Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Habakkuk 2:11

_ _ stone ... cry out — personification. The very stones of thy palace built by rapine shall testify against thee (Luke 19:40).

_ _ the beam out of the timber — the crossbeam or main rafter connecting the timbers in the walls.

_ _ shall answer it — namely, the stone. The stone shall begin and the crossbeam continue the cry against thy rapine.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Habakkuk 2:5-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
