1 Who [is] this that comes from Edom, with red garments from Bozrah? This glorious [one] in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
2 Why [art thou] red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treads in the winefat?
3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the peoples [there was] no one with me; for I have trodden them with my anger and have trampled them with my fury; and their blood sprinkled my garments and stained all my raiment.
4 For the day of vengeance [is] in my heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
5 And I looked, and [there was] no one to help; and I wondered that [there was] no one to uphold [me]; therefore my own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.
6 And I have trampled down the people with my anger and made them drunk in my fury, and I brought down their strength to the earth.
7 I will mention the mercies of the LORD [and] the praises of the LORD according to all that the LORD has bestowed on us and the greatness of his goodness toward the house of Israel, which he has bestowed on them according to his mercies and according to the multitude of his mercies.
8 For he said, Surely they [are] my people, sons [that] do not lie: and he was their Saviour.
9 In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the Angel of his face saved them: with his love and with his clemency he redeemed them; and he bore them and carried them all the days of the age.
10 But they were rebels and angered his holy Spirit; therefore, he was turned to be their enemy, [and] he himself fought against them.
11 Then he remembered the days of old, of Moses, [and] his people, [saying], Where [is] he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? Where [is] he that put his Holy Spirit within him?
12 He that led [them] by the right hand of Moses with the arm of his glory, he who divided the water before them, thus making himself an everlasting name?
13 He that led them through the deep, as [a] horse in the wilderness, they never stumbled.
14 The Spirit of the LORD pastored them as a beast that goes down into the valley; so didst thou lead thy people, to make thyself a glorious name.
15 Look down from heaven, and behold from the habitation of thy holiness and of thy glory; where [is] thy zeal and thy strength, the feeling of thy bowels and of thy mercies toward me? are they restrained?
16 Doubtless thou [art] our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel not acknowledge us; thou, O LORD, [art] our father; our everlasting Redeemer is thy name.
17 O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways? Hast thou hardened our heart to thy fear? Return for thy servants, for the tribes of thine inheritance.
18 The people of thy holiness have possessed [the promised land] but a little while: our adversaries have trodden down thy sanctuary.
19 We have been like those over whom thou didst never rule, who were never called by thy name.:
