The response of Yahweh (Hab 2:2-2:3)

“Yahweh answered me.

He said.

‘Write the vision!

Make it plain

On tablets!

Thus,

A runner

May read it.

There is still a vision

For the appointed time.

It speaks of the end.

It does not lie.

If it seems slow,

Wait for it!

It will surely come.

It will not delay.’”

Yahweh did answer Habakkuk.  He told him to write down the vision on a plain tablet, so that a runner or messenger could read it.  This vision had a specific time for the end times that would not lie.  It might seem slow, but Habakkuk was to wait for it, because it would surely come without any great delay.

The present battle and the future (Dan 10:13-10:14)

“The prince

Of the kingdom

Of Persia

Opposed me

For twenty-one days.

Then,

Michael,

One of the chief princes,

Came to help me.

I left him there

With the prince

Of the kingdom

Of Persia.

I have come

To help you understand

What is to happen

To your people

At the end of the days.

There is a further vision

For those days.”

Somehow or other this man or angel Gabriel got involved in a conflict with the King of Persia for 21 days. However, the good angel Michael, one of the chief princes or archangels, came to help him against this prince of Persia. This man or angel Gabriel then came to help Daniel understand what was going to happen to his people in the future, at the end of days.
