John Trapp Complete Commentary. 2:20), the prophet now responds with a prayer. Interpreters think that God is signified here by this title, for he presides over all the songs of the godly: and it may not inaptly be applied to him as the leader of the singers, as though the Prophet had said,—“God will be a strength to me; though I am weak in myself, I shall yet be strong in him; and he will enable me to surmount all obstacles, and I shall proceed boldly, who am now like one half-dead; and he will thus become the occasion of my song, and be the leader of the singers engaged in celebrating his praises, when he shall deliver from death his people in so wonderful a manner.” We hence see that the connection is not unsuitable, when he says, that there would be strength for him in God; and particularly as giving of thanks belonged to the leader or the chief singer, in order that God’s aid might be celebrated, not only privately but at the accustomed sacrifices, as was usually the case under the law.

I do not think that the line makes any part of the prophecy, but merely the superscription or direction of the work when it was finished. 21–23), But some will doubt that he captures the significance of the picture of a hind in Habakkuk 3:19-note when he sees only swiftness ascending and gracefully gliding (262–63).

Probably not only the safety, but the moral elevation of Israel above all the lands of the earth is implied (Deuteronomy 33:29, "Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the Lord ... thou shalt tread upon their (thine enemies') high places)". God to a man for his strength. The 18th Psalm gives a somewhat different and inferior version of that thought when it says, “It is the Lord that girdeth me with strength.” But Habakkuk, though perhaps he could not have put into dogmatic shape all that he meant, had come further than that, “The Lord is my strength.” He not only gives, as one might put a coin into the hand of a beggar, while standing separate from him all the while, but “the Lord is my strength.” And what does that mean?

We hence see that the Prophet entertained firm hope, and by his example animated the faithful, provided they had God propitious, however might all other things fail them. Habakkuk has here before his mind Psalms 18:33-34, "He maketh my feet like, hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places;" Deuteronomy 32:13, "He made him ride on the high places of the earth." In the primitive times happy was he held that could repeat aliquid Davidicmn, anything of David’s doings. It is only when the herd ventures a little down the hill that it is in danger from shots.

The Prophet’s Prayer - A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, on Shigionoth. "Like hind's feet ..."

He will make my feet like hinds’ feet; that I may escape to God my refuge to that safe mountain of salvation, that I may at last flee from Babylon to Judea, to Jerusalem. And when this singer, or his brother psalmist in the other psalm that we have referred to, says “Thou makest my feet like hinds’ feet,” what he is thinking about is that fight and easy, springing, elastic gait, that swiftness of advance. It closes with a doxology in which Habakkuk praised God and recommitted himself to faith in and faithfulness to Yahweh as he anticipated hard times to come (ch3). b. O LORD, revive Your work in the midst of the years: Habakkuk simply prays for revival. Our King Alfred translated the Psalter himself into his own Saxon tongue. Habakkuk 3:19, “The Sovereign Lord is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to go on the heights.” Brief Summary: The Book of Habakkuk begins with Habakkuk crying out to God for an answer to why God’s chosen people are allowed to suffer in their captivity (Habakkuk 1:1-4). To the chief singer—i.e., to the precentor, or presiding singer. Selah His glory covered the heavens, And the earth was full of His praise. Having had his eyes turned to God (Hab. (To be performed) on my stringed instruments,” or, “To him who presides over my stringed instruments.” The fact that the same direction occurs with the words in the same order in six Psalms perhaps favours the latter rendering in all cases. Habakkuk 3:19New International Version (NIV) 19 The Sovereign Lordis my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. Dried fruit was an important part of winter food. It is the same thought, under a somewhat different garb, which the apostle has when he tells us that the Christian soldier ought to have his “feet shod with the alacrity that comes from the Gospel of peace.” We are to be always ready to run, and to run with light hearts when we do. Our souls may be like stars, and dwell apart, and yet may lay the humblest duties upon themselves, and whilst we live in the high places, we “may travel on life’s common way in cheerful godliness.” So we may go on until at last we shall hear the Voice that says, “Come up higher,” and shall be lifted to the mountain of God, where the living waters are, and shall fear no snares or hunters any more for ever. Even so when at the end of the world all shall fail, and the love of many shall wax cold, and the Church, which is likened to the fig tree the vine and the (Luke 13:6; Isaiah 5:1; Isaiah 21:33; etc. The overflowing streams, Joshua 3:15 passed by, retiring on either side: the deep uttered his voice, and lifted up his hands on high, roaring as it fled. But if the prophet, by using this formula, stipulates that the ode is to be used in the temple, accompanied by stringed instruments, the expression bingı̄nōthai, with my stringed playing, affirms that he himself will accompany it with his own playing, from which it has been justly inferred that he was qualified, according to the arrangements of the Israelitish worship, to take part in the public performance of such pieces of music as were suited for public worship, and therefore belonged to the Levites who were entrusted with the conduct of the musical performance of the temple. There are seasons when we get clear views of Divine truth, when they appear in a new glory. (z) The chief singer upon the instruments of music, will have occasion to praise God for this great deliverance of his Church. God makes a man’s feet like “hinds’ feet”; that is, He makes the heavy, sluggish mortal into a light active being. He makes my feet like deer's feet, And enables me to go in high places. Some think that this was said with regard to Judea, which is, as it is well known, mountainous; but I take the expression more simply in this way,—that God would make his faithful people to advance boldly and without fear along high places: for they who fear hide themselves and dare not to raise up the head, nor proceed openly along public roads; but the Prophet says, God will make me to tread on any high places. A good hope through grace is founded in holy fear. Habakkuk 3:19 AMPC The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds' feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!

So it is with the soul. 5. And He gives him feet that can clamber without slipping, and makes him walk in the high places, within his soul far from strife and trouble. This chapter begins with a prayer of Habakkuk. He was seen advancing in majesty from afar, from Teman and Paran, while the heavens shone with his brightness, and earth rang with his praise, or was full of his light, he shone like the sun; he had horns, or beams, coming out of his hand or sides; begirt around with irradiation; and there was the hiding of his power; a little of his glory appeared; the far greater part was hid; for the greatness of his power who can understand? Like hinds feet — That I may escape to God my refuge. And so he says further, how we can use it as our own. Habakkuk chapter 3 reveals what happens when we stop complaining and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to us through prayer. (68) I affirm nothing in a doubtful matter: and it is enough to bear in mind what we have said,—that the Prophet promises here to God a continual thanksgiving, when the faithful were redeemed, for not only each one would acknowledge that they had been saved by God’s hand, but all would assemble together in the Temple, and there testify their gratitude, and not only with their voices confess God as their Deliverer, but also with instruments of music, as we know it to have been the usual custom under the Law.
