A description of Chaldean (Babylonian) army is given. They are invincible, ruthless. Army is compared to three predators: leopard, wolf, and eagle. All bring violent death to their prey. Violence has become a way of life for them. Yet, they are guilty men, whose strength is their god. God will allow them to flourish for a while, but they will become intoxicated by their own power. Then God will intervene. God’s response is not exactly what Habakkuk hoped to hear.
