Isaiah 64:1-12


64O that you would tear open the heavens and come down,
   so that the mountains would quake at your presence— 
2 *as when fire kindles brushwood
   and the fire causes water to boil—
to make your name known to your adversaries,
   so that the nations might tremble at your presence! 
3 When you did awesome deeds that we did not expect,
   you came down, the mountains quaked at your presence. 
4 From ages past no one has heard,
   no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
   who works for those who wait for him. 
5 You meet those who gladly do right,
   those who remember you in your ways.
But you were angry, and we sinned;
   because you hid yourself we transgressed.* 
6 We have all become like one who is unclean,
   and all our righteous deeds are like a filthy cloth.
We all fade like a leaf,
   and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away. 
7 There is no one who calls on your name,
   or attempts to take hold of you;
for you have hidden your face from us,
   and have delivered* us into the hand of our iniquity. 
8 Yet, O Lord, you are our Father;
   we are the clay, and you are our potter;
   we are all the work of your hand. 
9 Do not be exceedingly angry, O Lord,
   and do not remember iniquity forever.
   Now consider, we are all your people. 
10 Your holy cities have become a wilderness,
   Zion has become a wilderness,
   Jerusalem a desolation. 
11 Our holy and beautiful house,
   where our ancestors praised you,
has been burned by fire,
   and all our pleasant places have become ruins. 
12 After all this, will you restrain yourself, O Lord?
   Will you keep silent, and punish us so severely?

Amos 5: 18-24


18 Alas for you who desire the day of the Lord!
   Why do you want the day of the Lord?
It is darkness, not light; 
19   as if someone fled from a lion,
   and was met by a bear;
or went into the house and rested a hand against the wall,
   and was bitten by a snake. 
20 Is not the day of the Lord darkness, not light,
   and gloom with no brightness in it? 


21 I hate, I despise your festivals,
   and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies. 
22 Even though you offer me your burnt-offerings and grain-offerings,
   I will not accept them;
and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals
   I will not look upon. 
23 Take away from me the noise of your songs;
   I will not listen to the melody of your harps. 
24 But let justice roll down like waters,
   and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
