Habakkuk (hab-băk'kuk or hăb'ak-kŭk), embrace. One of the twelve minor prophets. He lived in the reign of Jehoiakim or of Josiah. His prophecy relates chiefly to the invasion of Judæa by the Chaldæans, chap. 1, and the subsequent punishment of the Chaldæans themselves, chap. 2. The passage, 2:4, "the just shall live by his faith," furnished to Paul the text for his Epistle to the Romans. Romans 1:17; comp. Galatians 3:11. The third chapter is an eloquent and sublime psalm upon the majesty of God. Bishop Lowth says, "This anthem is unequalled in majesty and splendor of language and imagery."
