Well, What about Babylon?
Habakkuk is learning to “pray yet.” He actually has a legitimate question about Babylon. It’s not as if Babylon doesn’t matter, because she does. So in the Lord’s second response to Habakkuk’s second complaint God tells both the “what of” and the “what for” regarding Babylon. God is going to give Habakkuk a bit of an excursus on Babylon. (1-5, 6-15)
