63:16   Though Avraham regard us not, and Yisrael recognize us not

In this verse, the Jewish people turn to Hashem as their redeemer. At times, they feel that they are entitled to divine privilege on the mere basis of their descent from Avraham and Yaakov. However, they now renounce this with the realization that their forefathers, however righteous they were and through whom they were privileged to dwell in the land, could not intercede with Hashem when they sinned and were punished. They had to personally learn to trust in God alone as their Father. With this new understanding and trust in Hashem, they will merit to return to the land.
