Isaiah 642 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 terrible things which we did not expect, You came down; the mountains quaked at Your presence. 4 For from of old no one has heard nor perceived by the ear, nor has the eye seen a God besides You, Who works and shows Himself active on behalf of him who waits for Him. 5 You meet and spare him who joyfully works righteousness (uprightness and justice), remembering You in Your ways. Behold, You were angry, for we sinned; we have long continued in our sins . And shall we be saved? 6 For we have all become like one who is unclean , and all our righteousness (our best deeds of rightness and justice) is like filthy rags or a polluted garment; we all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away . 7 And no one calls on Your name and awakens and bestirs himself to take and keep hold of You; for You have hidden Your face from us and have delivered us into the power of our iniquities. 8 Yet, O Lord, 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 exceedingly angry, O Lord, or remember iniquity forever. Behold, consider, we beseech 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, and all our pleasant and desirable places are in ruins. 12 Considering these , will You restrain Yourself, O Lord ? Will You keep silent and not command our deliverance but humble and afflict us exceedingly?
