1

Oh that you would rend the heavens, that you would come down, that the mountains might flow down at your presence,

2

As when the melting fire burns, the fire causes the waters to boil, to make your name known to yours adversaries, that the nations may tremble at your presence!

3

When you did terrible things which we looked not for, you came down, the mountains flowed down at your presence.

4

For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither has the eye seen, O God, beside you, what he has prepared for him that waits for him.

5

You meet him that rejoices and works righteousness, those that remember you in your ways: behold, you are angry; 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 calls upon your name, that stirs up himself to take hold of you: for you have hid your face from us, and have consumed us, because of our iniquities.

8

But now, O LORD, you are our father; we are the clay, and you our potter; and we all are the work of your hand.

9

Be not angry very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we plead to you, we are all your people.

10

Your holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.

11

Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised you, is burned up with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid waste.

12

Will you refrain yourself for these things, O LORD? will you hold your peace, and afflict us very sore?
