64 Pihaka ang langit, Ginoo, kag magpanaog ka, kag magatay-og ang mga bukid sa imo presensya. Subong nga ang kalayo nagapadukot sang mga sanga nga laya kag nagapabukal sang tubig, ang imo pag-abot magapakurog sa mga nasyon nga imo mga kaaway, kag makilala nila kon sin-o ka. Sang nagpanaog ka sang una kag naghimo sang makatilingala nga mga butang nga wala namon ginpaabot, nagkurog ang mga bukid sa imo presensya. Halin sang una hasta subong wala pa gid sing may nakabati ukon may nakakita sang Dios nga pareho sa imo nga nagabulig sa mga nagasalig sa iya. Ginabaton mo ang nagakalipay sa paghimo sang matarong kag nagasunod sang imo mga pamaagi. Pero naakig ka sa amon kay padayon kami nga nagasupak sa imo mga pamaagi. Gani paano kami maluwas? Nangin pareho kami tanan sa mahigko nga butang, kag ang tanan namon nga maayo nga mga binuhatan daw pareho lang sa mahigko nga panapton. Pareho kami tanan sa dahon nga nalaya, kag ang amon kalautan pareho sa hangin nga nagapalid sa amon. Wala gid sing bisan isa sa amon nga nagadangop sa imo kag nagapaninguha sa pagkapot sa imo. Kay nagtalikod ka sa amon, kag ginpabay-an mo kami nga magkalamatay[a] tungod sa amon mga sala. Pero sa gihapon ikaw ang amon Amay, Ginoo. Pareho ka sa manughimo sang kolon, kag kami pareho sa lunang. Ikaw ang naghimo sa amon tanan. Ginoo, indi pagpatam-i ang imo kaakig sa amon; indi pagdumduma ang amon mga sala hasta san-o. Nagapangabay kami sa imo nga talupangdon mo kami, kay kami tanan imo katawhan. 10 Ang imo balaan nga mga banwa, pati ang Jerusalem, nangin pareho sa kamingawan nga wala sing may nagaestar. 11 Nasunog ang amon balaan kag matahom nga templo, nga sa diin ginasimba ka sang amon mga katigulangan. Naguba ang tanan nga butang nga amon ginpakamahal. 12 Bisan pa sa sining tanan, indi mo pa gihapon kami pagbuligan, Ginoo? Maghipos ka na lang bala, kag patam-an mo na lang bala kami sang silot?


  1. 64:7 magkalamatay: sa literal, magkalatunaw.

64 [a]Oh, that you would rend the heavens(A) and come down,(B)
    that the mountains(C) would tremble before you!
As when fire sets twigs ablaze
    and causes water to boil,
come down to make your name(D) known to your enemies
    and cause the nations to quake(E) before you!
For when you did awesome(F) things that we did not expect,
    you came down, and the mountains trembled(G) before you.
Since ancient times no one has heard,
    no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,(H)
    who acts on behalf of those who wait for him.(I)
You come to the help of those who gladly do right,(J)
    who remember your ways.
But when we continued to sin against them,
    you were angry.(K)
    How then can we be saved?
All of us have become like one who is unclean,(L)
    and all our righteous(M) acts are like filthy rags;
we all shrivel up like a leaf,(N)
    and like the wind our sins sweep us away.(O)
No one(P) calls on your name(Q)
    or strives to lay hold of you;
for you have hidden(R) your face from us
    and have given us over(S) to[b] our sins.

Yet you, Lord, are our Father.(T)
    We are the clay, you are the potter;(U)
    we are all the work of your hand.(V)
Do not be angry(W) beyond measure, Lord;
    do not remember our sins(X) forever.
Oh, look on us, we pray,
    for we are all your people.(Y)
10 Your sacred cities(Z) have become a wasteland;
    even Zion is a wasteland, Jerusalem a desolation.(AA)
11 Our holy and glorious temple,(AB) where our ancestors praised you,
    has been burned with fire,
    and all that we treasured(AC) lies in ruins.
12 After all this, Lord, will you hold yourself back?(AD)
    Will you keep silent(AE) and punish us beyond measure?


  1. Isaiah 64:1 In Hebrew texts 64:1 is numbered 63:19b, and 64:2-12 is numbered 64:1-11.
  2. Isaiah 64:7 Septuagint, Syriac and Targum; Hebrew have made us melt because of

64 Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,

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!

When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
