Who is this that cometh from Edom, in dyed clothes from Bozrah? this fair man in his stole, either long cloak, going in the multitude of his strength? I that speak rightfulness, and am a for-fighter for to save (It is I who speak righteously/It is I who speak of right over wrong, and am a fighter for you, and will save you).
Why therefore is thy clothing red? and thy clothes as of men stamping in a presser? (And so why is thy clothing red? and thy clothes like those who stamp at a winepress?)
I alone stamped the press, and of folks, either Gentiles, no man is, either was, with me (I stamped the winepress alone, and no one from the nations, or from the Gentiles, was with me); (and so) I stamped them in my strong vengeance, and I defouled them in my wrath; and their blood is sprinkled on my clothes, and I made foul all my clothes.
For why a day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my yielding cometh.
I looked about, and none helper was; I sought, and none was that helped; and mine arm saved to me, and mine indignation, that helped me. (I looked about, but no one would help me; I sought everywhere, but no one would help; so my own arm saved me, and my anger, that upheld me.)
And I defouled peoples in my strong vengeance; and I made them drunken in mine indignation, and I drew down their strength into the earth. (And I defiled the nations in my strong vengeance; and I made them drunk in my indignation, and I poured out their blood onto the ground.)
