NASB — Isaiah 63 — KJV

God’s Vengeance on the Nations

  1 Who is this who comes from aEdom,
  With bgarments of Iglowing colors from cBozrah,
  This One who is majestic in His apparel,
  IIMarching in the greatness of His strength?
  “It is I who speak in righteousness, dmighty to save.”
  2 Why is Your apparel red,
  And Your garments like the one who atreads in the wine press?
  3aI have trodden the wine trough alone,
  And from the peoples there was no man with Me.
  I also btrod them in My anger
  And ctrampled them in My wrath;
  And dtheir Ilifeblood is sprinkled on My garments,
  And I IIstained all My raiment.
  4 “For the aday of vengeance was in My heart,
  And My year of redemption has come.
  5 “I looked, and there was ano one to help,
  And I was astonished and there was no one to uphold;
  So My bown arm brought salvation to Me,
  And My wrath upheld Me.
  6 “I atrod down the peoples in My anger
  And made them bdrunk in My wrath,
  And I Ipoured out their lifeblood on the earth.”

God’s Ancient Mercies Recalled

  7 ¶ I shall make mention of the alovingkindnesses of the LORD, the praises of the LORD,
  According to all that the LORD has granted us,
  And the great bgoodness toward the house of Israel,
  Which He has granted them according to His ccompassion
  And according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.
  8 For He said, “Surely, they are aMy people,
  Sons who will not deal falsely.”
  So He became their bSavior.
  9 In all their affliction IaHe was afflicted,
  And the bangel of His presence saved them;
  In His clove and in His mercy He dredeemed them,
  And He elifted them and carried them all the days of old.
  10 But they arebelled
  And grieved His bHoly Spirit;
  Therefore He turned Himself to become their enemy,
  He fought against them.
  11 Then aHis people remembered the days of old, of Moses.
  Where is bHe who brought them up out of the sea with the Ishepherds of His flock?
  Where is He who cput His Holy Spirit in the midst of IIthem,
  12 Who caused His aglorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses,
  Who bdivided the waters before them to make for Himself an everlasting name,
  13 Who led them through the depths?
  Like the horse in the wilderness, they did not astumble;
  14 As the cattle which go down into the valley,
  The Spirit of the aLORD gave Ithem rest.
  So You bled Your people,
  To make for Yourself a glorious name.

“You Are Our Father”

  15aLook down from heaven and see from Your holy and glorious bhabitation;
  Where are Your czeal and Your mighty deeds?
  The dstirrings of Your heart and Your compassion are restrained toward me.
  16 For You are our aFather, though bAbraham does not know us
  And Israel does not recognize us.
  You, O LORD, are our Father,
  Our cRedeemer from of old is Your name.
  17 Why, O LORD, do You acause us to stray from Your ways
  And bharden our heart from fearing You?
  cReturn for the sake of Your servants, the tribes of Your heritage.
  18 Your holy people possessed Your sanctuary for a little while,
  Our adversaries have atrodden [it] down.
  19 We have become [like] those over whom You have never ruled,
  [Like] those who were not called by Your name.

Christ sheweth who he is,

1 ¶ Who [is] this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this [that is] glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.

what his victory over his enemies,

2 Wherefore [art thou] red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 3 I have trodden the winepress alone; 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. 4 For the day of vengeance [is] in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. 5 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. 6 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.

and what his mercy toward his Church.

7 ¶ I will mention the lovingkindnesses of the LORD, [and] the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according 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 In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.

In his just wrath he remembereth his free mercy.

10 ¶ But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, [and] he fought against them. 11 Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, [and] his people, [saying], Where [is] he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where [is] he that put his holy Spirit within him? 12 That led [them] by the right hand of Moses with his glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make himself an everlasting name? 13 That led them through the deep, as an horse in 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, to make thyself a glorious name.
