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 3  is this one wearing royal attire, 4 

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 

63:3I 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
