Isaiah 63:1-7 (New Century Version)

View In My Bible
1 Who is this coming from Edom, from the city of Bozrah, dressed in red? Who is this dressed in fine clothes and marching forward with his great power? He says, "I, the Lord, speak what is right. I have the power to save you." 2 Someone asks, "Why are your clothes bright red as if you had walked on the grapes to make wine?" 3 The Lord answers, "I have walked in the winepress alone, and no one among the nations helped me. I was angry and walked on the nations and crushed them because of my anger. Blood splashed on my clothes, and I stained all my clothing. 4 I chose a time to punish people, and the time has come for me to save. 5 I looked around, but I saw no one to help me. I was surprised that no one supported me. So I used my own power to save my people; my own anger supported me. 6 While I was angry, I walked on the nations. In my anger I punished them and poured their blood on the ground." 7 I will tell about the Lord's kindness and praise him for everything he has done. and for his goodness to the people of Israel. He has shown great mercy to us and has been very kind to us.
