NASB — Habakkuk 3 — KJV

God’s Deliverance of His People

1 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, according to IShigionoth.

[1] II.e. a highly emotional poetic form

  2 ¶ LORD, I have aheard Ithe report about You [and] III bfear.
  O LORD, crevive dYour work in the midst of the years,
  In the midst of the years make it known;
  In wrath remember IIIemercy.

  3 ¶ God comes from aTeman,
  And the Holy One from Mount bParan.
      Selah.
  His csplendor covers the heavens,
  And the dearth is full of His praise.
  4 [His] aradiance is like the sunlight;
  He has rays [flashing] from His hand,
  And there is the hiding of His bpower.
  5 Before Him goes apestilence,
  And bplague comes Iafter Him.
  6 He stood and surveyed the earth;
  He looked and astartled the nations.
  Yes, the perpetual mountains were shattered,
  The ancient hills Icollapsed.
  His ways are beverlasting.
  7 I saw the tents of Cushan under adistress,
  The tent curtains of the land of bMidian were trembling.

  Or [was] Your anger against the rivers,
  Or [was] Your wrath against the bsea,
  That You crode on Your horses,
  On Your dchariots of salvation?
  9 Your abow was made bare,
  The rods of Ichastisement were sworn.
      Selah.
  You bcleaved the earth with rivers.
  10 The mountains saw You [and] quaked;
  The downpour of waters swept by.
  The deep auttered forth its voice,
  It lifted high its hands.
  11 aSun [and] moon stood in their places;
  They went away at the blight of Your arrows,
  At the radiance of Your gleaming spear.
  12 In indignation You amarched through the earth;
  In anger You Ibtrampled the nations.
  13 You went forth for the asalvation of Your people,
  For the salvation of Your banointed.
  You struck the chead of the house of the evil
  To lay him open from Ithigh to neck.
      Selah.
  14 You pierced with his aown Ispears
  The head of his IIthrongs.
  They bstormed in to scatter IIIus;
  Their exultation [was] like those
  Who cdevour the oppressed in secret.
  15 You atrampled on the sea with Your horses,
  On the bsurge of many waters.

Habakkuk in his prayer trembleth at God's majesty.

1 ¶ A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shigionoth. 2 O LORD, I have heard thy speech, [and] was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy. 3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. 4 And [his] brightness was as the light; he had horns [coming] out of his hand: and there [was] the hiding of his power. 5 Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet. 6 He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: his ways [are] everlasting. 7 I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction: [and] the curtains of the land of Midian did tremble. 8 Was the LORD displeased against the rivers? [was] thine anger against the rivers? [was] thy wrath against the sea, that thou didst ride upon thine horses [and] thy chariots of salvation? 9 Thy bow was made quite naked, [according] to the oaths of the tribes, [even thy] word. Selah. Thou didst cleave the earth with rivers. 10 The mountains saw thee, [and] they trembled: the overflowing of the water passed by: the deep uttered his voice, [and] lifted up his hands on high. 11 The sun [and] moon stood still in their habitation: at the light of thine arrows they went, [and] at the shining of thy glittering spear. 12 Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst thresh the heathen in anger. 13 Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people, [even] for salvation with thine anointed; thou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked, by discovering the foundation unto the neck. Selah. 14 Thou didst strike through with his staves the head of his villages: they came out as a whirlwind to scatter me: their rejoicing [was] as to devour the poor secretly. 15 Thou didst walk through the sea with thine horses, [through] the heap of great waters. 16 When I heard, my belly trembled; my lips quivered at the voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when he cometh up unto the people, he will invade them with his troops.
