Habakkuk 3:7-9 American Standard Version (ASV)

I saw the tents of Cushan in affliction;
The curtains of the land of Midian did tremble.
Was Jehovah displeased with the rivers?
Was thine anger against the rivers,
Or thy wrath against the sea,
That thou didst ride upon thy horses,
Upon thy chariots of salvation?
Thy bow was made quite bare;
[a]The oaths to the tribes were a sure word. Selah
Thou didst cleave the earth with rivers.


  1. Habakkuk 3:9 Or, Sworn were the chastisements (Hebrew rods) of thy word

Habakkuk 3:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

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;
