Isaiah 63 ©
Christ sheweth his power to save, and his vengeance upon his enemies. A thankful commemoration of God's old lovingkindnesses to his people. A prayer for the return of his mercy to them.
WHO ais this that cometh from bEdom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is 1glorious in his *apparel, ctravelling in the greatness of his strength? I dthat speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
I fhave trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my *raiment.
¶lI will mention the lovingkindnesses of the LORD, and the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD hath bestowed on us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, and according to the multitude of his lovingkindnesses.
oIn all their affliction he was afflicted, and the pangel of his presence saved them: qin his love and in his pity rhe redeemed them; and she bare them, and carried them all the days of old.
¶But they trebelled, and *vexed his holy Spirit: therefore uhe was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.
¶aLook down from heaven, and behold bfrom the habitation of thy holiness and of thy glory: cwhere is thy zeal and thy strength, 3the sounding of thy *bowels and of thy mercies toward me? are they restrained?
¶O LORD, why fhast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? gReturn for thy servants' sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.
