Habakkuk Rejoices in the Lord
Though the fig tree should not blossom,
nor fruit be on the vines,
the produce of the olive fail
and the fields yield no food,
the flock be cut off from the fold
and there be no herd in the stalls,
e yet I will rejoice in the Lord;
f I will take joy in the God of my salvation.
God, the Lord, is my strength;
g he makes my feet like the deer's;
he makes me h tread on my i high places.
j To the choirmaster: with k stringed instruments.

Happy are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord, the shield of your help, and the sword of your triumph! Your enemies shall come fawning to you, and you shall tread upon their backs.
Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have given me relief when I was in distress. Be gracious to me and hear my prayer!
