Isaiah 63
The Message
63The watchmen call out, "Who goes there, marching out of Edom, out of Bozrah in clothes dyed red? Name yourself, so splendidly dressed, advancing, bristling with power!" "It is I: I speak what is right, I, mighty to save!"H935H123H2556H899H1224H1921H3830H6808H7230H3581H1696H6666H7227H3467 2"And why are your robes so red, your clothes dyed red like those who tread grapes?"H122H3830H899H1869H1660 3"I've been treading the winepress alone. No one was there to help me. Angrily, I stomped the grapes; raging, I trampled the people. Their blood spurted all over me— all my clothes were soaked with blood.H1869H6333H5971H376H1869H639H7429H2534H5332H5137H899H1351H4403 4I was set on vengeance. The time for redemption had arrived.H3117H5359H3820H8141H1350H935 5I looked around for someone to help —no one. I couldn't believe it —not one volunteer. So I went ahead and did it myself, fed and fueled by my rage.H5027H5826H8074H5564H2220H3467H2534H5564 6I trampled the people in my anger, crushed them under foot in my wrath, soaked the earth with their lifeblood."H947H5971H639H7937H2534H3381H5332H776 7I'll make a list of GOD's gracious dealings, all the things GOD has done that need praising, All the generous bounties of GOD, his great goodness to the family of Israel— Compassion lavished, love extravagant.H2142H2617H3068H8416H3068H3068H1580H7227H2898H1004H3478H1580H7356H7230H2617 8He said, "Without question these are my people, children who would never betray me." So he became their Savior.H559H5971H1121H8266H3467 9In all their troubles, he was troubled, too. He didn't send someone else to help them. He did it himself, in person. Out of his own love and pity he redeemed them. He rescued them and carried them along for a long, long time.H6869H6862H4397H6440H3467H160H2551H1350H5190H5375H3117H5769 10But they turned on him; they grieved his Holy Spirit. So he turned on them, became their enemy and fought them.H4784H6087H6944H7307H2015H341H3898 11Then they remembered the old days, the days of Moses, God's servant: "Where is he who brought the shepherds of his flock up and out of the sea? And what happened to the One who set his Holy Spirit within them?H2142H3117H5769H4872H5971H5927H3220H7462H6629H7760H6944H7307H7130 12Who linked his arm with Moses' right arm, divided the waters before them, Making him famous ever after,H3212H3225H4872H8597H2220H1234H4325H6440H6213H5769H8034 13and led them through the muddy abyss as surefooted as horses on hard, level ground?H3212H8415H5483H4057H3782 14Like a herd of cattle led to pasture, the Spirit of GOD gave them rest." That's how you led your people! That's how you became so famous!H929H3381H1237H7307H3068H5117H5090H5971H6213H8597H8034 15Look down from heaven, look at us! Look out the window of your holy and magnificent house! Whatever happened to your passion, your famous mighty acts, Your heartfelt pity, your compassion? Why are you holding back?H5027H8064H7200H2073H6944H8597H7068H1369H1995H4578H7356H662 16You are our Father. Abraham and Israel are long dead. They wouldn't know us from Adam. But you're our living Father, our Redeemer, famous from eternity!H3588H1H85H3808H3045H3478H5234H3068H1H1350H8034H5769 17Why, GOD, did you make us wander from your ways? Why did you make us cold and stubborn so that we no longer worshiped you in awe? Turn back for the sake of your servants. You own us! We belong to you!H3068H8582H1870H7188H3820H3374H7725H5650H7626H5159 18For a while your holy people had it good, but now our enemies have wrecked your holy place.H5971H6944H3423H4705H6862H947H4720 19For a long time now, you've paid no attention to us. It's like you never knew us.H5769H4910H7121H8034
