To lay him open from [fn]thigh to neck. Selah.

The head of his [fn]throngs.

On the surge of many waters.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:16 - I heard and my [fn]inward parts trembled,

And in my place I tremble.
Because I must wait quietly for the day of distress,
[fn]For the people to arise who will invade us.
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:17 - Though the fig tree should not blossom
And there be no [fn]fruit on the vines,
Though the yield of the olive should fail
And the fields produce no food,
Though the flock should be cut off from the fold
And there be no cattle in the stalls,
Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:18 - Yet I will exult 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 hinds’ feet,
And makes me walk on my high places.
For the choir director, on my stringed instruments.
