Isaiah 63:1–6

God’s Day of Vengeance and Redemption

63 Who is this coming from Edom,w

from Bozrah,x with his garments stained crimson?y

Who is this, robed in splendor,

striding forward in the greatness of his strength?z

“It is I, proclaiming victory,

mighty to save.”a

Why are your garments red,

like those of one treading the winepress?b

“I have trodden the winepressc alone;

from the nations no one was with me.

I trampledd them in my anger

and trod them down in my wrath;e

their blood spattered my garments,f

and I stained all my clothing.

It was for me the day of vengeance;g

the year for me to redeem had come.

I looked, but there was no oneh to help,

I was appalled that no one gave support;

so my own armi achieved salvation for me,

and my own wrath sustained me.j

I trampledk the nations in my anger;

in my wrath I made them drunkl

and poured their bloodm on the ground.”
