A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet. On "shigionoth".a12
LORD, I have heard2 of your fame; I stand in awe3 of your deeds, O LORD.4 Renew5 them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy.63
God came from Teman,7 the Holy One8 from Mount Paran.9 "Selah"b His glory covered the heavens10 and his praise filled the earth.114
His splendor was like the sunrise;12 rays flashed from his hand, where his power13 was hidden.
Plague14 went before him; pestilence followed his steps.
He stood, and shook the earth; he looked, and made the nations tremble. The ancient mountains crumbled15 and the age-old hills16 collapsed.17 His ways are eternal.187
I saw the tents of Cushan in distress, the dwellings of Midian19 in anguish.208
Were you angry with the rivers,21 O LORD? Was your wrath against the streams? Did you rage against the sea22 when you rode with your horses and your victorious chariots?239
You uncovered your bow, you called for many arrows.24 "Selah" You split the earth with rivers;
the mountains saw you and writhed.25 Torrents of water swept by; the deep roared26 and lifted its waves27 on high.
Sun and moon stood still28 in the heavens at the glint of your flying arrows,29 at the lightning30 of your flashing spear.
