Book of Habakkuk in Wikipedia
The Book of Habakkuk is the eighth book of the 12 minor
prophets of the Hebrew Bible. It is attributed to the
prophet Habakkuk, and was probably composed in the late 7th
century BCE. A copy of chapters 1 and 2 (of 3) is included in
the Habakkuk Commentary, found among the Dead Sea Scrolls.
Chapters 1-2 are a dialog between Yahweh and the prophet. The
central message, that "the just shall live by his faith"
(2:4), plays an important rule in Christian thought. It is
used in the Epistle to the Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11, and
the Epistle to the Hebrews 10:38 as the starting point of the
concept of faith. Chapter 3 may be an independent addition,
now recognized as a liturgical piece, but was possibly written
by the same author as chapters 1 and 2...
