G. Campbell Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible
Habakkuk 3

 

 

Verses 1-19

In the proclamation concerning the righteous, the majesty of Jehovah and the consequent triumph of His people are set forth. It consists of a psalm which is a prayer.

In the first movement the prophet declared his recognition of the divine interference, and his consequent fear. He then proceeded to celebrate the greatness of Jehovah as manifest in His dealings with His ancient people.

The last section of the psalm expressed the fear and the faith of the just. The contemplation of the judgment of the "puffed up" had filled the prophet with fear, yet he triumphed in God. Describing the circumstances of utter desolation, he declared his determination to rejoice, and announced his reason for this determination.
