1:1 The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see.
1:5 Behold ye among the heathen, and regard, and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
burden See note 1, (See Scofield "Isaiah 13:1") .
for I will work
Verse 5 anticipates the dispersion "among the nations" (cf) Deuteronomy 28:64-67. While Israel as a nation is thus dispersed, Jehovah will "work a work" which Israel "will not believe." Acts 13:37-41, interprets this prediction of the redemptive work of Christ. It is significant that Paul quotes this to Jews of the dispersion in the synagogue at Antioch.
