Only other appearance is Numbers 14 v 44 Verse Comments 1 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved. Habakkuk awaits God’s response, fully expecting to be “reproved” for his questions 2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. By knowing God’s purpose plainly those to whom it is revealed (i.e. the saints) are able to “run” 3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. The certainty of God’s word (and justice) is emphasised 4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. Only those justified by their own faith will ultimately “live”
