1 Who is this that cometh from Edom? With red garments from Bozrah? This that is beautiful in his raiment, Marching in the greatness of his strength? I, who speak in righteousness, Mighty to save.
2 Wherefore is thy raiment red? And thy garments like one that treadeth in the wine-press?
3 Alone have I pressed the wine-press; And of the peoples there was none with me; For I will tread them in my wrath, And will trample them down in my fury; And their blood shall be sprinkled on my garments, And I will stain all my raiment.
4 For the day of vengeance is in my heart; And the year of my redeemed is come.
5 Therefore I looked, And there was none to help; And I wondered that there was none to uphold; Therefore mine arm brought salvation to me And my wrath upheld me.
6 And I will tread down the peoples in my wrath, And will make them drunk in my fury, And will east down their strength to the earth.
7 The mercies of Jehovah will I keep in remembrance, The praises of Jehovah; According to all that Jehovah hath bestowed on us, And in the abundance of kindness toward the house of Israel, Which he hath bestowed on them according to his mercies, And according to the multitude of his loving-kindnesses.
8 For he said, Surely they are my people; Children that do not lie; Therefore he became their Savior.
9 In all their affliction he was afflicted; And the angel of his presence saved them; In his love And in his compassion he redeemed them; And he bare them And carried them all the days of the age.
10 But they were rebellious, And provoked his Holy Spirit; Therefore he was turned to be their enemy, And fought against them.
11 And he remembered the days of old, In which Moses was with his people. Where is he that made them to come up out of the sea, With the shepherd of his flock? Where is he that put his Holy Spirit in the midst of them?
12 That led them by the right hand of Moses, By the arm of his glory; That divided the waters before them, That he might gain for himself all everlasting name?
13 That made them walk through the depths, As a horse ill the desert, So that they did not stumble?
14 He went down, as a beast into a plain; The Spirit of Jehovah gave him rest; So didst thou lead thy people, That thou mightst make for thyself a glorious name.
15 Look down from heaven; Behold from the habitation, Of thy holiness And of thy glory. Where is thy zeal And thy strength? The multitude of thy bowels, And of thy compassions toward me, Have been restrained.
16 Surely thou art our Father, Though Abraham do not know us, And Israel do not acknowledge us; Yet thou art our Fattier And out Redeemer; From everlasting is thy name.
17 Why didst thou cause us, O Jehovah, To wander from thy ways? Why didst thou cause our heart To depart from thy fear? Return, on account of thy servants, To the tribes of thine inheritance.
18 For a little time the people of thy holiness possessed it; Our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary.
19 For a long period have we been They over whom thou hast not ruled, On whom thy name hath not been called.
