Isaiah 64:5-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

We have all become like something unclean,
    all our just deeds are like polluted rags;
We have all withered like leaves,
    and our crimes carry us away like the wind.
There are none who call upon your name,
    none who rouse themselves to take hold of you;
For you have hidden your face from us
    and have delivered us up to our crimes.

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.


  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.”
