Go to Commentary on Isa 64
 

 1 Oh that you would tear the heavens open,

 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 waters to boil;

 to make your name known to your adversaries,

 that the nations may tremble at your presence!

 

 3 When you did awesome things

 that we didn’t look for,

 you came down,

 the mountains quaked at your presence.

 

 4 For from of old men have not heard,

 nor perceived by the ear,

 neither has the eye seen a God besides you,

 who works for him who waits for him.

 

 5 You meet him who rejoices in doing righteousness,

 those who remember you in your ways.

 Behold, you were angry, and we sinned.

 We have been in sin for a long time,

 and will we be saved?

 

 6 For we have all become as one who is unclean,

 and all our righteousness is as a polluted garment:

 and we all fade as a leaf,

 and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.

 

 7 There is none who calls on your name,

 who stirs up himself 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,

 and we all are the work of your hand.

 

 9 Do not be furious, Yahweh,

 neither remember iniquity forever;

 see, look, we beg you, we are all your people.

 

 10 Your holy cities are 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,

 and all our pleasant places are laid waste.

 

 12 Will you refrain yourself for these things, Yahweh?

 Will you hold your peace and afflict us very severely?
