Isaiah 64

64
LXIV
1O that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down,
That the mountains might flow down at thy presence,
2As the fire kindleth the dry fuel,
As the fire causeth the waters to boil,
To make known thy name to thine adversaries,
That the nations may tremble at thy presence.
3When thou didst terrible things, which we expected not;
Thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.
4For from the remotest time men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear.
Neither hath the eye seen any God beside Thee,
That doeth such things for those who wait for him.
5Thou meetest them that rejoice and do justice,
Those that remember thee in thy ways:
Behold, thou wast wroth, when we sinned;
Thou watt against them of old, and shall we be saved?
6We are all of us as an unclean thing,
And all our righteousnesses are as a filthy garment;
And we are all of us withered like a leaf;
And our iniquities, like the wind, have carried us away.
7There is none that calleth upon thy name,
That stirreth up himself to take hold of thee;
For thou hast hid thy face from us,
And caused us to melt away by reason of our sins.
8But now, O Jehovah, thou art our Father;
We are the clay, and thou hast formed us:
We are all of us the work of thy hand.
9Be not wroth very sore, O Jehovah,
Neither remember iniquity for ever:
Behold! see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.
10Thy holy cities are a wilderness,
Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.
11Our holy and our beautiful house,
Where our fathers praised thee,
Is burned up with fire;
And all the objects of our desire are laid waste.
12Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O Jehovah?
Wilt thou keep silence, and afflict us very sore?

Isaiah 64

64
1O that thou wouldst rend the heavens and come down,
that the mountains might quake at thy presence—
2 # 64.2 Ch 64.1 in Heb as when fire kindles brushwood
and the fire causes water to boil—
to make thy name known to thy adversaries,
and that the nations might tremble at thy presence!
3When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for,
thou camest down, the mountains quaked at thy presence.
4 # 1 Cor 2.9. From of old no one has heard
or perceived by the ear,
no eye has seen a God besides thee,
who works for those who wait for him.
5Thou meetest him that joyfully works righteousness,
those that remember thee in thy ways.
Behold, thou wast angry, and we sinned;
in our sins we have been a long time, and shall we be saved?#64.5 Hebrew obscure
6We have all become like one who is unclean,
and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment.
We all fade like a leaf,
and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
7There is no one that calls upon thy name,
that bestirs himself to take hold of thee;
for thou hast hid thy face from us,
and hast delivered#64.7 Gk Syr Old Latin Tg: Heb melted us into the hand of our iniquities.
8Yet, O Lord, thou art our Father;
we are the clay, and thou art our potter;
we are all the work of thy hand.
9Be not exceedingly angry, O Lord,
and remember not iniquity for ever.
Behold, consider, we are all thy people.
10Thy holy cities have become a wilderness,
Zion has become a wilderness,
Jerusalem a desolation.
11Our holy and beautiful house,
where our fathers praised thee,
has been burned by fire,
and all our pleasant places have become ruins.
12Wilt thou restrain thyself at these things, O Lord?
Wilt thou keep silent, and afflict us sorely?
