The Most Beautiful Words Ever Written & the Mischievous Woodchuck

“Although the fig tree shall  not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be  cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls” (18)  Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.” – Habakkuk 3:17-18


Every time I think about Daniel Webster (1782-1852), I’m reminded of the story about a woodchuck that helped himself to the vegetables in their father’s garden. Ezekiel Webster, Daniel’s brother, set a trap and caught the woodchuck, and said, “Now we’ll kill the thief. You’ve done mischief enough to die Mr. Woodchuck, and you shall die.”


Young Daniel Webster pleaded with his brother for the woodchuck’s immediate release. The case was brought before the father, who agreed to act as judge. Ezekiel presented the vicious habits of the prisoner, the damage already done to the garden, the value of his skin, and reasons why the woodchuck ought to die. Daniel pleaded that the woodchuck was  one of the creatures of God, not particularly vicious, having a right to food, life, and liberty. He urged against the cruelty of taking the life of the helpless creature. The plea moved the father, and he cried, “Zeke, Zeke, let the woodchuck go!”


This was Daniel Webster’s first case, won when he was only 10 years old. He would later grow up to become a lawyer, Senator and American statesman.


Daniel Webster used to meet with his friends regularly to discuss literature written throughout the ages. He once remarked to his friends that the words in Habakkuk 3:17-18, were the most beautiful words ever  written in literature; 


“Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail,  and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the  fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls. Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”


Read these words again. Only this time, insert your own name.


“Although MY fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold,  and there shall be no herd in the stalls. Yet I will rejoice in the  Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”


The Hebrew word used for “rejoice,” in verse 18 is alaz  (aw-laz’), which is interchangeable with the words, triumph &  joyful. The Lord wants us to rejoice in our adversity. When difficult trials and sufferings come it is very hard to rejoice and find triumph or joy in them. Today, if you find yourself in a place where nothing seems to be going well and you see no hope of relief, remember, Habakkuk 3:17-18 instructs us in times like these to do two things; (1) Rejoice in the Lord , (2) Joy in the God of your Salvation.


If you’re in a place where you need restoration in your life, seek the Lord for that restoration; that is what He does. He is the Restorer. He will deliver us in His chosen time.

Words to Think About

<>–On Religious Books –<>


“If religious books are not widely circulated among the masses in this country. I do not know what is going to become of us as a nation. If truth be not diffused, error will be; if God and His Word  are not known and received, the devil and his works will gain the ascendancy; if the evangelical volume does not reach every hamlet, the pages of a corrupt and licentious literature will; if the power of the  Gospel is not felt throughout the length and breadth of the land,  anarchy will reign without mitigation or end.”


– Daniel Webster (1782-1852) Lawyer and American statesman.


<>–On the Bible –<>


“If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our  country will go on prospering and to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how  sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound  \obscurity.” 


– Daniel Webster (1782-1852) Lawyer and American statesman.


<>–On Government –<>


“The proper function of a government is to make it easy for the people to do good, and difficult for them to do evil. ”
