Isaiah 63:16-18 Living Bible (TLB)
16 Surely you are still our Father! Even if Abraham and Jacob would disown us, still you would be our Father, our Redeemer from ages past. 17 O Lord, why have you hardened our hearts and made us sin and turn against you? Return and help us, for we who belong to you need you so.[a] 18 How briefly we possessed Jerusalem! And now our enemies have destroyed her.
