A prayer of Habak'kuk the prophet, according to Shigion'oth.
O LORD, I have heard the report of thee, and thy work, O LORD, do I fear. In the midst of the years renew it; in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy.
God came from Teman, and the Holy One from Mount Paran. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise. Selah
His brightness was like the light, rays flashed from his hand; and there he veiled his power.
Before him went pestilence, and plague followed close behind.
He stood and measured the earth; he looked and shook the nations; then the eternal mountains were scattered, the everlasting hills sank low. His ways were as of old.
I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction; the curtains of the land of Mid'ian did tremble.
