Isaiah 63

1 Who is this who cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? This who is glorious in His apparel, travelling in the greatness of His strength? I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.

2 Wherefore art You red in Your apparel, and Your 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.

7 I will mention the lovingkindnesses of יהוה, and the praises of יהוה, according to all that יהוה hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Yisrael, 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 Savior (Moshia).

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.

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 (Mosheh), 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 (Mosheh) with His glorious arm, dividing the water before them, to make Himself an everlasting name?

13 That led them through the deep, as a horse in the wilderness, that they should not stumble?”

14 As a beast goeth down into the valley, the Spirit of יהוה caused him to rest; so didst You lead Your people, to make Yourself a glorious name.

15 Look down from heaven, and behold from the habitation of Your holiness and of Your glory: where is Your zeal and Your strength, the sounding of Your bowels and of Your mercies toward me? Are they restrained?

16 Doubtless You are our Father, though Avraham be ignorant of us, and Yisrael acknowledge us not; You, O יהוה, art our Father, our Redeemer; Your name is from everlasting.

17 O יהוה, why have You made us to err from Your ways, and hardened our heart from Your fear? Return for Your servants’ sake, the tribes of Your inheritance.

18 The people of Your holiness have possessed it but a little while; our adversaries have trodden down Your sanctuary.

19 We are yours; you never barest rule over them; they were not called by Your name.
