Habakkuk 3 (WEBP)

[1] A prayer of Habakkuk, the prophet, set to victorious music.
[2] Yahweh, I have heard of your fame. I stand in awe of your deeds, Yahweh. Renew your work in the middle of the years. In the middle of the years make it known. In wrath, you remember mercy.
[3] God came from Teman, the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and his praise filled the earth.
[4] His splendor is like the sunrise. Rays shine from his hand, where his power is hidden.
[5] Plague went before him, and pestilence followed his feet.
[6] He stood, and shook the earth. He looked, and made the nations tremble. The ancient mountains were crumbled. The age-old hills collapsed. His ways are eternal.
[7] I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction. The dwellings of the land of Midian trembled.
[8] Was Yahweh displeased with the rivers? Was your anger against the rivers, or your wrath against the sea, that you rode on your horses, on your chariots of salvation?
[9] You uncovered your bow. You called for your sworn arrows. Selah. You split the earth with rivers.
[10] The mountains saw you, and were afraid. The storm of waters passed by. The deep roared and lifted up its hands on high.
[11] The sun and moon stood still in the sky at the light of your arrows as they went, at the shining of your glittering spear.
[12] You marched through the land in wrath. You threshed the nations in anger.
[13] You went out for the salvation of your people, for the salvation of your anointed. You crushed the head of the land of wickedness. You stripped them head to foot. Selah.
[14] You pierced the heads of his warriors with their own spears. They came as a whirlwind to scatter me, gloating as if to devour the wretched in secret.
[15] You trampled the sea with your horses, churning mighty waters.
[16] I heard, and my body trembled. My lips quivered at the voice. Rottenness enters into my bones, and I tremble in my place because I must wait quietly for the day of trouble, for the coming up of the people who invade us.
[17] For even though the fig tree doesn’t flourish, nor fruit be in the vines, the labor of the olive fails, the fields yield no food, the flocks are cut off from the fold, and there is no herd in the stalls,
[18] yet I will rejoice in Yahweh. I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
[19] Yahweh, the Lord,§ is my strength. He makes my feet like deer’s feet, and enables me to go in high places. For the music director, on my stringed instruments.

Habakkuk 3:19 The word translated “Lord” is “Adonai.”

Habakkuk 3 (KJVS)

[1] A prayer H8605 of Habakkuk H2265 the prophet H5030 upon Shigionoth H7692.
[2] O LORD H3068, I have heard H8085 (8804) thy speech H8088, [and] was afraid H3372 (8804): O LORD H3068, revive H2421 (8761) thy work H6467 in the midst H7130 of the years H8141, in the midst H7130 of the years H8141 make known H3045 (8686); in wrath H7267 remember H2142 (8799) mercy H7355 (8763).
[3] God H433 came H935 (8799) from Teman H8487, and the Holy One H6918 from mount H2022 Paran H6290. Selah H5542. His glory H1935 covered H3680 (8765) the heavens H8064, and the earth H776 was full H4390 (8804) of his praise H8416.
[4] And [his] brightness H5051 was as the light H216; he had horns H7161 [coming] out of his hand H3027: and there [was] the hiding H2253 of his power H5797.
[5] Before H6440 him went H3212 (8799) the pestilence H1698, and burning coals H7565 went forth H3318 (8799) at his feet H7272.
[6] He stood H5975 (8804), and measured H4128 (8787) the earth H776: he beheld H7200 (8804), and drove asunder H5425 (8686) the nations H1471; and the everlasting H5703 mountains H2042 were scattered H6327 (8691), the perpetual H5769 hills H1389 did bow H7817 (8804): his ways H1979 [are] everlasting H5769.
[7] I saw H7200 (8804) the tents H168 of Cushan H3572 in affliction H205: [and] the curtains H3407 of the land H776 of Midian H4080 did tremble H7264 (8799).
[8] Was the LORD H3068 displeased H2734 (8804) against the rivers H5104? [was] thine anger H639 against the rivers H5104? [was] thy wrath H5678 against the sea H3220, that thou didst ride H7392 (8799) upon thine horses H5483 [and] thy chariots H4818 of salvation H3444?
[9] Thy bow H7198 was made quite H6181 naked H5783 (8735), [according] to the oaths H7621 of the tribes H4294, [even thy] word H562. Selah H5542. Thou didst cleave H1234 (8762) the earth H776 with rivers H5104.
[10] The mountains H2022 saw H7200 (8804) thee, [and] they trembled H2342 (8799): the overflowing H2230 of the water H4325 passed by H5674 (8804): the deep H8415 uttered H5414 (8804) his voice H6963, [and] lifted up H5375 (8804) his hands H3027 on high H7315.
[11] The sun H8121 [and] moon H3394 stood still H5975 (8804) in their habitation H2073: at the light H216 of thine arrows H2671 they went H1980 (8762), [and] at the shining H5051 of thy glittering H1300 spear H2595.
[12] Thou didst march through H6805 (8799) the land H776 in indignation H2195, thou didst thresh H1758 (8799) the heathen H1471 in anger H639.
[13] Thou wentest forth H3318 (8804) for the salvation H3468 of thy people H5971, [even] for salvation H3468 with thine anointed H4899; thou woundedst H4272 (8804) the head H7218 out of the house H1004 of the wicked H7563, by discovering H6168 (8763) the foundation H3247 unto the neck H6677. Selah H5542.
[14] Thou didst strike through H5344 (8804) with his staves H4294 the head H7218 of his villages H6518: they came out as a whirlwind H5590 (8799) to scatter H6327 (8687) me: their rejoicing H5951 [was] as to devour H398 (8800) the poor H6041 secretly H4565.
[15] Thou didst walk H1869 (8804) through the sea H3220 with thine horses H5483, [through] the heap H2563 of great H7227 waters H4325.
[16] When I heard H8085 (8804), my belly H990 trembled H7264 (8799); my lips H8193 quivered H6750 (8804) at the voice H6963: rottenness H7538 entered H935 (8799) into my bones H6106, and I trembled H7264 (8799) in myself, that I might rest H5117 (8799) in the day H3117 of trouble H6869: when he cometh up H5927 (8800) unto the people H5971, he will invade them with his troops H1464 (8799).
[17] Although the fig tree H8384 shall not blossom H6524 (8799), neither [shall] fruit H2981 [be] in the vines H1612; the labour H4639 of the olive H2132 shall fail H3584 (8765), and the fields H7709 shall yield H6213 (8804) no meat H400; the flock H6629 shall be cut off H1504 (8804) from the fold H4356, and [there shall be] no herd H1241 in the stalls H7517:
[18] Yet I will rejoice H5937 (8799) in the LORD H3068, I will joy H1523 (8799) in the God H430 of my salvation H3468.
[19] The LORD H3069 God H136 [is] my strength H2428, and he will make H7760 (8799) my feet H7272 like hinds H355’ [feet], and he will make me to walk H1869 (8686) upon mine high places H1116. To the chief singer H5329 (8764) on my stringed instruments H5058.

