God’s Word had meaning for he people of Judah. It seems it also has meaning for us today
Chaldeans Used to Punish Judah
1 The oracle which Habakkuk the prophet saw. 2 How long, O LORD, will I call for help, And You will not hear? I cry out to You, “Violence!” Yet You do not save. 3 Why do You make me see iniquity, And cause me to look on wickedness? Yes, destruction and violence are before me; Strife exists and contention arises. 4 Therefore the law is ignored And justice is never upheld. For the wicked surround the righteous; Therefore justice comes out perverted. 5 “Look among the nations! Observe! Be astonished! Wonder! Because I am doing something in your days – You would not believe if you were told. 6 “For behold, I am raising up the Chaldeans, That fierce and impetuous people Who march throughout the earth To seize dwelling places which are not theirs. 7 “They are dreaded and feared; Their justice and authority originate with themselves. ….11 “Then they will sweep through like the wind and pass on. But they will be held guilty, They whose strength is their god.” 12…..You, O LORD, have appointed them to judge; And You, O Rock, have established them to correct.
