Habakkuk 3:2

Hebrew Bible

1 This is a prayer of Habakkuk the prophet: 2 Lord, I have heard the report of what you did; I am awed, Lord, by what you accomplished. In our time repeat those deeds; in our time reveal them again. But when you cause turmoil, remember to show us mercy! 3 God comes from Teman, the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah. His splendor has covered the skies, the earth is full of his glory. 4 His brightness will be as lightning; a two-pronged lightning bolt flashing from his hand. This is the outward display of his power.

Jonathan Habakkuk 3:2


2 Lord I have heard of your power, I have feared the greatness of your works. You give a respite to the wicked if they convert to your Law. But if they do not convert but provoke your anger in the midst of the years you have given them to live, then it will be that you make your power known in the midst of the years when you have said that you will renew the world and will take vengeance on the wicket who have transgressed your word. But with mercy you will remember the righteous who have done your will. When God gave the Law to His people, He was revealed from the South and the Holy one from Mount Paran. The heavens were opened through eternal power at the splendor of His glory, and the earth was full of the words of His praise.
