New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
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." 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 Someone asks, "Why are your clothes bright red as if you had walked on the grapes to make wine?" 2 Why are your garments red, like those of one treading the winepress?
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. 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 chose a time to punish people, and the time has come for me to save. 4 For the day of vengeance was in my heart, and the year of my redemption has come.
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. 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 While I was angry, I walked on the nations. In my anger I punished them and poured their blood 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."
