Isaiah 63

God’s Vengeance on the Nations

Who is this who comes from a Edom,
With b garments of
Or crimson
glowing colors from d Bozrah,
This One who is majestic in His apparel,
Lit Inclining
Marching in the greatness of His strength?
It is I who speak in righteousness f mighty to save.”
Why is Your apparel red,
And Your garments like the one who g treads in the wine press?
h I have trodden the wine trough alone,
And from the peoples there was no man with Me.
I also i trod them in My anger
And j trampled them in My wrath;
And k their
Lit juice
lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments,
And I
Lit defiled
stained all My raiment.
“For the n day of vengeance was in My heart,
And My year of redemption has come.
I looked, and there was o no one to help,
And I was astonished and there was no one to uphold;
So My p own arm brought salvation to Me,
And My wrath upheld Me.
“I q trod down the peoples in My anger
And made them r drunk in My wrath,
And I
Lit brought down their juice to the earth
poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”

God’s Ancient Mercies Recalled

I shall make mention of the t lovingkindnesses of the  Lord, the praises of the  Lord,
According to all that the  Lord has granted us,
And the great u goodness toward the house of Israel,
Which He has granted them according to His v compassion
And according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.
For He said, “Surely, they are w My people,
Sons who will not deal falsely.”
So He became their x Savior.
In all their affliction
Another reading is He was not an adversary
z He was afflicted,
And the aa angel of His presence saved them;
In His ab love and in His mercy He ac redeemed them,
And He ad lifted them and carried them all the days of old.
10 But they ae rebelled
And grieved His af Holy Spirit;
Therefore He turned Himself to become their enemy,
He fought against them.
11 Then ag His people remembered the days of old, of Moses.
Where is ah He who brought them up out of the sea with the
Some mss read shepherd
shepherds of His flock?
Where is He who aj put His Holy Spirit in the midst of
Lit him
12 Who caused His al glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses,
Who am divided the waters before them to make for Himself an everlasting name,
13 Who led them through the depths?
Like the horse in the wilderness, they did not an stumble;
14 As the cattle which go down into the valley,
The Spirit of the ao  Lord gave
Lit him
them rest.
So You aq led Your people,
To make for Yourself a glorious name.

“You Are Our Father”

15  ar Look down from heaven and see from Your holy and glorious as habitation;
Where are Your at zeal and Your mighty deeds?
The au stirrings of Your heart and Your compassion are restrained toward me.
16 For You are our av Father, though aw Abraham does not know us
And Israel does not recognize us.
You, O  Lord, are our Father,
Our ax Redeemer from of old is Your name.
17 Why, O  Lord, do You ay cause us to stray from Your ways
And az harden our heart from fearing You?
ba Return for the sake of Your servants, the tribes of Your heritage.
18 Your holy people possessed Your sanctuary for a little while,
Our adversaries have bb trodden it down.
19 We have become like those over whom You have never ruled,
Like those who were not called by Your name.
