That bthe mountains might flow down at thy presence,
2 As when †the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil,
To make thy name known to thine adversaries,
That the nations may tremble at thy presence!
3 When cthou didst terrible things which we looked not for,
4 For since the beginning of the world dmen have not heard, nor perceived by the ear,
Neither hath the eye ||seen, O God, beside thee,
eWhat he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.
Behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned:
kIn those is continuance, and we shall be saved.
6 But we are all as lan unclean thing,
And our iniquities, like the wind, have qtaken us away.
7 And there is none that rcalleth upon thy name,
That stirreth up himself to take hold of thee:
For sthou hast hid thy face from us,
8 But now, O Lord, tthou art our father;
And wwe all are the work of thy hand.
9 xBe not wroth very sore, O Lord,
yNeither remember iniquity for ever:
Behold, see, we beseech thee, zwe are all thy people.
10 aThy holy cities are a wilderness,
Zion is a wilderness, bJerusalem a desolation.
11 Our holy and our cbeautiful house,
Where our fathers praised thee,
dIs burned up with fire:
And all eour pleasant things are laid waste.
12 Wilt thou frefrain thyself for these things, O Lord?
