Prayer for Mercy and Help1 ▼
▼ Ch 63:19b in HebOh, that You would rend the heavens and b come down,
That the mountains might c quake at Your presence—
▼ Ch 64:1 in HebAs fire kindles the brushwood, as fire causes water to boil—
To make Your name known to Your adversaries,
That the e nations may tremble at Your presence!
3 When You did f awesome things which we did not expect,
You came down, the mountains quaked at Your presence.
4 For from days of old g they have not heard or perceived by ear,
Nor has the eye seen a God besides You,
Who acts in behalf of the one who h waits for Him.
5 You i meet him who rejoices in j doing righteousness,
Who k remembers You in Your ways.
Behold l You were angry, for we sinned,
We continued in them a long time;
And shall we be saved?
6 For all of us have become like one who is m unclean,
And all our n righteous deeds are like a filthy garment;
And all of us o wither like a leaf,
And our p iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
7 There is q no one who calls on Your name,
Who arouses himself to take hold of You;
For You have r hidden Your face from us
And have ▼

8 But now, O Lord t You are our Father,
We are the u clay, and You our potter;
And all of us are the v work of Your hand.
9 Do not be w angry beyond measure, O Lord,
x Nor remember iniquity forever;
Behold, look now, all of us are y Your people.
10 Your z holy cities have become a aa wilderness,
Zion has become a wilderness,
Jerusalem a desolation.
11 Our holy and beautiful ab house,
Where our fathers praised You,
Has been burned by fire;
And ac all our precious things have become a ruin.
12 Will You ad restrain Yourself at these things, O Lord?
Will You keep silent and afflict us beyond measure?
