In Answer to Habakkuk's second complaint about the "coming" of the "brutal Baylonians", God was equally enigmatic. Godinstructed the prophet:-
Write down clearly on tablets what I reveal to you, so that it can be read at a glance. Put it in writing, because it is not yet time for it to come true.
But the time is coming quickly, and what I show you will come true.
It may seem slow in coming, but wait for it; it will certainly take place, and it will not be delayed.
Coming quickly? Seems slow in coming? Wait! It will certainly happen! It will not be delayed.
But what? And why? And when?
