Hab 3:3–15

3:3–15 Habakkuk’s prayer portrays a theophany, or visible self-manifestation of God, using imagery that is found in the traditional descriptions of God’s appearances at the Exodus from Egypt, at the giving of the covenant law at Sinai, and during the conquest of Canaan (Ex. 15:1–18; Deut. 33:2, 3; Judg. 5:4, 5; Ps. 18:10; 68:7, 8, 24; 77:16–20).
