The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 64 (Latin)
1Oh that thou wouldest rend the heavens, that thou wouldest come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,
2As 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!
3When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.
4For 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.
5Thou 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.
6But 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.
7And 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.
8But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
9Be not wroth very sore, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.
10Thy holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.
11Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised thee, is burned up with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid waste.
12Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O LORD? wilt thou hold thy peace, and afflict us very sore?
1utinam disrumperes caelos et descenderes a facie tua montes defluerent
2sicut exustio ignis tabescerent aquae arderent igni ut notum fieret nomen tuum inimicis tuis a facie tua gentes turbarentur
3cum feceris mirabilia non sustinebimus descendisti et a facie tua montes defluxerunt
4a saeculo non audierunt neque auribus perceperunt oculus non vidit Deus absque te quae praeparasti expectantibus te
5occurristi laetanti et facienti iustitiam in viis tuis recordabuntur tui ecce tu iratus es et peccavimus in ipsis fuimus semper et salvabimur
6et facti sumus ut inmundus omnes nos quasi pannus menstruatae universae iustitiae nostrae et cecidimus quasi folium universi et iniquitates nostrae quasi ventus abstulerunt nos
7non est qui invocet nomen tuum qui consurgat et teneat te abscondisti faciem tuam a nobis et adlisisti nos in manu iniquitatis nostrae
8et nunc Domine pater noster es tu nos vero lutum et fictor noster et opera manuum tuarum omnes nos
9ne irascaris Domine satis et ne ultra memineris iniquitatis ecce respice populus tuus omnes nos
10civitas sancti tui facta est deserta Sion deserta facta est Hierusalem desolata
11domus sanctificationis nostrae et gloriae nostrae ubi laudaverunt te patres nostri facta est in exustionem ignis et omnia desiderabilia nostra versa sunt in ruinas
12numquid super his continebis te Domine tacebis et adfliges nos vehementer
