An Old Testament prophet in Judah who spoke of the sinfulness of the people possibly during the reign of Jehoiachin (about 600 B.C.).

The book of Habakkuk

Chapter 1 is a discussion between the Lord and His prophet, similar to those in Jeremiah 12 and Doctrine and Covenants 121. Habakkuk was troubled that the wicked seem to prosper. In chapter 2 the Lord counseled Habakkuk to be patient—the just must learn to live by faith. Chapter 3 records Habakkuk’s prayer in which he acknowledged God’s justice.
