Isaiah 64 (WEBP)

[1] Oh that you would tear the heavens, that you would come down, that the mountains might quake at your presence—
[2] as when fire kindles the brushwood, and the fire causes the water to boil. Make your name known to your adversaries, that the nations may tremble at your presence!
[3] When you did awesome things which we didn’t look for, you came down, and the mountains quaked at your presence.
[4] For from of old men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides you, who works for him who waits for him.
[5] You meet him who rejoices and does righteousness, those who remember you in your ways. Behold, you were angry, and we sinned. We have been in sin for a long time. Shall we be saved?
[6] For we have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteousness is like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.
[7] There is no one who calls on your name, who stirs himself up to take hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us, and have consumed us by means of our iniquities.
[8] But now, Yahweh, you are our Father. We are the clay and you our potter. We all are the work of your hand.
[9] Don’t be furious, Yahweh. Don’t remember iniquity forever. Look and see, we beg you, we are all your people.
[10] Your holy cities have become a wilderness. Zion has become a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.
[11] Our holy and our beautiful house where our fathers praised you is burned with fire. All our pleasant places are laid waste.
[12] Will you hold yourself back for these things, Yahweh? Will you keep silent and punish us very severely?

King James w/Strong’s #s

Isaiah 64 (KJVS)

[1] Oh H3863 that thou wouldest rend H7167 (8804) the heavens H8064, that thou wouldest come down H3381 (8804), that the mountains H2022 might flow down H2151 (8738) at thy presence H6440,
[2] As [when] the melting H2003 fire H784 burneth H6919 (8800), the fire H784 causeth the waters H4325 to boil H1158 (8799), to make thy name H8034 known H3045 (8687) to thine adversaries H6862, [that] the nations H1471 may tremble H7264 (8799) at thy presence H6440!
[3] When thou didst H6213 (8800) terrible things H3372 (8737) [which] we looked H6960 (8762) not for, thou camest down H3381 (8804), the mountains H2022 flowed down H2151 (8738) at thy presence H6440.
[4] For since the beginning of the world H5769 [men] have not heard H8085 (8804), nor perceived by the ear H238 (8689), neither hath the eye H5869 seen H7200 (8804), O God H430, beside H2108 thee, [what] he hath prepared H6213 (8799) for him that waiteth H2442 (8764) for him.
[5] Thou meetest H6293 (8804) him that rejoiceth H7797 (8801) and worketh H6213 (8802) righteousness H6664, [those that] remember H2142 (8799) thee in thy ways H1870: behold, thou art wroth H7107 (8804); for we have sinned H2398 (8799): in those is continuance H5769, and we shall be saved H3467 (8735).
[6] But we are all as an unclean H2931 [thing], and all our righteousnesses H6666 [are] as filthy H5708 rags H899; and we all do fade H5034 (8799) (8676) H1101 (8686) as a leaf H5929; and our iniquities H5771, like the wind H7307, have taken us away H5375 (8799).
[7] And [there is] none that calleth H7121 (8802) upon thy name H8034, that stirreth up H5782 (8711) himself to take hold H2388 (8687) of thee: for thou hast hid H5641 (8689) thy face H6440 from us, and hast consumed H4127 (8799) us, because H3027 of our iniquities H5771.
[8] But now, O LORD H3068, thou [art] our father H1; we [are] the clay H2563, and thou our potter H3335 (8802); and we all [are] the work H4639 of thy hand H3027.
[9] Be not wroth H7107 (8799) very sore H3966, O LORD H3068, neither remember H2142 (8799) iniquity H5771 for ever H5703: behold, see H5027 (8685), we beseech thee, we [are] all thy people H5971.
[10] Thy holy H6944 cities H5892 are a wilderness H4057, Zion H6726 is a wilderness H4057, Jerusalem H3389 a desolation H8077.
[11] Our holy H6944 and our beautiful H8597 house H1004, where our fathers H1 praised H1984 (8765) thee, is burned up H8316 with fire H784: and all our pleasant things H4261 are laid waste H2723.
[12] Wilt thou refrain H662 (8691) thyself for these [things], O LORD H3068? wilt thou hold thy peace H2814 (8799), and afflict H6031 (8762) us very sore H3966?

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 64 (YLT)

[1] Didst Thou not rend the heavens? Thou didst come down, From thy presence did mountains flow,
[2] (As fire kindleth stubble- Fire causeth water to boil,) To make known Thy name to Thine adversaries, From Thy presence do nations tremble.
[3] In Thy doing fearful things-we expect not, Thou didst come down, From Thy presence did mountains flow.
[4] Even from antiquity men have not heard, They have not given ear, Eye hath not seen a God save Thee, He doth work for those waiting for Him.
[5] Thou hast met with the rejoicer And the doer of righteousness, In Thy ways they remember Thee, Lo, Thou hast been wroth when we sin, By them is continuance, and we are saved.
[6] And we are as unclean-all of us, And as a garment passing away, all our righteous acts; And we fade as a leaf-all of us. And our iniquities as wind do take us away.
[7] And there is none calling in Thy name, Stirring up himself to lay hold on Thee, For Thou hast hid Thy face from us, And thou meltest us away by our iniquities.
[8] And now, O Jehovah, thou art our Father, We are the clay, and Thou our Framer, And the work of Thy hand-all of us.
[9] Be not wroth, O Jehovah, very sore, Nor for ever remember iniquity, Lo, look attentively, we beseech Thee, Thy people are we all.
[10] Thy holy cities have been a wilderness, Zion a wilderness hath been, Jerusalem a desolation.
[11] Our holy and our beautiful house, Where praise Thee did our fathers, Hath become burnt with fire, And all our desirable things have become a waste.
[12] For these dost Thou refrain Thyself, Jehovah? Thou art silent, and dost afflict us very sore!’
