Abstract :
In Hab 3,14a the minimal emendation of במטיו 'with his staffs' into במטוי 'into the spun of' is suggested. Hab 3,14 is perceived as describing God on His chariot chasing the enemy’s fleeing horsemen, piercing the spun or braids at the back of their head. These horsemen have previously much enjoyed the chase and the loot when they attacked Judah.
