Isaiah 63

63
LXIII
1Who is this that cometh from Edom?
With dyed garments from Bozrah?
This that is glorious in his apparel,
Marching onward in the multitude of his strength?
I, who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
2Wherefore is thine apparel red?
And thy garments as of one that treadeth the vine-vat?
3I have trodden the wine-press alone,
And of the people there was not a man with me:
And I trod them in mine anger,
And trampled them in my fury;
So that their blood is sprinkled upon my garments,
And I have stained all mine apparel.
4For the day of vengeance was in mine heart,
And the year of my redeemed was come.
5And I looked, and there was none to help;
And I wondered that there was none to uphold;
Therefore mine own arm wrought salvation for me;
And my fury, it upheld me.
6And I trod down the people in mine anger,
And made them drunk in my fury;
And made their blood to sink down into the earth.
7I will mention the lovingkindnesses of Jehovah, and the praises of Jehovah,
According to all that Jehovah hath bestowed on us,
And the manifold goodness towards the house of Israel,
Which He hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses.
8For He said: Surely they are my people,
Children that will not prove false;
So He became their Saviour.
9In all their adversity, He was not an adversary;
But the angel of his presence saved them:
In his love, and in his pity, He redeemed them;
And He took them up, and He carried them all the days of old.
10But they rebelled, and vexed his Holy Spirit;
Therefore He was turned to be their enemy,
And He fought against them.
11Then remembered his people the ancient days of Moses:
Where is He who brought them up from the sea with the shepherd of his flock?
Where is lie who put his Holy Spirit within him?
12Who made his glorious arm to march at the right hand of Moses,
Dividing the waters before them,
To make for Himself an everlasting name?
13Who led them through the deep,
As a horse through a desert, that they should not stumble?
14As the cattle descend into the valley,
The Spirit of Jehovah caused them to rest:
So didst thou lead thy people,
To make for thyself a glorious name.
15Look down from heaven, and behold from the habitation of thy holiness, and of thy glory;
Where is thy zeal and thy might,
The yearning of thy bowels, and of thy mercies toward me? Are they restrained?
16Doubtless thou art our Father;
For Abraham knoweth us not,
And Israel doth not acknowledge us.
Thou, O Jehovah, art our Father:
Our Redeemer is thy name from everlasting.
17Wherefore, O Jehovah, hast thou made us to err from thy ways?
Hast hardened our hearts from thy fear?
Return, for thy servants’ sake,
The tribes of thine inheritance.
18Thy holy people have possessed the land but a little time;
Our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary.
19We have long been as those over whom thou hast not ruled;
Who have not been called by thy name.

Isaiah 63

63
1Who is this who comes from Edom,
with dyed garments from Bozrah?
Who this who is glorious in his clothing,
marching in the greatness of his strength?
“It is I who speak in righteousness,
mighty to save.”
2Why is your clothing red,
and your garments like him who treads in the wine vat?
3“I have trodden the wine press alone;
and of the peoples, no one was with me:
Yes, I trod them in my anger,
and trampled them in my wrath.
Their lifeblood is sprinkled on my garments,
and I have stained all my clothing.
4For the day of vengeance was in my heart,
and the year of my redeemed has come.
5I looked, and there was no one to help;
and I wondered that there was no one to uphold:
therefore my own arm brought salvation to me;
and my own wrath upheld me.
6I trod down the peoples in my anger,
and made them drunk in my wrath,
and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”
7I will tell of the loving kindnesses of Yahweh
and the praises of Yahweh,
according to all that Yahweh has given to us,
and the great goodness toward the house of Israel,
which he has given to them according to his mercies,
and according to the multitude of his loving kindnesses.
8For he said, “Surely, they are my people,
children who will not deal falsely;”
so he became their Savior.
9In all their affliction he was afflicted,
and the angel of his presence saved them.
In his love and in his pity he redeemed them.
He bore them,
and carried them all the days of old.
10But they rebelled,
and grieved his holy Spirit.
Therefore he turned and became their enemy,
and he himself fought against them.
11Then 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 his Holy Spirit among them?”
12Who caused his glorious arm to be at Moses’ right hand?
Who divided the waters before them, to make himself an everlasting name?
13Who led them through the depths,
like a horse in the wilderness,
so that they didn’t stumble?
14As the livestock that go down into the valley,
Yahweh’s Spirit caused them to rest.
So you led your people, to make yourself a glorious name.
15Look down from heaven,
and see from the habitation of your holiness and of your glory.
Where are your zeal and your mighty acts?
The yearning of your heart and your compassion is restrained toward me.
16For 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.
17O Yahweh, why do you make us wander from your ways,
and harden our heart from your fear?
Return for your servants’ sake,
the tribes of your inheritance.
18Your holy people possessed it but a little while.
Our adversaries have trodden down your sanctuary.
19We have become like those over whom you never ruled,
like those who were not called by your name.
