NASB — Isaiah 64 — KJV

Prayer for Mercy and Help

  1 IOh, that You would rend the heavens [and] acome down,
  That the mountains might bquake at Your presence
  2 IAs fire kindles the brushwood, [as] fire causes water to boil
  To make Your name known to Your adversaries,
  [That] the anations may tremble at Your presence!
  3 When You did aawesome things which we did not expect,
  You came down, the mountains quaked at Your presence.
  4 For from days of old athey have not heard or perceived by ear,
  Nor has the eye seen a God besides You,
  Who acts in behalf of the one who bwaits for Him.
  5 You ameet him who rejoices in bdoing righteousness,
  Who cremembers You in Your ways.
  Behold, dYou were angry, for we sinned,
  [We continued] in them a long time;
  And shall we be saved?
  6 For all of us have become like one who is aunclean,
  And all our brighteous deeds are like a filthy garment;
  And all of us cwither like a leaf,
  And our diniquities, like the wind, take us away.
  7 There is ano one who calls on Your name,
  Who arouses himself to take hold of You;
  For You have bhidden Your face from us
  And have Idelivered us into the power of our iniquities.

  Will You keep silent and afflict us beyond measure?

The Church prayeth for the illustration of God's power.

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.

Celebrating God's mercy, it maketh confession of their natural corruptions.

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 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.

It complaineth of their affliction.

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?
