Isaiah 64
Smith's Literal Translation Par ▾ 

A Prayer for God’s Power

1Would that thou didst rend the heavens; thou camest down; the mountains flowed from before thee.

2As 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.

3In thy doing wonderful things we shall not expect, thou camest down, the mountains flowed from before thee.

4From forever they heard not, they gave not ear, the eye saw not, O God, besides thee, he will do to him waiting for him.

5Thou 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.

6And 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.

7And 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.

8And now, O Jehovah, thou our Father; we the clay and thou forming us; and we all the work of thy hand.

9Thou wilt not be angry, O Jehovah, even greatly, and not forever wilt thou remember iniquity: behold, look now, Ye are all thy people.

10The cities of thy holy place were desert; Zion was a desert, Jerusalem a desolation.

11The 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.

12For these wilt thou refrain thyself, O Jehovah? wilt thou be silent, and wilt thou humble us even greatly?
