Isaiah 63

God’s Vengeance on the Nations

1Who 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.”
2Why is Your apparel red,
And Your garments like the one who g  treads in the wine press?
3 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.
4“For the n  day of vengeance was in My heart,
And My year of redemption has come.
5I 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.
6“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

7I 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.
8For He said, “Surely, they are w  My people,
Sons who will not deal falsely.”
So He became their x  Savior.
9In 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.
10But they ae  rebelled
And grieved His af  Holy Spirit;
Therefore He turned Himself to become their enemy,
He fought against them.
11Then 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
them,
12Who 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,
13Who led them through the depths?
Like the horse in the wilderness, they did not an  stumble;
14As 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.
16For 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.
17Why, 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.
18Your holy people possessed Your sanctuary for a little while,
Our adversaries have bb  trodden it down.
19We have become like those over whom You have never ruled,
Like those who were not called by Your name.
