The LORD’s Day of Vengeance
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:1 -

Who is this coming from Edom

in crimson-stained garments from Bozrah —

this one who is splendid in his apparel,

striding in his formidable[fn] might?

It is I, proclaiming vindication,[fn]

powerful to save.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:2 -

Why are your clothes red,

and your garments like one who treads a winepress?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:3 -

I trampled the winepress alone,

and no one from the nations was with me.

I trampled them in my anger

and ground them underfoot in my fury;

their blood spattered my garments,

and all my clothes were stained.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:4 -

For I planned the day of vengeance,

and the year of my redemption[fn] came.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:5 -

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.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:6 -

I crushed nations in my anger;

I made them drunk with my wrath

and poured out their blood on the ground.

Remembrance of Grace
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:7 -

I will make known the LORD’s faithful love

and the LORD’s praiseworthy acts,

because of all the LORD has done for us —

even the many good things

he has done for the house of Israel,

which he did for them based on his compassion

and the abundance of his faithful love.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:8 -

He said, “They are indeed my people,

children who will not be disloyal,”

and he became their Savior.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:9 -

In all their suffering, he suffered,[fn]

and the angel of his presence saved them.

He redeemed them

because of his love and compassion;

he lifted them up and carried them

all the days of the past.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:10 -

But they rebelled

and grieved his Holy Spirit.

So he became their enemy

and fought against them.

Then he[fn] remembered the days of the past,

the days of Moses and his people.

Where is he who brought them out of the sea

with the shepherds[fn] of his flock?

Where is he who put his Holy Spirit among the flock?

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:12 -

He made his glorious strength

available at the right hand of Moses,

divided the water before them

to make an eternal name for himself,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:13 -

and led them through the depths

like a horse in the wilderness,

so that they did not stumble.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:14 -

Like cattle that go down into the valley,

the Spirit of the LORD gave them[fn] rest.

You led your people this way

to make a glorious name for yourself.

Israel’s Prayer
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:15 -

Look down from heaven and see

from your lofty home ​— ​holy and beautiful.

Where is your zeal and your might?

Your yearning[fn] and your compassion

are withheld from me.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:16 -

Yet you are our Father,

even though Abraham does not know us

and Israel doesn’t recognize us.

You, LORD, are our Father;

your name is Our Redeemer

from Ancient Times.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:17 -

Why, LORD, do you make us stray from your ways?

You harden our hearts so we do not fear[fn] you.

Return, because of your servants,

the tribes of your heritage.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:18 -

Your holy people had a possession[fn]

for a little while,

but our enemies have trampled down

your sanctuary.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 63:19 -

We have become like those you never ruled,

like those who did not bear your name.
