Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 "Who is this coming from the city of Bozrah in Edom? Who is this so splendidly dressed in red, marching along in power and strength?" It is the Lord, powerful to save, coming to announce his victory. 1 Who is this coming from Edom, from Bozrah, with his garments stained crimson? Who is this, robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of his strength? "It is I, speaking in righteousness, mighty to save."
2 "Why is his clothing so red, like that of someone who tramples grapes to make wine?" 2 Why are your garments red, like those of one treading the winepress?
3 The Lord answers, "I have trampled the nations like grapes, and no one came to help me. I trampled them in my anger, and their blood has stained all my clothing. 3 "I have trodden the winepress alone; from the nations no one was with me. I trampled them in my anger and trod them down in my wrath; their blood spattered my garments, and I stained all my clothing.
4 I decided that the time to save my people had come; it was time to punish their enemies. 4 For the day of vengeance was in my heart, and the year of my redemption has come.
5 I was amazed when I looked and saw that there was no one to help me. But my anger made me strong, and I won the victory myself. 5 I looked, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that no one gave support; so my own arm worked salvation for me, and my own wrath sustained me.
6 In my anger I trampled whole nations and shattered them. I poured out their lifeblood on the ground." 6 I trampled the nations in my anger; in my wrath I made them drunk and poured their blood on the ground."
