Habakkuk 3

Habakkuk 3:17-19
3:17 [a detailed description of disasters (the loss of food sources) associated with God’s coming judgment at the hands of the Babylonians] 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 pen and no cattle in the stalls,

3:18 [a statement of how Habakkuk would respond to the disasters listed in 3:17] yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior.

3:19 [the basis for Habakkuk’s confident hope…] The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet [swift and sure-footed] of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights [either places of potential danger or inner spiritual heights or both]. For the director of music [indicates that Habakkuk intended that the words be put to music]. On my stringed instruments.
