The Lord In Judgment and Salvation

63 Who is this who comes from Edom,

With dyed garments from Bozrah,

This One who is 1glorious in His apparel,

Traveling in the greatness of His strength?—

“I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.”

2 Why ais Your apparel red,

And Your garments like one who treads in the winepress?

3 “I have btrodden the winepress alone,

And from the peoples no one was with Me.

For I have trodden them in My anger,

And trampled them in My fury;

Their blood is sprinkled upon My garments,

And I have stained all My robes.

4 For the cday of vengeance is in My heart,

And the year of My redeemed has come.

5 dI looked, but ethere was no one to help,

And I wondered

That there was no one to uphold;

Therefore My own farm brought salvation for Me;

And My own fury, it sustained Me.

6 I have trodden down the peoples in My anger,

Made them drunk in My fury,

And brought down their strength to the earth.”


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
