Isaiah 60: 9 All the vessels of the sea are assembled, with the ships of Tarshish in the lead, to bring your children from afar with their silver and gold, in the Name of the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, who has glorified you.
Isaiah 63: 13 through 64:6 Who led them without stumbling through the depths like horses in the open country, like cattle going down into the plain, the Spirit of the LORD guiding them? Thus You led Your people, bringing glory to Your Name. Look down from heaven and regard us from Your holy and glorious palace! Where is Your zealous care and Your might, Your surge of pity and Your mercy? O LORD, hold not back, for You are our Father. Were Abraham not to know us, nor Israel to acknowledge us, You, LORD, are our Father, our Redeemer You are named forever.
Why do You let us wander, O LORD, from Your ways and harden our hearts so that we fear You not? Return for the sake of Your servants, the tribes of Your heritage. Why have the wicked invaded Your holy place, why have our enemies trampled Your sanctuary? Too long have we been like those You do not rule, who do not bear Your Name.
Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down, with the mountains quaking before You, as when brushwood is set ablaze, or fire makes the water boil! Thus Your Name would be made known to Your enemies and the nations would tremble before You.
While You wrought awesome deeds we could not hope for, such as they have not heard of from of old. No ear has ever heard, no eye ever seen, any God but You doing such deeds for those who wait for Him.
Would that You might meet us doing right, that we were mindful of You in our ways! Behold, You are angry, and we are sinful; all of us have become like unclean men, all our good deeds are like polluted rags; We have all withered like leaves, and our guilt carries us away like the wind. There is none who calls upon Your Name, who rouses himself to cling to You; For You have hidden Your face from us and have delivered us up to our guilt.

Isaiah 65:1 (The LORD’s response) I was ready to respond to those who asked Me not, to be found by those who sought Me not. I said: Here I am! Here I am! to a nation that did not call upon My Name.

Isaiah 66:5 Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at His word: your brethren who, because of My Name, hate and reject you, say, “Let the LORD show His glory that we may see your joy”; but they shall be put to shame.
