The book of the prophet Isaiah, chapter 64, Vulgate and King James Version

Chapter 64


   1 Sicut ignis succendit sarmenta, aquam ebullire facit ignis, ut notum facias nomen tuum inimicis tuis, a facie tua gentes turbentur,
   2 cum feceris mirabilia, quae non sperabamus. Descendisti, et a facie tua montes defluxerunt.
   3 A saeculo non audierunt, neque aures perceperunt; oculus non vidit Deum, absque te, qui operaretur pro sperantibus in eum.
   4 Occurris laetanti, facienti iustitiam et his, qui in viis tuis recordantur tui. Ecce tu iratus es, et peccavimus; in ipsis a saeculo nos salvabimur.
   5 Et facti sumus ut immundus omnes nos, et quasi pannus inquinatus universae iustitiae nostrae; et marcuimus quasi folium universi, et iniquitates nostrae quasi ventus abstulerunt nos.
   6 Non est qui invocet nomen tuum, qui consurgat et adhaereat tibi, quia abscondisti faciem tuam a nobis et dissolvisti nos in manu iniquitatis nostrae.
   7 Et nunc, Domine, pater noster es tu, nos vero lutum; et fictor noster tu, et opera manuum tuarum omnes nos.
   8 Ne irascaris, Domine, nimis et ne ultra memineris iniquitatis; ecce, respice: populus tuus omnes nos.
   9 Urbes sanctitatis tuae factae sunt in desertum, Sion deserta facta est, Ierusalem desolata est.
   10 Domus sanctitatis nostrae et gloriae nostrae, ubi laudaverunt te patres nostri, facta est in exustionem ignis, et omnia desiderabilia nostra versa sunt in ruinas.
   11 Numquid super his continebis te, Domine, tacebis et affliges nos vehementer?

King James Version

   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.
   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.
   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?
