For the coming up of the people that invadeth us.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:17 -
For though the fig-tree shall not flourish,
Neither shall fruit be in the vines;

And there shall be no herd in the stalls:

Yet I will rejoice in Jehovah,
I will joy in the God of my salvation.

And he maketh my feet like hinds’ feet,
And will make me to walk upon my high places.
