Isaiah 63:6 Meaning and Commentary

Isaiah 63:6

And I will tread down the people in mine anger
(See Gill on Isaiah 63:3), and make them drunk in my fury;
or with it F19 the wrath of God is signified by a cup, which he gives wicked men to drink, and which is an inebriating one to them, ( Psalms 75:8 ) ( Isaiah 51:17-23 ) ( Jeremiah 25:15 ) , and here it signifies the cup of the wine of the fierceness of God's wrath, which shall be given to mystical Babylon, to antichrist and his followers, ( Revelation 14:10 ) ( 16:19 ) : and I will bring down their strength to the earth;
their strong kingdoms, fortified cities, and mighty men, their wealth and riches, of which they boasted, and in which they trusted; see ( Isaiah 26:5 ) . The eighteenth chapter of the Revelation is a commentary on these words.

8 For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour.
