Isaiah 64




1 Would that thou didst rend the heavens; thou camest down; the mountains flowed from before thee.
2 As the fire of meltings was kindled the fire will cause the water to boil, to cause thy name to be known to thine adversaries; from thy face shall the nations be moved.
3 In thy doing wonderful things we shall not expect, thou camest down, the mountains flowed from before thee.
4 From forever they heard not, they gave not ear, the eye saw not, O God, besides thee, he will do to him waiting for him.
5 Thou mettest him rejoicing and doing justice, they shall remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou wert angry; and we shall sin in them of old, and we shall be saved.
6 And we were all as the unclean, and all our justice as the garment of monthly courses; and we shall all fail away as the leaf; and our iniquities as the wind will take us away.
7 And none calling upon thy name, none rousing himself to take hold upon thee: for thou hiddest thy face from us, and thou wilt melt us by the hand of our iniquities.
8 And now, O Jehovah, thou our Father; we the clay and thou forming us; and we all the work of thy hand.
9 Thou wilt not be angry, O Jehovah, even greatly, and not forever wilt thou remember iniquity: behold, look now, Ye are all thy people.
10 The cities of thy holy place were desert; Zion was a desert., Jerusalem a desolation.
11 The house of our holy place and our glory where our fathers praised thee, was for a burning of fire, and all our precious things were for desolation.
12 For these wilt thou refrain thyself, O Jehovah? wilt thou be silent, and wilt thou humble us even greatly?
