Chapter 1 investigates the interpretation of Hab 2:3–4 in early Judaism on the evidence of the Septuagint and Qumran. The Septuagint and Qumran may provide evidence for an eschatological-forensic tradition of interpretation.Chapter 2 traces the possible eschatologicalforensic interpretation of Hab 2:3–4 into Hebrews. A proposal for the unique rendering of Hab 2:4 in Heb 10:38 is made, which relates that rendering to the theme of confession in Heb 10:19– 12:3. The possibility is raised of a confessional Sitz im Leben for the use of Hab 2:4 in early Christianity. Chapter 3 relates the use of Hab 2:4 in Rom 1:16–17 to justification by faith without works of the Law by way of the confessional material in Rom 10:9–13 and Paul’s exposition of that theme in 3:21–26. Chapter 4 investigates the logic of Gal 3:10–14 and the crucial role that Hab 2:4 plays there.
