Isaiah 64:7-9 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

No one worships in your name
    or remains faithful.
You have turned your back on us
and let our sins melt us away.[a]

You, Lord, are our Father.
    We are nothing but clay,
but you are the potter
    who molded us.
Don’t be so furious
or keep our sins
    in your thoughts forever!
Remember that all of us
    are your people.

Isaiah 64:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

No one calls on your name
    or strives to lay hold of you;
for you have hidden your face from us
    and have given us over to[a] our sins.

Yet you, Lord, are our Father.
    We are the clay, you are the potter;
    we are all the work of your hand.
Do not be angry beyond measure, Lord;
    do not remember our sins forever.
Oh, look on us, we pray,
    for we are all your people.
