63:1 Who is this who comes from Edom,1
dressed in bright red, coming from Bozrah?2
Who3 is this one wearing royal attire,4
who marches confidently5 because of his great strength?
“It is I, the one who announces vindication,
and who is able to deliver!”6
63:2 Why are your clothes red?
Why do you look like someone who has stomped on grapes in a vat?7
63:3 “I have stomped grapes in the winepress all by myself;
no one from the nations joined me.
I stomped on them8 in my anger;
I trampled them down in my rage.
Their juice splashed on my garments,
and stained9 all my clothes.
63:4 For I looked forward to the day of vengeance,
and then payback time arrived.10
63:5 I looked, but there was no one to help;
I was shocked because there was no one offering support.11
So my right arm accomplished deliverance;
my raging anger drove me on.12
63:6 I trampled nations in my anger,
I made them drunk13 in my rage,
I splashed their blood on the ground.”14
