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?

Isaiah 64 (KJVS)

[1] Oh that thou wouldest rend () the heavens , that thou wouldest come down (), that the mountains might flow down () at thy presence ,
[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 !
[3] When thou didst () terrible things () [which] we looked () not for, thou camest down (), the mountains flowed down () at thy presence .
[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.
[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 ().
[6] But we are all as an unclean [thing], and all our righteousnesses [are] as filthy rags ; and we all do fade () (8676) () as a leaf ; and our iniquities , like the wind , have taken us away ().
[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 .
[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 .
[9] Be not wroth () very sore , O LORD , neither remember () iniquity for ever : behold, see (), we beseech thee, we [are] all thy people .
[10] Thy holy cities are a wilderness , Zion is a wilderness , Jerusalem a desolation .
[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 .
[12] Wilt thou refrain () thyself for these [things], O LORD ? wilt thou hold thy peace (), and afflict () us very sore ?

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!’
