Habakkuk 3

God’s Deliverance of His People

A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, according to
I.e. a highly emotional poetic form
 Lord, I have b heard
Or Your report
the report about You and
Or I stand in awe of Your work, O  Lord ; In the midst of the years revive it,
I e fear.
O  Lord f revive g Your work in the midst of the years,
In the midst of the years make it known;
In wrath remember
Or compassion
i mercy.

God comes from j Teman,
And the Holy One from Mount k Paran. Selah.
His l splendor covers the heavens,
And the m earth is full of His praise.
His n radiance is like the sunlight;
He has rays flashing from His hand,
And there is the hiding of His o power.
Before Him goes p pestilence,
And q plague comes
Lit at His feet
after Him.
He stood and surveyed the earth;
He looked and s startled the nations.
Yes, the perpetual mountains were shattered,
The ancient hills
Lit bowed; or sank down
His ways are u everlasting.
I saw the tents of Cushan under v distress,
The tent curtains of the land of w Midian were trembling.

Did the  Lord rage against the x rivers,
Or was Your anger against the rivers,
Or was Your wrath against the y sea,
That You z rode on Your horses,
On Your aa chariots of salvation?
Your ab bow was made bare,
The rods of
Lit word
chastisement were sworn. Selah.
You ad cleaved the earth with rivers.
10 The mountains saw You and quaked;
The downpour of waters swept by.
The deep ae uttered forth its voice,
It lifted high its hands.
11  af Sun and moon stood in their places;
They went away at the ag light of Your arrows,
At the radiance of Your gleaming spear.
12 In indignation You ah marched through the earth;
In anger You
Or thresh
aj trampled the nations.
13 You went forth for the ak salvation of Your people,
For the salvation of Your al anointed.
You struck the am head of the house of the evil
To lay him open from
Lit foundation
thigh to neck. Selah.
14 You pierced with his ao own
Lit shafts
The head of his
Or warriors or villagers
They ar stormed in to scatter
Lit me
Their exultation was like those
Who at devour the oppressed in secret.
15 You au trampled on the sea with Your horses,
On the av surge of many waters.

16 I heard and my
Lit belly
inward parts ax trembled,
At the sound my lips quivered.
Decay enters my ay bones,
And in my place I tremble.
Because I must az wait quietly for the day of distress,
Or To come upon the people who will
For the bb people to arise who will invade us.
17 Though the bc fig tree should not blossom
And there be no
Lit produce
fruit on the vines,
Though the yield of the be olive should fail
And the fields produce no food,
Though the bf flock should be cut off from the fold
And there be bg no cattle in the stalls,
18 Yet I will bh exult in the  Lord,
I will bi rejoice in the bj God of my salvation.
19 The Lord
Heb YHWH, usually rendered  Lord
 God is my bl strength,
And bm He has made my feet like hinds’ feet,
And makes me walk on my bn high places.
For the choir director, on my stringed instruments.
