Habakkuk 2 is the second chapter of the Book of Habakkuk in the Hebrew Bible or the Old Testament of the Christian Bible.[1][2] This book contains the prophecies spoken by the prophet Habakkuk, and is a part of the Book of the Twelve Minor Prophets.[3][4] 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[5] which the biblical scholars, such as F. F. Bruce, label as "the oracle of Habakkuk".[6]
