3:1  A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, on Shigionoth.
3:2  O Lord, I have heard the report of You, and was afraid; O Lord, revive Your work in the midst of the years! In the midst of these years make them known; in wrath remember mercy.
3:3  God came from Teman, and the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of His praise.
3:4  His brightness was like the light; rays flashed from His hand, and there His power was hidden.
3:5  Pestilence went out before Him, and plague followed His feet.
3:6  He stood and measured the earth; He looked and shook the nations. The eternal mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills bowed. His ways are everlasting.
3:7  I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction; the curtains of the land of Midian trembled.
3:8  Were you displeased with the rivers, O Lord? Was Your anger against the rivers, and was Your wrath against the sea when You rode on Your horses, on Your chariots of salvation?
3:9  You made bare Your bow; oaths were the arrows at Your command.     Selah You divided the earth with the rivers.
3:10  The mountains saw You and trembled; the overflowing water passed by. The deep lifted its voice, and lifted its hands on high.
3:11  The sun and moon stood still in their places; at the light of Your arrows they went, at the flash of Your glittering spear.
3:12  You marched throughout the earth in indignation; You threshed the nations in anger.
3:13  You went forth to deliver Your people, to deliver Your anointed one. You wounded the head of the house of the wicked, laying him bare from head to foot.     Selah
3:14  You pierced with his own arrows the leaders of his villages. They came like a whirlwind to scatter me; their rejoicing was like devouring the poor in secret.
3:15  You trampled the sea with Your horses, through the wakes of great waters.
3:16  I heard, and my body trembled; my lips quivered at the sound; rottenness entered my bones; my legs tremble beneath me. Yet I will wait quietly for the day when calamity comes on the people invading us.
3:17  Though the fig tree does not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines; though the yield of the olive fails, and the fields produce no food; though the flocks are cut off from the fold, and there be no herd in the stalls—
3:18  yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the God of my salvation.
