Prayer to creative Yahweh (Isa 64:8-64:9)

“Yet

O Yahweh!

You are our Father!

We are the clay,

You are our potter.

We are all the work of your hands.

Do not be exceedingly angry!

O Yahweh!

Do not remember iniquity forever!

Now consider!

We are all your people.”

The prophet was clear. Humans were like clay in the hands of the great potter, Yahweh. All humans were the work of his hands. He wanted his Father Yahweh not to be too angry. He wanted Yahweh not to remember forever the iniquities that had been done. He wanted Yahweh to remember only that they were his people, created by him, the great artist.
