Isaiah 64
Good News Translation
64Why don't you tear the sky open and come down? The mountains would see you and shake with fear.H3863H7167H8064H3381H2022H2151H6440 2They would tremble like water boiling over a hot fire. Come and reveal your power to your enemies, and make the nations tremble at your presence!H2003H784H6919H784H4325H1158H8034H3045H6862H1471H7264H6440 3There was a time when you came and did terrifying things that we did not expect; the mountains saw you and shook with fear.H6213H3372H6960H3381H2022H2151H6440 4No one has ever seen or heard of a God like you, who does such deeds for those who put their hope in him.H5769H8085H238H5869H7200H430H2108H6213H2442 5You welcome those who find joy in doing what is right, those who remember how you want them to live. You were angry with us, but we went on sinning; in spite of your great anger we have continued to do wrong since ancient times.H6293H7797H6213H6664H2142H1870H7107H2398H5769H3467 6All of us have been sinful; even our best actions are filthy through and through. Because of our sins we are like leaves that wither and are blown away by the wind.H2931H6666H5708H899H5034H1101H5929H5771H7307H5375 7No one turns to you in prayer; no one goes to you for help. You have hidden yourself from us and have abandoned us because of our sins.H7121H8034H5782H2388H5641H6440H4127H3027H5771 8But you are our father, LORD. We are like clay, and you are like the potter. You created us,H3068H1H2563H3335H4639H3027 9so do not be too angry with us or hold our sins against us forever. We are your people; be merciful to us.H7107H3966H3068H2142H5771H5703H5027H5971 10Your sacred cities are like a desert; Jerusalem is a deserted ruin,H6944H5892H4057H6726H4057H3389H8077 11and our Temple, the sacred and beautiful place where our ancestors praised you, has been destroyed by fire. All the places we loved are in ruins.H6944H8597H1004H1H1984H8316H784H4261H2723 12LORD, are you unmoved by all this? Are you going to do nothing and make us suffer more than we can endure?H662H3068H2814H6031H3966
