Habakkuk 2:2,3: "Then the LORD answered me and said: "Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; but at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."' The command to write the revelation is unusual. Generally prophets spoke the word of the Lord first. ' He may run who reads it' Messengers would proclaim the divine oracle. 'An appointed time' speaks of a determined time in God's eyes. "though it tarries wait for it' God knows His plan and the outworking of all things in accordance with His purposes. The godly are responsible to study and proclaim His revelation while awaiting its fulfillment. The fulfillment of the vision would not take any longer than God had planned.
