2:1–20 Habakkuk receives an answer to his painful questions of 1:12–17. God will show that He is just and the justifier of those who have faith in Him. The final outcome of history will be worship of the one holy and just King (v. 20). The destiny of nations and individuals alike will be determined by their attitude toward God as it has found expression in persevering and faithful dependence or haughty rejection (Ps. 1; 2:2, 3).
