The prophet. His name is derived from Chabak, signifying, one that embraceth. Of his descent and family the Holy Ghost is silent. His prophetical writings are truly scriptural, and are contained in three chapters, which we have in our Bibles. They carry evident marks with them of divine inspiration. The apostle Paul makes a quotation from Habakkuk 2:4. (See Hebrews 10:38) Some have endeavoured to soften the story, by supposing the dinner Habakkuk is said to have carried Daniel was his writings, particularly that passage in them where it is said, "The just shall live by his faith." But this is rather giving countenance to a story that ought to be refuted, and by no means admissible. The very Jews themselves deny the tale.
