habakkuk 1:1-17 , he foretells the woes which the rapacious and terrible Chaldeans would soon inflict upon his guilty nation. In Habakkuk 2:1-20 , he predicts the future humiliation of the conquerors. Habakkuk 3:1-19 is a sublime and beautiful ode, in which the prophet implores the succor of Jehovah in view of his mighty works of ancient days, and expresses the most assured trust in him. Nothing, even in Hebrew poetry, is more lofty and grand then this triumphal ode.
