63 Who is this that cometh from Edom,
aWith dyed garments from bBozrah?
This that is †glorious in his apparel,
cTravelling in the greatness of his strength?
I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
2 Wherefore dart thou red in thine apparel,
And thy garments like him that etreadeth in the winefat?
3 I have etrodden the winepress alone;
And of the people there was none with me:
For fI will tread them in mine anger,
And trample them in gmy fury;
And dtheir hblood shall be sprinkled upon my garments,
And I will stain all my raiment.
4 For ithe day of vengeance is in mine heart,
And the year of kmy redeemed is come.
5 lAnd I looked, and mthere was none to help;
And I wondered that there was none to uphold:
nTherefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me;
6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger,
And omake them drunk in gmy fury,
And I will bring down their hstrength to the earth.
7 I will pmention the lovingkindnesses of the Lord, and the praises of the Lord,
qAccording to all that the Lord hath bestowed on us,
And rthe great goodness toward the house of Israel,
Which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies,
And saccording to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses.
8 For he said, Surely they are my people,
Children that will not lie:
So he was their Saviour.
9 tIn all their affliction he was afflicted,
And uthe angel of his presence saved them:
vIn his love and in his pity whe redeemed them;
And he bare them, and xcarried them all the days of old.
10 But ythey rebelled, and zvexed his holy Spirit:
Therefore ahe was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.
11 Then bhe remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying,
Where is che that brought them up out of the sea with the ||shepherd of dhis flock?
eWhere is he that put his holy Spirit within him?
12 That led them by the right hand of Moses fwith his glorious arm,
gDividing the water before them, hto make himself an everlasting name?
13 iThat led them through the deep,
kAs an horse iin the wilderness, that they should not stumble?
14 As a beast goeth down into the valley,
The Spirit of the Lord caused him to rest:
So didst thou lead thy people,
hTo make thyself a glorious name.
15 lLook down from heaven, and behold
mFrom the habitation of thy holiness and of thy glory:
Where is thy zeal and thy strength,
||nThe sounding of thy bowels and of othy mercies toward me? are they prestrained?
16 qDoubtless thou art our father,
Though rAbraham be ignorant of us,
And Israel acknowledge us not:
Thou, O Lord, art our father, ||our sredeemer;
Thy name is from everlasting.
17 O Lord, why hast thou tmade us to err from thy ways,
And uhardened our heart from thy fear?
vReturn for thy servants’ sake,
wThe tribes of thine inheritance.
18 xThe people of thy holiness have possessed it but a little while:
yOur adversaries zhave trodden down thy sanctuary.
19 We are thine: thou never barest rule over them;
†They were not called by thy name.
