Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:1 - A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, according to [fn]Shigionoth.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:2 - LORD, I have heard [fn]the report about You, and [fn]I was afraid.
LORD, revive Your work in the midst of the years,
In the midst of the years make it known.
In anger remember [fn]mercy.

He has rays flashing from His hand,
And the hiding of His might is there.

And plague comes forth [fn]after Him.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:6 - He stood and caused the earth to shudder;

Yes, the everlasting mountains were shattered,
The ancient hills [fn]collapsed.
His paths are everlasting.

The tent curtains of the land of Midian were trembling.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:8 - Did the LORD rage against the rivers,
Or was Your anger against the rivers,
Or was Your rage against the sea,
That You rode on Your horses,
On Your chariots of salvation?
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:9 - You removed Your bow from its holder,
The arrows of Your word were [fn]sworn. Selah
You divided the earth with rivers.

They went away at the light of Your arrows,
At the radiance of Your flashing spear.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:12 - In indignation You marched through the earth;
In anger You [fn]trampled the nations.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:13 - You went forth for the salvation of Your people,
For the salvation of Your anointed.
You smashed the head of the house of evil
To uncover him from [fn]foot to neck. Selah
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:14 - You pierced with his own [fn]arrows
The head of his [fn]leaders.
They stormed in to scatter [fn]us;
Their arrogance was like those
Who devour the oppressed in secret.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:15 - You trampled on the sea with Your horses,
On the foam of many waters.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:16 - I heard, and my [fn]inner parts trembled;
At the sound, my lips quivered.
Decay enters my bones,
And in my place I tremble;
Because I [fn]must wait quietly for the day of distress,
[fn]For the people to arise who will attack us.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:17 - Even if the fig tree does not blossom,
And there is no [fn]fruit on the vines,
If the yield of the olive fails,
And the fields produce no food,
Even if the flock disappears from the fold,
And there are no cattle in the stalls,
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:18 - Yet I will triumph in the LORD,
I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:19 - The Lord [fn]GOD is my strength,
And He has made my feet like deer’s feet,
And has me walk on my high places.
For the choir director, on my stringed instruments.
