Noah Webster's Bible 1833

 

   

64:1Oh that thou wouldst rend the heavens, that thou wouldst come down, that the mountains might flow down at thy presence,
64:2As when the melting fire burneth, the fire causeth the waters to boil, to make thy name known to thy adversaries, that the nations may tremble at thy presence!
64:3When thou didst terrible things which we looked not for, thou camest down, the mountains flowed down at thy presence.
64:4For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, besides thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.
64:5Thou 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.
64:6But 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.
64:7And 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.
64:8But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
64:9Be not very wroth, O LORD, neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.
64:10Thy holy cities are a wilderness, Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.
64:11Our holy and our beautiful house, where our fathers praised thee, is burned with fire: and all our pleasant things are laid waste.
64:12Wilt thou refrain thyself for these things, O LORD? wilt thou hold thy peace, and grievously afflict us?

Noah Webster's Bible 1833

While Noah Webster, just a few years after producing his famous Dictionary of the English Language, produced his own modern translation of the English Bible in 1833; the public remained too loyal to the King James Version for Webster’s version to have much impact.
