English[edit]

Proper noun[edit]

Habacuc

  1. (rare) Alternative form of Habakkuk.
    • 1910, Francis E. Gigot, "Habacuc", in The Catholic Encyclopedia, volume 7, page 98
      The fact that in his book he is twice called "the prophet" (i, 1; iii, 1) leads indeed one to surmise that Habacuc held a recognized position as prophet []

Usage notes[edit]

The spelling Habacuc is the one used in the Douay–Rheims Bible, an official translation of the Roman Catholic Vulgate into English that was completed in 1610. Most other English translations use the spelling Habakkuk. Consequently, the spelling Habacuc is largely restricted to Roman Catholic writings.
