2) God is just. Though He punishes a lesser wicked regime with a more wicked one (a point Habakkuk calls out the Lord for), the Lord will punish all oppression of His people. Justice will prevail!
3) The Lord is the only one to be worshiped. The Lord denounces idols and the worship of them quite explicitly in chapter 2 and declares He is the One who is to be worshiped (2:18-20).
"What profit is an idol?...Can this teach?...there is no breath in it. But the Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before him." Habakkuk 2:18-20
