Habakkuk 2:14 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For the earth shall be filled - This is a singular and important verse. It may be first applied to Babylon. God's power and providence shall be widely displayed in the destruction of this city and empire, in the humiliation of Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel 4:37, and in the captivity and restoration of his people. See Newcome, and see Isaiah 11:9.
Secondly. It may be applied to the glorious days of the Messiah. The land of Judea should by his preaching, and that of his disciples, be filled with the knowledge of God. God's great design fully discovered, and the scheme of salvation amply explained.

The earth cannot perish till every continent, island, and inhabitant, is illuminated with the light of the Gospel.

Letter vi (Circa A. D. 1127) to the Same
Nevertheless, as surely as I live and as surely as the glory of the LORD fills the whole earth,
All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him,
They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
And the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the LORD has spoken."
No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, 'Know the LORD,' because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest," declares the LORD. "For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."
He measured off another thousand, but now it was a river that I could not cross, because the water had risen and was deep enough to swim in--a river that no one could cross.
You drive the women of my people from their pleasant homes. You take away my blessing from their children forever.
