Habakkuk 3 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
3 2 A prayer for the faithful.
1 A prayer of Habakkuk the Prophet for the [a]ignorances.
3 God cometh from [d]Teman, and the holy One from mount Paran, Selah. His glory covereth the heavens, and the earth is full of his praise,
4 And his brightness was as the light: [e]he had horns coming out of his hands, and there was the hiding of his power.
5 Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth before his feet.
6 He stood and measured the earth: he beheld and dissolved the nations, and the everlasting mountains were broken, and the ancient hills did bow: his [f]ways are everlasting.
7 [g]For his iniquity I saw the tents of Cushan, and the curtains of the land of Midian did tremble.
10 The mountains saw thee, and they trembled: the stream of the water [m]passed by: the deep made a noise, and lifted up his hand on high.
12 Thou trodest down the land in anger, and didst thresh the heathen in displeasure.
13 Thou wentest forth for the salvation of thy people, even for salvation with thine [p]Anointed: thou hast wounded the head of the house of the wicked, and discoveredst the foundations unto the [q]neck, Selah.
14 Thou didst [r]strike through with his own staves the heads 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 in the sea with thine horses upon the heap of great waters.
16 When I [s]heard, my belly trembled: my lips shook at the voice: rottenness entered into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in [t]the day of trouble: for when he cometh up [u]unto the people, he shall destroy them.
17 For the fig tree shall not flourish, neither shall fruit be in the vines: the labor of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat: the sheep shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no bullock in the stalls.
18 But I will rejoice in the Lord: I will joy [v]in the God of my salvation.
19 The Lord God is my strength: he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. [w]To the chief singer on Neginoth.
