Habakkuk 2:1-2

Context

2:1 I will stand at my watch post;

I will remain stationed on the city wall. 1 

I will keep watching, so I can see what he says to me

and can know 2  how I should answer

when he counters my argument. 3 

The Lord Assures Habakkuk

2:2 The Lord responded: 4 

“Write down this message! 5  Record it legibly on tablets,

so the one who announces 6  it may read it easily. 7 

1 sn Habakkuk compares himself to a watchman stationed on the city wall who keeps his eyes open for approaching messengers or danger.

2 tn The word “know” is supplied in the translation for clarification.

3 tn Heb “concerning my correction [or, “reproof”].”

4 tn Heb “the Lord answered and said.” The redundant expression “answered and said” has been simplified in the translation as “responded.”

5 tn Heb “[the] vision.”

6 tn Or “reads from.”

7 tn Heb “might run,” which here probably means “run [through it quickly with one’s eyes],” that is, read it easily.
