Isaiah 64

1If you would open the heaven, trembling will take hold upon the mountains from You, and they shall melt, 2as wax melts before the fire; and fire shall burn up the enemies, and Your name shall be manifest among the adversaries; at Your presence the nations shall be troubled, 3whenever You shall work gloriously; trembling from You shall take hold upon the mountains. 4From of old we have not heard, neither have our eyes seen a God besides You, and Your works which You will perform to them that wait for mercy. 5For these blessings shall happen to them that work righteousness, and they shall remember Your ways; behold, You were angry and we have sinned; therefore we have erred, 6and we have all become as unclean, and all our righteousness is as a filthy rag; and we have fallen as leaves because of our iniquities; thus the wind shall carry us away. 7And there is none that calls upon Your name, or that remembers to take hold of You; for You have turned Your face away from us, and have delivered us up because of our sins. 8And now, O Lord, You are our Father, and we are clay, all of us the work of Your hands. 9Be not very angry with us, and remember not our sins forever; but now look on us, for we are all Your people. 10The city of Your holiness has become desolate, Zion has become as a wilderness, Jerusalem a curse. 11The house, our sanctuary, and the glory which our fathers blessed, has been burned with fire; and all our glorious things have gone to ruin. 12And for all these things You, O Lord, have withheld Yourself, and have been silent, and have brought us very low.
