1Who is this who comes from 1Edom, With 2garments of aglowingcolors from 3Bozrah, ThisOne who is majestic in His apparel, bMarching in the greatness of His strength ? "It is I who speak in righteousness, 4mighty to save."
2Why is Your apparelred, And Your garments like the one who 5treads in the winepress ?
"6I have trodden the winetroughalone, And from the peoplesthere was noman with Me. I also 7trod them in My anger And 8trampled them in My wrath ; And 9their clifeblood is sprinkled on My garments, And I dstainedall My raiment.
"For the 10day of vengeance was in My heart, And My year of redemption has come.
"I looked, and there was 11noone to help, And I was astonished and there was noone to uphold ; So My 12own armbroughtsalvation to Me, And My wrathupheld Me.
"I 13troddown the peoples in My anger And made them 14drunk in My wrath, And I epoured out their lifeblood on the earth."
I shall makemention of the 15lovingkindnesses of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, According to all that the LORD has granted us, And the great16goodness toward the house of Israel, Which He has granted them according to His 17compassion And according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.
For He said, "Surely, they are 18My people, Sons who will not dealfalsely." So He became their 19Savior.
In all their afflictionf20He was afflicted, And the 21angel of His presencesaved them; In His 22love and in His mercy He 23redeemed them, And He 24lifted them and carried them all the days of old.
But they 25rebelled And grieved His 26HolySpirit ; Therefore He turned Himself to become their enemy, He fought against them.
Then 27His peopleremembered the days of old, of Moses. Where is 28He who brought them up out of the sea with the gshepherds of His flock ? Where is He who 29put His HolySpirit in the midst of hthem,
Who caused His 30gloriousarm to go at the righthand of Moses, Who 31divided the watersbefore them to make for Himself an everlastingname,
Who led them through the depths ? Like the horse in the wilderness, they did not 32stumble ;
As the cattle which godown into the valley, The Spirit of the 33LORDgaveithem rest. So You 34led Your people, To make for Yourself a gloriousname.
1535Lookdown from heaven and see from Your holy and glorious36habitation ; Where are Your 37zeal and Your mightydeeds ? The 38stirrings of Your heart and Your compassion are restrainedtoward me.
For You are our 39Father, though40Abraham does not know us And Israel does not recognize us. You, O LORD, are our Father, Our 41Redeemer from of old is Your name.
17Why, O LORD, do You 42cause us to stray from Your ways And 43harden our heart from fearing You? 44Return for the sake of Your servants, the tribes of Your heritage.
Your holypeoplepossessed Your sanctuary for a littlewhile, Our adversaries have 45trodden it down.
We have become like those over whom You have neverruled, Like those who were not called by Your name.
