Bible: Isaiah 63:1-6
The Victorious Divine Warrior
63:1 Who is this who comes from Edom, 1
dressed in bright red, coming from Bozrah? 2
who marches confidently 5 because of his great strength?
“It is I, the one who announces vindication,
and who is able to deliver!” 6
63:2 Why are your clothes red?
Why do you look like someone who has stomped on grapes in a vat? 7
63:3 “I have stomped grapes in the winepress all by myself;
no one from the nations joined me.
I stomped on them 8 in my anger;
I trampled them down in my rage.
Their juice splashed on my garments,
and stained 9 all my clothes.
63:4 For I looked forward to the day of vengeance,
and then payback time arrived. 10
63:5 I looked, but there was no one to help;
I was shocked because there was no one offering support. 11
So my right arm accomplished deliverance;
my raging anger drove me on. 12
63:6 I trampled nations in my anger,
I made them drunk 13 in my rage,
I splashed their blood on the ground.” 14
