1 Oh that you would tear the heavens, that you would come down,
that the mountains might quake at your presence, 2 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 awesome
things which we didn't look for, you came down, the mountains
quaked at your presence. 4 For from of old men have not
heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither has the eye seen a God
besides you, who works for him who waits for him. 5 You meet
him who rejoices and works righteousness, those who remember you
in your ways. Behold, you were angry, and we sinned. We have been
in sin for a long time; and shall we be saved? 6 For we have
all become as one who is unclean, and all our righteousness is as
a polluted garment: and we all fade as a leaf; and our
iniquities, like the wind, take us away. 7 There is none who
calls on your name, who stirs up himself to take hold of you; for
you have hid your face from us, and have consumed us by means of
our iniquities.

8 But now, Yahweh, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you
our potter; and we all are the work of your hand. 9 Don't be
furious, Yahweh, neither remember iniquity forever: see, look, we
beg you, we are all your people. 10 Your holy cities are
become a wilderness, Zion is 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
places are laid waste. 12 Will you refrain yourself for
these things, Yahweh? will you hold your peace, and afflict us
very sore?
