Habakkuk’s final resting place is thought by some to be found in the city of Toyserkan (Western Iran), where an imposing conical mausoleum has been build to honor his memory. As noted in the Encyclopedia Iranica, “the tomb of Habaquq [Habakkuk] is sacred to both Jews and Muslims and many stories are told by locals about the miracles performed by this prophet for members of both communities.
Another claim for Habakkuk’s tomb is in Israel, northeast of the Sea of Galilee.
Habakkuk 1:1-4 (New King James Version)
The burden which the prophet Habakkuk saw.
O LORD, how long shall I cry,
And You will not hear?
Even cry out to You, “Violence!”
And You will not save.
Why do You show me iniquity,
And cause me to see trouble?
For plundering and violence are before me;
There is strife, and contention arises.
Therefore the law is powerless,
And justice never goes forth.
For the wicked surround the righteous;
Therefore perverse judgment proceeds.
O Lord, the nation of Israel is surrounded by enemies. Have mercy.
Habakkuk 3:3-4 (New King James Version)
God came from Teman,
The Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah
His glory covered the heavens,
And the earth was full of His praise.
His brightness was like the light;
He had rays flashing from His hand,
And there His power was hidden.
You are the morning star rising in the hearts of Your people across the Middle East from Israel to Iran.
Habakkuk 2:14 (New King James Version)
For the earth will be filled
With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD,
As the waters cover the sea.
No prophecy ever came by human will, but men and women moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. We stand in agreement with Habakkuk that the earth will be filled with the knowledge of Your glory, as the waters cover the sea. Amen.
