Habakkuk 2 is the second chapter of the Book of Habakkuk in the Hebrew Bible or the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. This book contains the prophecies spoken by the prophet Habakkuk, and is a part of the Book of the Twelve Minor Prophets. This chapter and the previous one form a unit, which Sweeney sees as "a report of a dialogue between the prophet and YHWH" about the fate of Judah which the biblical scholars, such as F. F. Bruce, label as "the oracle of Habakkuk".
- The original text is written in Hebrew.
Some most ancient manuscripts containing this chapter in Hebrew language:
- Masoretic Text
- Dead Sea Scrolls: 1QpHab, known as the "Habakkuk Commentary" (later half of the 1st century BC)
Ancient translations in Koine Greek:
- Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him:
- but the just shall live by his faith. (KJV)
- "But the just shall live by his faith" is translated from the Hebrew (in Masoretic Text) וצדיק באמונתו יחיה (Transliteration: we-tza-dik be-e-mo-na-to yeh-yeh). This part is quoted in three verses of the New Testament: Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11, and Hebrews 10:38-39.
- But the Lord is in his holy temple:
- let all the earth keep silence before him. (KJV)
- The Christian hymn "The Lord is in His Holy Temple", written in 1900 by William J. Kirkpatrick, is based on verse 2:20.
