Habakkuk: Week 4
The Song of Habakkuk
The prophet reviews the mighty works of God in poetic imagery.
"I have heard the report of you" - he remembers the mighty works of the
LORD, and pleads for the LORD to move in power again.
"the Holy One from Mount Paran" -
"flaming fire from his right hand" - see next verse.
"Rays flashed from His hand" - an amazing
visual often appropriated by "New Age" (ye are gods) belief.
"The deep ... lifted its hands on high" - the walls of water!
"Sun and moon stood still" -
"You crushed the head of the house of the wicked" -
Hinds Feet on High Places
"Yet I must wait patiently for the day of distress to come upon the people
who invade us." Their turn will come.
"I know how to be abased and abound."
"yet I will exult in the LORD; I will rejoice in the God of my salvation!"
"Rejoice in the LORD always, and again I say, rejoice!"
"God is my strength" - He gives me hinds feet on high places.
