Habakkuk lived just before the time Judah fell. As he realizes this, he can only cling to God for salvation. Habakkuk’s name means, “to embrace”. The Babylonian threat is imminent so the book must’ve been written between Josiah’s reign, 609 BC, and the final overthrow of Jerusalem in 586 BC. It was probably written during Jehoiakim’s reign. He was Jeremiah’s contemporary.
Habakkuk complains about God’s apparent lack of concern over Judah’s sin; God answers him. Then Habakkuk complains about God’s apparent lack of concern over the Babylonian cruelty. Again God answers him. Habakkuk the encourages believers to wait on and trust in the Lord.
