that the mountains might shake at Your presence,

and shall we be saved?
6#Ps 90:5–6; Isa 6:5 But we all are as an unclean thing,

nor remember iniquity forever;
look upon us, we pray,
we all are Your people.

Zion is a wilderness, Jerusalem a desolation.

is burned up with fire;
and all our precious things are laid waste.
