1 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shiggaion*.

2 O Jehovah, I have heard Thy fame; I have feared Thy work, Jehovah; in the midst of the years make· it ·to·​·live; in the midst of the years make it known; with trembling Thou shalt remember compassion.

3 God came from Teman, and the Holy·​·One from Mount Paran. Selah. His majesty covered the heavens, and the earth was·​·full of His praise.

4 And His brightness was as the light; He had horns from His hand; and there was His strength hidden·​·away*.

5 Before Him went the pestilence, and embers went·​·out at His feet.

6 He stood, and measured the earth; He saw, and dispersed* the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered; the eternal hills did bow· themselves ·down; the walkings of eternity are His.

7 I saw the tents of Cushan in sorrow, and the curtains of the land of Midian did tremble.

8 Was· Jehovah ·incensed against the rivers? Was Thine anger against the rivers? Was Thy wrath against the sea? For Thou didst ride on Thy horses and Thy chariots of salvation.

9 With nakedness Thy bow was made·​·naked: the promises of the rods of Thy saying. Selah. Thou didst split the earth with rivers.

10 The mountains saw Thee, they travailed; the downpour of the water crossed·​·over; the abyss gave forth its voice; it bore·​·up its hands on·​·high.

11 The sun and moon stood in their cohabitation; at the light of Thine arrows they go, at the brightness of the lightning of Thy spear.*

12 Thou didst march through the land in indignation, Thou didst thresh the nations in anger.

13 Thou wentest·​·forth for the salvation of Thy people, for the saving of Thine anointed; Thou strikest the head from the house of the wicked, making·​·naked the foundation, even·​·to the neck. Selah.

14 Thou didst puncture with his own rods the head of his infidels; they were as a whirlwind to scatter me; their triumph was like eating·​·up the afflicted in hiding.

15 Thou didst tread through the sea with Thy horses, through the clay of many waters.

16 I heard, and my belly trembled; my lips tingled at the voice; rottenness came into my bones, and I trembled in myself, that I might rest in the day of adversity, which comes·​·up against the people who will troop·​·against Him.

17 For the fig·​·tree shall not flourish, and there shall be no produce in the vines; the work of the olive·​·tree shall be denied, and the fields shall make no food; the flock shall be severed from the pen, and there shall be no herd in the stalls;

18 but I will triumph in Jehovah; I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.

19 Jehovih* the Lord is my strength, and He will set my feet as deer’s feet, and He will make me to tread on my high·​·places. To the victor; on my neginoth*.


Exploring the Meaning of Habakkuk 3      

Napsal(a) Helen Kennedy

In Habbakuk, Chapter 3 continues with the prediction that the Lord will come into the world. When the Lord comes, He will bring with Him the things belonging to Divine truth and good. He will examine the church. In the light of His judgment, it will be shown that the Jewish Church was no longer a church because of its actions and choices.

The Lord’s presence will dissipate the dead church’s falsities of evil. Judgment will come upon those who hate and oppose Him. Those whose hearts are intent on self-love will suffer spiritual destruction, and they will cast themselves into hell.

Did the Lord enter into this combat with anger? He maintained His grief on account of their state. He grieved because there was no longer anything of the church left.

When evil is overcome, the Lord will rebuild His church. “Those who at heart acknowledge the Lord will be saved.” What church will come out of this combat and disorder? The New Church will rise up out of the ashes of falsity and evil. In the words of Habakkuk, that new church will sing: “rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.”
