Go to Commentary on Isa 63

 1 Who is this who comes from Edom,

 in crimson-stained garments from Bozrah?

 This one who is glorious in his apparel,

 striding confidently in the greatness of his strength?

 “It is I, speaking in righteousness,

 mighty to save.”


Why is your clothing red

 and your garments like him who treads in the wine vat?


“I have trampled the winepress alone,

 and of the peoples there was no man with me;

 yes, I trampled them in my anger,

 and trampled them in my wrath,

 and their lifeblood is sprinkled on my garments,

 and I have stained all my clothing.


 4 For the day of vengeance was in my heart,

 and the year of my redeemed has come.


 5 I looked, and there was none to help,

 and I wondered that there was none to uphold;

 therefore my own arm brought salvation to me,

 and my wrath, it upheld me.


 6 I trod down the peoples in my anger

 and made them drunk in my wrath,

 and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”


I will make mention of the covenant faithfulness of Yahweh

 and the praises of Yahweh

 according to all that Yahweh has bestowed on us,

 and the great goodness toward the house of Israel

 that he has bestowed on them according to his mercies

 and according to the greatness of his covenant faithfulness.


 8 For he said, “Surely, they are my people,

 children who will not deal falsely,”

 so he became 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 turned himself to become their enemy,

 and he himself 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 shepherds of his flock?

 Where is he who put within them his holy spirit,


 12 who caused his glorious arm

 to go at the right hand of Moses?

 The one who divided the waters before them

 to make himself an everlasting name,


 13 who led them through the depths

 as a horse in the wilderness,

 so that they did not stumble.


 14 As the livestock that go down into the valley,

 the spirit of Yahweh caused them to rest;

 so you led your people,

 to make yourself a glorious name.”


Look down from heaven, and see,

 from the habitation of your holiness and of your glory.

 Where are your zeal and your mighty acts?

 The stirring of your bowels and your inward parts

 are held back from me.


 16 For you are our Father,

 though Abraham doesn’t know us

 and Israel does not acknowledge us;

 you, Yahweh, are our Father;

 our Redeemer from everlasting is your name.


 17 O Yahweh, why do you make us to err from your ways,

 and harden our heart from your fear?

 Return for your servants’ sake,

 the tribes of your inheritance.


 18 Your holy people possessed it

 but a little while;

 our adversaries have trampled down

 your sanctuary.


 19 We have become like those over whom you never ruled,

 like those who were not called by your name.
