哈巴谷書 3

哈巴谷的禱告

1以下是哈巴谷先知的禱告,採用流離調[a]

耶和華啊,我聽過你的威名;
耶和華啊,我對你的作為充滿敬畏。
求你如今再次彰顯你的作為,
求你發怒的時候仍以憐憫為念。

上帝從提幔來,
聖者從巴蘭山來。(細拉)
祂的榮耀遮蔽諸天,
頌讚祂的聲音響徹大地。
祂的榮光猶如太陽的光輝,
祂的手射出光芒,
其中蘊藏著大能。
瘟疫行在祂前面,
災病跟在祂腳後。
祂停下,大地就震動;
祂觀看,萬民就戰慄。
古老的山嶽崩裂,
遠古的丘陵塌陷,
但祂的作為永遠不變。
我看見古珊的帳篷遭難,
米甸人的幔子顫抖。
耶和華啊,你是向江河發怒嗎?
你乘著得勝的戰車而來,
是向江河生氣嗎?
是向海洋發怒嗎?
你拿出弓,要射出許多箭羽。(細拉)
你以江河分開大地。
10 群山看見你就戰慄,
大雨傾盆,
深淵翻騰,波浪滔天。
11 你射出的箭閃閃發光,
你的槍熠熠生輝,
以致日月都停在天上。
12 你懷著烈怒走遍大地,
踐踏萬國。
13 你出來是為了拯救你的子民,
拯救你膏立的王。
你打垮邪惡之人的首領,
從頭到腳徹底毀滅他們。(細拉)
14 他們的軍隊如旋風而至,
要驅散我們,
他們以暗中吞噬貧民為樂,
但你用他們的矛刺透他們的頭顱。
15 你騎馬踐踏洶湧的大海。
16 我聽到這些,
就膽戰心驚,嘴唇哆嗦,
四肢無力,雙腿發抖。
但我仍要靜候災難臨到入侵者的日子。

17 即使無花果樹不發芽,
葡萄樹不結果,
橄欖樹無收成,
田地不產糧,
圈裡沒有羊,
棚裡沒有牛,
18 我仍要因耶和華而歡欣,
因拯救我的上帝而喜樂。
19 主耶和華是我的力量,
祂使我的腳如母鹿的蹄,
穩行在高處。

這首歌交給樂長,用弦樂器伴奏。

Habakkuk 3

Habakkuk’s prayer

1A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet. On shigionoth.[a]

Lord, I have heard of your fame;
    I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord.
Repeat them in our day,
    in our time make them known;
    in wrath remember mercy.

God came from Teman,
    the Holy One from Mount Paran.[b]
His glory covered the heavens
    and his praise filled the earth.
His splendour was like the sunrise;
    rays flashed from his hand,
    where his power was hidden.
Plague went before him;
    pestilence followed his steps.
He stood, and shook the earth;
    he looked, and made the nations tremble.
The ancient mountains crumbled
    and the age-old hills collapsed –
    but he marches on for ever.
I saw the tents of Cushan in distress,
    the dwellings of Midian in anguish.

Were you angry with the rivers, Lord?
    Was your wrath against the streams?
Did you rage against the sea
    when you rode your horses
    and your chariots to victory?
You uncovered your bow,
    you called for many arrows.
You split the earth with rivers;
10     the mountains saw you and writhed.
Torrents of water swept by;
    the deep roared
    and lifted its waves on high.

11 Sun and moon stood still in the heavens
    at the glint of your flying arrows,
    at the lightning of your flashing spear.
12 In wrath you strode through the earth
    and in anger you threshed the nations.
13 You came out to deliver your people,
    to save your anointed one.
You crushed the leader of the land of wickedness,
    you stripped him from head to foot.
14 With his own spear you pierced his head
    when his warriors stormed out to scatter us,
gloating as though about to devour
    the wretched who were in hiding.
15 You trampled the sea with your horses,
    churning the great waters.

16 I heard and my heart pounded,
    my lips quivered at the sound;
decay crept into my bones,
    and my legs trembled.
Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity
    to come on the nation invading us.
17 Though the fig-tree does not bud
    and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
    and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the sheepfold
    and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
    I will be joyful in God my Saviour.

19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
    he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
    he enables me to tread on the heights.

For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.
