Isaiah Chapter 64
64:1 Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come
down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,
64:2 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!
64:3 When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou
camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.
64:4 For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor
perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee,
what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.
64:5 Thou meetest him that rejoiceth and worketh righteousness, those
that remember thee in thy ways: behold, thou art wroth; for we have
sinned: in those is continuance, and we shall be saved.
64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are
as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like
the wind, have taken us away.
64:7 And there 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
hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.
64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our
potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
64:9 Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever:
behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.
64:10 Thy holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem
64:11 Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised thee,
is burned up with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid waste.
64:12 Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O LORD? wilt thou hold
thy peace, and afflict us very sore?
