New International Version
We are yours from of old; but you have not ruled over them, they have not been called by your name.
King James Bible
We are thine: thou never barest rule over them; they were not called by thy name.
Darby Bible Translation
We have become [like those] over whom thou never barest rule, those not called by thy name.
World English Bible
We have become as they over whom you never bear rule, as those who were not called by your name.
Young's Literal Translation
We have been from of old, Thou hast not ruled over them, Not called is Thy name upon them!
Isaiah 63:19 Parallel

Some Man May Say: "If There be not in the Dead any Care For...
that the rest of mankind may seek the Lord, even all the Gentiles who bear my name, says the Lord, who does these things' --
For a little while your people possessed your holy place, but now our enemies have trampled down your sanctuary.
Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before you!
"I revealed myself to those who did not ask for me; I was found by those who did not seek me. To a nation that did not call on my name, I said, 'Here am I, here am I.'
Why are you like a man taken by surprise, like a warrior powerless to save? You are among us, LORD, and we bear your name; do not forsake us!
