Isaiah 64:7-9 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

A Final Plea

[a]Yet, Lord, you are our father;
    we are the clay and you our potter:
    we are all the work of your hand.
Do not be so very angry, Lord,
    do not remember our crimes forever;
    look upon us, who are all your people!
Your holy cities have become a wilderness;
    Zion has become wilderness, Jerusalem desolation!


  1. 64:7–11 The motifs of father (63:16) and creator (clay and potter, 29:16; 45:9) are adduced to move the Lord to action in view of the damage done to his “holy cities” and “glorious house.”
