Chapter 3

Hymn About God’s Reign

Prayer of Habakkuk, the prophet. According to Shigyonot.[a]

O Lord, I have heard your renown,
    and am in awe, O Lord, of your work.
In the course of years revive it,[b]
    in the course of years make yourself known;
    in your wrath remember compassion!

[c]God came from Teman,[d]
    the Holy One from Mount Paran.
Selah

His glory covered the heavens,
    and his praise filled the earth;

Footnotes:

  1. 3:1 Shigyonot: a Hebrew technical term no longer understood, but probably a musical notation regarding the following hymn. This term, the references to the leader and stringed instruments at the end of the hymn (v. 19), and the use of the term selah in vv. 3, 9, and 13 are found elsewhere in the Bible only in the Psalter, and they indicate that, like the psalms, this poem was once used in worship.
  2. 3:2 In the course of years revive it: a plea for God to renew the works of the past.
  3. 3:3–15 Cf. the theophanies in Dt 33:2–3; Jgs 5:4–5; Ps 18:8–16; 68:8–9; 77:17–21; 97:1–5; Na 1:3–6, etc. Conventional language is employed to describe the appearance of the Lord, as in Ex 19:16–19.
  4. 3:3 Teman: a region in Edom. Mount Paran: in the territory of Edom, or the northern part of the Sinai peninsula.
