1 Rip the heavens apart!
Come down, Lord;
make the mountains tremble.
64 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
1 Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,
2 Be a spark that starts a fire
causing water to boil.
m 64.2 Be ... boil: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.
Then your enemies will know
who you are;
all nations will tremble
because you are nearby.
2 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!
the melting...: Heb. the fire of meltings

3 Your fearsome deeds
have completely amazed us;
even the mountains shake
when you come down.
3 When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.
4 You are the only God
64.4 1Co 2.9.
ever seen or heard of
who works miracles
for his followers.
4 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.
seen...: or, seen a God beside thee, which doeth so for him, etc

5 You help all who gladly obey
and do what you want,
but sin makes you angry.
Only by your help
can we ever be saved.
n 64.5 saved: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text of verse 5.
5 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.
6 We are unfit to worship you;
each of our good deeds
is merely a filthy rag.
We dry up like leaves;
our sins are storm winds
sweeping us away.
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 No one worships in your name
or remains faithful.
You have turned your back on us
and let our sins melt us away.
o 64.7 and let ... away: One possible meaning for the difficult Hebrew text.
7 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.
consumed: Heb. melted
because: Heb. by the hand

8 You, Lord, are our Father.
We are nothing but clay,
but you are the potter
who molded us.
8 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.
9 Don't be so furious
or keep our sins
in your thoughts forever!
Remember that all of us
are your people.
9 Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.
10 Every one of your towns
has turned into a desert,
especially Jerusalem.
10 Thy holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.
11 Zion's glorious and holy temple
where our ancestors praised you
has been destroyed by fire.
Our beautiful buildings
are now a pile of ruins.
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 When you see these things,
how can you just sit there
and make us suffer more?
12 Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O LORD? wilt thou hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore?
