Habakkuk ("The Embracing"), one of the Jewish minor prophets, the date of whose work is placed by Delitzsch, on grounds of internal evidence, in the 12th year of Josiah, or 630 B.C. Other commentators consider him to have lived in the reign of Jehoiakim, son of Josiah, at a later period in the 7th century.
