1A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, put to Shigionoth.
2O Lord, word of you has come to my ears; I have seen your work, O Lord; when the years come near make it clear; in wrath keep mercy in mind.
3God came from Teman, and the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah. The heavens were covered with his glory, and the earth was full of his praise.
4He was shining like the light; he had rays coming out from his hand: there his power was kept secret.
5Before him went disease, and flames went out at his feet.
6From his high place he sent shaking on the earth; he saw and nations were suddenly moved: and the eternal mountains were broken, the unchanging hills were bent down; his ways are eternal.
7The curtains of Cushan were troubled, and the tents of Midian were shaking.
8Was your wrath burning against the rivers? were you angry with the sea, that you went on your horses, on your war-carriages of salvation?
9Your bow was quite uncovered. Selah. By you the earth was cut through with rivers.
10The mountains saw you and were moved with fear; the clouds were streaming with water: the voice of the deep was sounding; the sun did not come up, and the moon kept still in her place.
11At the light of your arrows they went away, at the shining of your polished spear.
12You went stepping through the land in wrath, crushing the nations in your passion.
13You went out for the salvation of your people, for the salvation of the one on whom your holy oil was put; wounding the head of the family of the evil-doer, uncovering the base even to the neck. Selah.
14You have put your spears through his head, his horsemen were sent in flight like dry stems; they had joy in driving away the poor, in making a meal of them secretly.
15The feet of your horses were on the sea, on the mass of great waters.
16Hearing it, my inner parts were moved, and my lips were shaking at the sound; my bones became feeble, and my steps were uncertain under me: I gave sounds of grief in the day of trouble, when his forces came up against the people in bands.
17For though the fig-tree has no flowers, and there is no fruit on the vine, and work on the olive comes to nothing, and the fields give no food; and the flock is cut off from its resting-place, and there is no herd in the cattle-house:
18Still, I will be glad in the Lord, my joy will be in the God of my salvation.
19The Lord God is my strength, and he makes my feet like roes’ feet, guiding me on my high places. For the chief music-maker on corded instruments.
2 Corinthians 12
1As it is necessary for me to take glory to myself, though it is not a good thing, I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.
2I have knowledge of a man in Christ, fourteen years back (if he was in the body, or out of the body, I am not able to say, but God only), who was taken up to the third heaven.
3And I have knowledge of such a man (if he was in the body, or out of the body, I am not able to say, but God only),
4How he was taken up into Paradise, and words came to his ears which may not be said, and which man is not able to say.
5On account of such a one I will have glory: for myself I will take no glory, but only in my feeble body.
6For if I had a desire to take credit to myself, it would not be foolish, for I would be saying what is true: but I will not, for fear that I might seem to any man more than he sees me to be, or has word from me that I am.
7And because the revelations were so very great, in order that I might not be overmuch lifted up, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, one sent from Satan to give me pain.
8And about this thing I made request to the Lord three times that it might be taken away from me.
9And he said to me, My grace is enough for you, for my power is made complete in what is feeble. Most gladly, then, will I take pride in my feeble body, so that the power of Christ may be on me.
10So I take pleasure in being feeble, in unkind words, in needs, in cruel attacks, in troubles, on account of Christ: for when I am feeble, then am I strong.
11I have been forced by you to become foolish, though it was right for my praise to have come from you: for in no way was I less than the chief of the Apostles, though I am nothing.
12Truly the signs of an Apostle were done among you in quiet strength, with wonders and acts of power.
13For what is there in which you were made less than the other churches, but in the one thing that I was not a trouble to you? Let me have forgiveness for this wrong.
14This is now the third time that I am ready to come to you; and I will not be a trouble to you: my desire is for you, not for your property: for it is not the children’s business to make store for their fathers, but the fathers for the children.
15And I will gladly give all I have for your souls. If I have the more love for you, am I to be loved the less?
16But let it be so, that I was not a trouble to you myself; but (someone may say) being false, I took you with deceit.
17Did I make a profit out of you by any of those whom I sent to you?
18I gave orders to Titus, and I sent the brother with him. Did Titus make any profit out of you? were we not guided by the same Spirit, in the same ways?
19It may seem to you that all this time we have been attempting to put ourselves in the right; but we are saying these things before God in Christ. For all things, dear brothers, are for your profit.
20For I have a fear that, when I come, you may not be answering to my desire, and that I may not be answering to yours; that there may be fighting, hate, angry feeling, divisions, evil talk about others, secrets, thoughts of pride, outbursts against authority;
21And that when I come again, my God may put me to shame among you, and I may have grief for those who have done wrong before and have had no regret for their unclean ways, and for the evil desires of the flesh to which they have given way.