Young’s Literal Translation

Habakkuk 3 (YLT)

[1] A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet concerning erring ones:
[2] O Jehovah, I heard thy report, I have been afraid, O Jehovah, Thy work! in midst of years revive it, In the midst of years Thou makest known In anger Thou dost remember mercy.
[3] God from Teman doth come, The Holy One from mount Paran. Pause! Covered the heavens hath His majesty, And His praise hath filled the earth.
[4] And the brightness is as the light, He hath rays out of His hand, And there-the hiding of His strength.
[5] Before Him goeth pestilence, And a burning flame goeth forth at His feet.
[6] He hath stood, and He measureth earth, He hath seen, and He shaketh off nations, And scatter themselves do mountains of antiquity, Bowed have the hills of old, The ways of old are His.
[7] Under sorrow I have seen tents of Cushan, Tremble do curtains of the land of Midian.
[8] Against rivers hath Jehovah been wroth? Against rivers is Thine anger? Against the sea is Thy wrath? For Thou dost ride on Thy horses- Thy chariots of salvation?
[9] Utterly naked Thou dost make Thy bow, Sworn are the tribes-saying, ‘Pause!’ With rivers Thou dost cleave the earth.
[10] Seen thee-pained are mountains, An inundation of waters hath passed over, Given forth hath the deep its voice, High its hands it hath lifted up.
[11] Sun-moon-hath stood-a habitation, At the light thine arrows go on, At the brightness, the glittering of thy spear.
[12] In indignation Thou dost tread earth, In anger Thou dost thresh nations.
[13] Thou hast gone forth for the salvation of Thy people, For salvation with Thine anointed, Thou hast smitten the head of the house of the wicked, Laying bare the foundation unto the neck. Pause!
[14] Thou hast pierced with his staves the head of his leaders, They are tempestuous to scatter me, Their exultation is as to consume the poor in secret.
[15] Thou hast proceeded through the sea with Thy horses-the clay of many waters.
[16] I have heard, and my belly trembleth, At the noise have my lips quivered, Rottenness doth come into my bones, And in my place I do tremble, That I rest for a day of distress, At the coming up of the people, he overcometh it.
[17] Though the fig-tree doth not flourish, And there is no produce among vines, Failed hath the work of the olive, And fields have not yielded food, Cut off from the fold hath been the flock, And there is no herd in the stalls.
[18] Yet I, in Jehovah I exult, I do joy in the God of my salvation.
[19] Jehovah the Lord is my strength, And He doth make my feet like hinds, And on my high-places causeth me to tread. To the overseer with my stringed instruments!
