Morgan's Exposition on the Whole Bible

Isaiah 64

Verses 1-12

The praise and confession merge into a prayer in which the sore need of the people is first described, and then a cry full of intense anguish is lifted for the dawning of the day when Jehovah will act in judgment.

Again the prophet strengthens his own faith as he remembers how God had wrought on behalf of His people in the past. This memory of His faithfulness produces a new sense of their unfaithfulness, and he confesses sin and failure. Out of the midst of desolation and destruction he appeals to Jehovah to act on behalf of His people.
