The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with deep-red garments from Bozrah, this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? -- I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save. 1 Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson?

2 -- Wherefore is redness in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winevat? 2 Why are your garments red, like those of one treading the winepress?

I trampled them in my anger and trod them down in my wrath; their blood spattered my garments, and I stained all my clothing.

6 And I have trodden down the peoples in mine anger, and made them drunk in my fury; and their blood have I brought down to the earth. 6 I trampled the nations in my anger; in my wrath I made them drunk and poured their blood on the ground."
7 I will record the loving-kindnesses of Jehovah, the praises of Jehovah, according to all that Jehovah hath bestowed upon us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel which he hath bestowed upon them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his loving-kindnesses. 7 I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the LORD has done for us-- yes, the many good things he has done for the house of Israel, according to his compassion and many kindnesses.
8 And he said, They are indeed my people, children that will not lie; and he became their Saviour. 8 He said, "Surely they are my people, sons who will not be false to me"; and so he became their Savior.
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 bore them and carried them all the days of old. 9 In all their distress he too was distressed, and the angel of his presence saved them. In his love and mercy he redeemed them; he lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.

11 But he remembered the days of old, Moses [and] his people: Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherds of his flock? Where is he that put his holy Spirit within him, 11 Then his people recalled the days of old, the days of Moses and his people-- where is he who brought them through the sea, with the shepherd of his flock? Where is he who set his Holy Spirit among them,
12 his glorious arm leading them by the right hand of Moses, dividing the waters before them, to make himself an everlasting name, 12 who sent his glorious arm of power to be at Moses' right hand, who divided the waters before them, to gain for himself everlasting renown,
13 -- who led them through the depths, like a horse in the wilderness, [and] they stumbled not? 13 who led them through the depths? Like a horse in open country, they did not stumble;
14 As cattle go down into the valley, the Spirit of Jehovah gave them rest; so didst thou lead thy people, to make thyself a glorious name. 14 like cattle that go down to the plain, they were given rest by the Spirit of the LORD.

15 Look down from the heavens, and behold from the habitation of thy holiness and of thy glory! Where is thy zeal and thy strength, the sounding of thy bowels and of thy tender mercies?

17 Why, O Jehovah, hast thou made us to err from thy ways, hast hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance. 17 Why, O LORD, do you make us wander from your ways and harden our hearts so we do not revere you? Return for the sake of your servants, the tribes that are your inheritance.
