God's Vengeance on the Nations

1 Who is this who comes from 1Edom, With 2garments of aglowing colors from 3Bozrah, This One who is majestic in His apparel, bMarching in the greatness of His strength? "It is I who speak in righteousness, 4mighty to save." 2 Why is Your apparel red, And Your garments like the one who 5treads in the wine press? 3 "6I have trodden the wine trough alone, And from the peoples there was no man 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 dstained all My raiment. 4 "For the 10day of vengeance was in My heart, And My year of redemption has come. 5 "I looked, and there was 11no one to help, And I was astonished and there was no one to uphold; So My 12own arm brought salvation to Me, And My wrath upheld Me. 6 "I 13trod down the peoples in My anger And made them 14drunk in My wrath, And I epoured out their lifeblood on the earth."

God's Ancient Mercies Recalled

7 I shall make mention of the 15lovingkindnesses of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, According to all that the LORD has granted us, And the great 16goodness toward the house of Israel, Which He has granted them according to His 17compassion And according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses. 8 For He said, "Surely, they are 18My people, Sons who will not deal falsely." So He became their 19Savior. 9 In all their affliction f20He was afflicted, And the 21angel of His presence saved them; In His 22love and in His mercy He 23redeemed them, And He 24lifted them and carried them all the days of old. 10 But they 25rebelled And grieved His 26Holy Spirit; Therefore He turned Himself to become their enemy, He fought against them. 11 Then 27His people remembered 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 Holy Spirit in the midst of hthem, 12 Who caused His 30glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses, Who 31divided 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 32stumble; 14 As the cattle which go down into the valley, The Spirit of the 33LORD gave ithem rest. So You 34led Your people, To make for Yourself a glorious name.

``You Are Our Father"

15 35Look down from heaven and see from Your holy and glorious 36habitation; Where are Your 37zeal and Your mighty deeds? The 38stirrings of Your heart and Your compassion are restrained toward me. 16 For You are our 39Father, though 40Abraham does not know us And Israel does not recognize us. You, O LORD, are our Father, Our 41Redeemer from of old is Your name. 17 Why, 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. 18 Your holy people possessed Your sanctuary for a little while, Our adversaries have 45trodden it down. 19 We have become like those over whom You have never ruled, Like those who were not called by Your name.
