Isaiah 63

1 Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah, this One adorned in His apparel, flexing His great strength? I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
2 Why is Your apparel red, and Your garments like one who treads in the winepress?
3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the peoples there was no one with Me; for I tread them in My anger and trample them in My fury, and their blood is sprinkled on My garments, and I have stained all My apparel.
4 For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come.
5 And I looked, and there was no one to help; and I wondered that there was no one to uphold; therefore My own arm has given victory for Me; and My fury sustained Me.
6 And I will tread down the people in My anger, and make them drunk in My fury, and I will bring down their blood to the earth.
7 I will mention the lovingkindnesses of Jehovah, the praises of Jehovah, according to all that Jehovah has bestowed upon us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel which He has bestowed upon them according to His mercies, and according to the multitude of His lovingkindnesses.
8 For He said, Surely they are My people, children that will not lie; so He was their Savior.
9 In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence saved them; in His love and in His pity He redeemed them; and He bore them, and carried them all the days of old.
10 But they rebelled, and grieved His Holy Spirit; therefore He changed, to be their enemy, and He fought against them.
11 Then He remembered the days of old, Moses and His people, saying, Where is He who brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of His flock? Where is He who put His Holy Spirit within him;
12 who led them by the right hand of Moses with His glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make for Himself an everlasting name?
13 He led them through the deep, like a horse in the wilderness, so that they might not stumble.
14 As a beast goes down into the valley, the Spirit of Jehovah caused him to rest. So You led Your people, to make for Yourself a glorious name.
15 Look down from Heaven, and look down from the place of Your holiness and of Your glory. Where is Your zeal and Your strength, the multitude of Your tender affections and of Your mercies toward me? Are they restrained?
16 Indeed, You are our Father, though Abraham does not know us, and Israel does not acknowledge us. You, O Jehovah, are our Father, our Redeemer; Your name is from everlasting.
17 O Jehovah, why have You made us wander from Your ways, and hardened our heart from Your fear? For the sake of Your servants, return the tribes of Your inheritance.
18 The people of Your holiness have possessed it but a little while; our enemies have trampled Your sanctuary.
19 We are from antiquity; You never ruled over them; they were never called by Your name.
