Habakkuk 3:10

Context

3:10 When the mountains see you, they shake.

The torrential downpour sweeps through. 1 

The great deep 2  shouts out;

it lifts its hands high. 3 

Habakkuk 3:15

Context

3:15 But you trample on the sea with your horses,

on the surging, raging waters. 4 

1 tn Heb “a heavy rain of waters passes by.” Perhaps the flash floods produced by the downpour are in view here.

2 sn The great deep, which is to be equated with the sea (vv. 8, 15), is a symbol of chaos and represents the Lord’s enemies.

3 sn Lifting the hands here suggests panic and is accompanied by a cry for mercy (see Ps 28:2; Lam 2:19). The forces of chaos cannot withstand the Lord’s power revealed in the storm.

4 tn Heb “the foaming of the mighty [or “many”] waters.”
