Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:1 - This is a prayer of Habakkuk the prophet:

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:2 - LORD, I have heard the report of what you did; I am awed, LORD, by what you accomplished. In our time repeat those deeds; in our time reveal them again. But when you cause turmoil, remember to show us mercy!

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:3 - God comes from Teman, the sovereign one from Mount Paran. Selah. His splendor covers the skies, his glory fills the earth.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:4 - He is as bright as lightning; a two-pronged lightning bolt flashes from his hand. This is the outward display of his power.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:5 - Plague goes before him; pestilence marches right behind him.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:6 - He takes his battle position and shakes the earth; with a mere look he frightens the nations. The ancient mountains disintegrate; the primeval hills are flattened. He travels on the ancient roads.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:7 - I see the tents of Cushan overwhelmed by trouble; the tent curtains of the land of Midian are shaking.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:8 - Is the LORD mad at the rivers? Are you angry with the rivers? Are you enraged at the sea? Is this why you climb into your horse-drawn chariots, your victorious chariots?

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:9 - Your bow is ready for action; you commission your arrows. Selah. You cause flash floods on the earth's surface.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:10 - When the mountains see you, they shake. The torrential downpour sweeps through. The great deep shouts out; it lifts its hands high.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:11 - The sun and moon stand still in their courses; the flash of your arrows drives them away, the bright light of your lightning-quick spear.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:12 - You furiously stomp on the earth, you angrily trample down the nations.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:13 - You march out to deliver your people, to deliver your special servant. You strike the leader of the wicked nation, laying him open from the lower body to the neck. Selah.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:14 - You pierce the heads of his warriors with a spear. They storm forward to scatter us; they shout with joy as if they were plundering the poor with no opposition.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:15 - But you trample on the sea with your horses, on the surging, raging waters.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:16 - I listened and my stomach churned; the sound made my lips quiver. My frame went limp, as if my bones were decaying, and I shook as I tried to walk. I long for the day of distress to come upon the people who attack us.

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:17 - When the fig tree does not bud, and there are no grapes on the vines; when the olive trees do not produce, and the fields yield no crops; when the sheep disappear from the pen, and there are no cattle in the stalls,

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:18 - I will rejoice because of the LORD; I will be happy because of the God who delivers me!

Unchecked Copy BoxHab 3:19 - The sovereign LORD is my source of strength. He gives me the agility of a deer; he enables me to negotiate the rugged terrain. (This prayer is for the song leader. It is to be accompanied by stringed instruments.)
