Isaiah 64

CEB 1 If only you would tear open the heavens and come down! Mountains would quake before you NRS 1 O that you would tear open the heavens and come down, so that the mountains would quake at your presence— CEB 2 like fire igniting brushwood or making water boil. If you would make your name known to your enemies, the nations would tremble in your presence. NRS 2 as when fire kindles brushwood and the fire causes water to boil— to make your name known to your adversaries, so that the nations might tremble at your presence! CEB 3 When you accomplished wonders beyond all our expectations; when you came down, mountains quaked before you. NRS 3 When you did awesome deeds that we did not expect, you came down, the mountains quaked at your presence. CEB 4 From ancient times, no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any god but you who acts on behalf of those who wait for him! NRS 4 From ages past no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who works for those who wait for him. CEB 5 You look after those who gladly do right; they will praise you for your ways. But you were angry when we sinned; you hid yourself when we did wrong. NRS 5 You meet those who gladly do right, those who remember you in your ways. But you were angry, and we sinned; because you hid yourself we transgressed. CEB 6 We have all become like the unclean; all our righteous deeds are like a menstrual rag. All of us wither like a leaf; our sins, like the wind, carry us away. NRS 6 We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a filthy cloth. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. CEB 7 No one calls on your name; no one bothers to hold on to you, for you have hidden yourself from us, and have handed us over to our sin. NRS 7 There is no one who calls on your name, or attempts to take hold of you; for you have hidden your face from us, and have delivered us into the hand of our iniquity. CEB 8 But now, LORD, you are our father. We are the clay, and you are our potter. All of us are the work of your hand. NRS 8 Yet, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. CEB 9 Don't rage so fiercely, LORD; don't hold our sins against us forever, but gaze now on your people, all of us: NRS 9 Do not be exceedingly angry, O Lord, and do not remember iniquity forever. Now consider, we are all your people. CEB 10 Your holy cities have become a wilderness; Zion has become a wilderness, Jerusalem a wasteland. NRS 10 Your holy cities have become a wilderness, Zion has become a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation. CEB 11 Our holy, glorious house, where our ancestors praised you, has gone up in flames; all that we treasured has become a ruin. NRS 11 Our holy and beautiful house, where our ancestors praised you, has been burned by fire, and all our pleasant places have become ruins. CEB 12 After all this, will you hold back, LORD? Will you keep silent and torment us so terribly? NRS 12 After all this, will you restrain yourself, O Lord? Will you keep silent, and punish us so severely?
