1 Who is this coming from Edom in red-stained garments?Who is this from Bozrah, arrayed in majesty,pressing forward in the strength of his power?It is I, who am mighty to save,announcing righteousness!
2 Why are you clothed in red, your garmentslike those who tread grapes in the winepress? 3 Alone I have trodden out a vatful;of the nations no one was with me.I trod them down in my anger;in my wrath I trampled them.Their lifeblood spattered my garments,and I have stained my whole attire.
4 For I had resolved on a day of vengeance,and the year of my redeemed had come.
5 I glanced around, but none would lend help;I glared, but no one would assist.So my own arm brought about salvation for me,and my wrath, it assisted me. 6 I trod nations underfoot in my anger;I made them drunk by my ragewhen I cast their glory to the ground.
7 I will recount in praise of JehovahJehovah’s loving favors,according to all that Jehovah has done for us,according to the great kindnesshe has mercifully and most graciouslyrendered the house of Israel.
8 For he thought, Surely they are my people,sons who will not play false;and so he became their Savior: 9 with all their troubles he troubled himself,the angel of his presence delivering them.In his love and compassionhe himself redeemed them;he lifted them up and carried themall the days of old. 10 Yet they rebelled and grieved his holy Spirit,till he became their enemyand himself fought against them.
11 Then his peoplea recalled the days of Moses of old:bWhere is he who brought them up out of the Seawith the shepherd of his flock?Where is he who put into him his holy Spirit, 12 who made his glorious arm proceedat the right hand of Moses,who divided the waters before them,making an everlasting name for himself 13 when he led them through the deep?
Like the horse of the desert, they stumbled not;
14 like cattle descending the slopes of ravines,it was the Spirit of Jehovah that guided them.cSo you led your people, O Jehovah,acquiring illustrious renown.
15 O look down from heaven,from your holy and glorious celestial abode,and behold!Where now are your zeal and your might?The yearnings of your bosom and your compassionare withheld from us! 16 Surely you are our Father!Though Abraham does not know usor Israel recognize us,you, O Jehovah, are our Father;Our Redeemer from Eternity is your name.
17 Why, O Jehovah, have you made us stray from your ways,hardening our hearts so that we do not fear you?Relent,d for the sake of your servants,the tribes that are your inheritance. 18 But a little while had your people possessed the holy placewhen our enemies trod down your sanctuary. 19 We have become as thosewhom you have never ruledand who have not been known by your name
