Habakkuk in his prayer trembleth at God's majesty.
Habakkuk 3:1 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet vpon Sigionoth. Habakkuk 3:2 O LORD, I haue heard thy speach, [and] was afraide: O LORD, reuiue thy worke in the midst of the yeeres, in the midst of the yeeres make knowen; in wrath remember mercy. Habakkuk 3:3 God came from Teman, and the holy on from mount Paran Selah. His glory couered the heauens and the earth was full of his praise. Habakkuk 3:4 And [his] brightnesse was as the light: he [had] hornes [comming] out of his hand, and there was the hiding of his power: Habakkuk 3:5 Before him went the pestilence, and burning coales went forth at his feete. Habakkuk 3:6 He stood and measured the earth: hee beheld and droue asunder the nations, and the euerlasting mountaines were scattered, the perpetuall hilles did bowe: his wayes [are] euerlasting. Habakkuk 3:7 I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction: [and] the curtaines of the land of Midian did tremble. Habakkuk 3:8 Was the LORD displeased against the riuers? [was] thine anger against the riuers? [was] thy wrath against the Sea, that thou didst ride vpon thine horses, [and] thy charets of saluation? Habakkuk 3:9 Thy bow was made quite naked [according] to the oathes of the tribes, [euen thy] word. Selah. Thou didst cleaue the earth with riuers. Habakkuk 3:10 The mountaines sawe thee, [and] they trembled: the ouerflowing of the water passed by: the deepe vttered his voyce, [and] lift vp his hands on high. Habakkuk 3:11 The Sunne [and] Moone stood still in [their] habitation: at the light of thine arrowes they went, [and] at the shining of thy glittering speare. Habakkuk 3:12 Thou didst march through the land in indignation, thou didst thresh the heathen in anger. Habakkuk 3:13 Thou wentest forth for the saluation of thy people, [euen] for saluation with thine Anointed, thou woundedst the head out of the house of the wicked, by discouering the foundation vnto the necke. Selah. Habakkuk 3:14 Thou didst strike through with his staues the head of his villages: they came out as a whirle-winde to scatter me: their reioycing [was] as to deuoure the poore secretly. Habakkuk 3:15 Thou didst walke through the Sea with thine horses, [through] the heape of great waters. Habakkuk 3:16 When I heard, my belly trembled: my lips quiuered at the voice: rottennesse entred into my bones, and I trembled in my selfe, that I might rest in the day of trouble: when hee commeth vp vnto the people, he wil inuade them with his troupes.
The confidence of his faith.
Habakkuk 3:17 Although the fig tree shall not blossome, neither [shall] fruite [bee] in the vines: the labour of the Oliue shall faile, and the fields shal yeeld no meat, the flocke shall be cut off from the folde, and there [shalbe] no heard in the stalles: Habakkuk 3:18 Yet I will reioyce in the LORD: I will ioy in the God of my saluation. Habakkuk 3:19 The LORD God [is] my strength, and he will make my feet like hindes [feet], and he will make me to walke vpon mine high places. To the chiefe singer on my stringed instruments.
