Isaiah 64:1–12

Oh that thou wouldest arend the heavens, that thou wouldest acome down,

That bthe mountains might flow down at thy presence,

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!

When cthou didst terrible things which we looked not for,

aThou camest down, bthe mountains flowed down at thy presence.

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.

Thou fmeetest him that rejoiceth and gworketh righteousness,

hThose that remember thee in ithy ways:

Behold, thou art wroth; for we have sinned:

kIn those is continuance, and we shall be saved.

But we are all as lan unclean thing,

And mall our righteousnesses are nas filthy rags;

And owe all pdo fade as a leaf;

And our iniquities, like the wind, have qtaken us away.

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,

And hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.

But now, O Lord, tthou art our father;

uWe are the clay, and vthou our potter;

And wwe all are the work of thy hand.

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?

gWilt thou fhold thy peace, and afflict us very sore?
