Isaiah 63:2–6

Why are your clothes so red,

as if you have been treading out grapes?

“I have been treading the winepress alone;

no one was there to help me.

In my anger I have trampled my enemies

as if they were grapes.

In my fury I have trampled my foes.

Their blood has stained my clothes.

For the time has come for me to avenge my people,

to ransom them from their oppressors.

I was amazed to see that no one intervened

to help the oppressed.

So I myself stepped in to save them with my strong arm,

and my wrath sustained me.

I crushed the nations in my anger

and made them stagger and fall to the ground,

spilling their blood upon the earth.”

Isaiah 63:2–6 — The New International Version (NIV)

Why are your garments red,

like those of one treading the winepress?

“I have trodden the winepress alone;

from the nations no one was with me.

I trampled them in my anger

and trod them down in my wrath;

their blood spattered my garments,

and I stained all my clothing.

It was for me the day of vengeance;

the year for me to redeem had come.

I looked, but there was no one to help,

I was appalled that no one gave support;

so my own arm achieved salvation for me,

and my own wrath sustained me.

I trampled the nations in my anger;

in my wrath I made them drunk

and poured their blood on the ground.”

and stained all my apparel.

For the day of vengeance was in my heart,

and my year of redemption had come.

I looked, but there was no one to help;

I was appalled, but there was no one to uphold;

so my own arm brought me salvation,

and my wrath upheld me.

I trampled down the peoples in my anger;

I made them drunk in my wrath,

and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”

And thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?

And of the people there was none with me:

For I will tread them in mine anger,

And trample them in my fury;

And their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments,

And I will stain all my raiment.

For the day of vengeance is in mine heart,

And the year of my redeemed is come.

And I looked, and there was none to help;

And I wondered that there was none to uphold:

Therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me;

And my fury, it upheld me.

And I will tread down the people in mine anger,

And make them drunk in my fury,

And I will bring down their strength to the earth.

Made them drunk in My fury,

And brought down their strength to the earth.”

as if you had walked on the grapes to make wine?”

The Lord answers, “I have walked in the winepress alone,

and no one among the nations helped me.

and crushed them because of my anger.

Blood splashed on my clothes,

and I stained all my clothing.

I chose a time to punish people,

and the time has come for me to save.

I looked around, but I saw no one to help me.

So I used my own power to save my people;

my own anger supported me.

While I was angry, I walked on the nations.

In my anger I punished them

and poured their blood on the ground.”

Why are your clothes red

and your garments like those who trample grapes in a winepress?

No one was with me.

In my anger I trampled on people.

In my wrath I stomped on them.

so all my clothing has been stained.

The year for my reclaiming you has come.

I looked, but there was no help.

In my anger I trampled on people.

In my wrath I made them drunk

and poured their blood on the ground.”

and ground them underfoot in My fury;

their blood spattered My garments,

and all My clothes were stained.

For I planned the day of vengeance,

and the year of My redemption came.

I looked, but there was no one to help,

and I was amazed that no one assisted;

so My arm accomplished victory for Me,

and My wrath assisted Me.

I crushed nations in My anger;

I made them drunk with My wrath

and poured out their blood on the ground.

and the year for my redeeming work had come.

I looked, but there was no helper;

I crushed them in my wrath,

and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”

and I brought their juice down to the earth.”

Why are your clothes red?

They look as if you have been stomping

on grapes in a winepress.

The Lord answers, “I have been stomping on the nations

as if they were grapes.

No one was there to help me.

I walked all over the nations because I was angry.

That is why I stomped on them.

Their blood splashed all over my clothes.

So my clothes were stained bright red.

I decided it was time to pay Israel’s enemies back.

The year for me to set my people free had come.

I looked around, but no one was there to help me.

I was shocked that no one gave me any help.

So I used my own powerful arm to save my people.

I had the strength to do it because I was angry.

I walked all over the nations because I was angry with them.

I made them drink from the cup of my burning anger.

I poured their blood out on the ground.”

And My year of redemption has come.

So My own arm brought salvation to Me,

And My wrath upheld Me.

“I trod down the peoples in My anger

And made them drunk in My wrath,

And I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”
