    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:6

    Porque he aquí, yo levanto a los caldeos, gente amarga y presurosa, que camina por la anchura de la tierra para poseer las habitaciones ajenas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Habakkuk 1:6

    Verse 6. That
    bitter and hasty nation] Cruel and oppressive in their disposition; and prompt and speedy in their assaults and conquests.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans , etc.] A people still of late mean and low, famous only for their
    soothsaying, divination, and judicial astrology; but now become a powerful and warlike people, rising up under the permission of Providence to universal monarchy, and who would quickly add Judea to the rest of their dominions: [that] bitter and hasty nation ; a cruel and merciless people in their temper and disposition: “bitter” against the people of God and true religion, and causing bitterness, calamities, and distress, wherever they came: “hasty” and precipitate in their determinations; swift and nimble in their motions; active and vigorous in the prosecution of their designs: which shall march through the breadth of the land ; or “breadths of the land” f19 ; through the whole world, as they were attempting to do, having subdued Syria, all Asia, and great part of Africa, through which they boldly marched, bearing down all opposition that was in their way; or through the breadth of the land of Judea, taking all the fenced cities as they went along, and Jerusalem the metropolis of it; see ( Isaiah 8:7,8): to possess the dwellingplaces [that are] not theirs ; the cities of Judea, and houses in them, as well as the palaces and dwellingplaces in Jerusalem, which they had no right unto, but what they got by the sword; what were the legal possessions and inheritances of others from father to son for ages past, these the Chaldeans would dispossess them of; and not only take them, and the spoil and plunder of them, for the present, but retain them in their possession, as an inheritance to be transmitted to their posterity. This may have some respect to the length of the captivity of the Jews, and their land being in the hands of their enemies for the space of seventy years.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - The
    servants of the Lord are deeply afflicted by seeing ungodliness an violence prevail; especially among those who profess the truth. No ma scrupled doing wrong to his neighbour. We should long to remove to the world where holiness and love reign for ever, and no violence shall be before us. God has good reasons for his long-suffering towards bad men and the rebukes of good men. The day will come when the cry of sin wil be heard against those that do wrong, and the cry of prayer for thos that suffer wrong. They were to notice what was going forward among the heathen by the Chaldeans, and to consider themselves a nation to be scourged by them. But most men presume on continued prosperity, or tha calamities will not come in their days. They are a bitter and hast nation, fierce, cruel, and bearing down all before them. They shal overcome all that oppose them. But it is a great offence, and the common offence of proud people, to take glory to themselves. The closing words give a glimpse of comfort.
