Habakkuk 3:19 - The Sovereign LORD is my strength

NIV The Sovereign LORD is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to go on the heights.
KJV The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.
NASB The Lord GOD is my strength,
And He has made my feet like hinds' feet,
And makes me walk on my high places.
Habakkuk 3:19


"The Lord God" - Here the divine name Yahweh is tied to the term Adonai, which means "Lord." my strength: God will strengthen those who trust in Him (Ps. 18:32, 39). He will give those who live by faith the same confidence that a surefooted deer has in climbing mountains (Mal. 4:2). Like a victorious army, the righteous with God's strength will occupy the high hills.

Did you know?

Two types of deer are mentioned in the Bible, the fallow deer and the roe deer. (Males and females are not called bucks and does, but harts and hinds.)
