Chapter 63

1

1 Who is this that comes from Edom, in crimsoned garments, from Bozrah- This one arrayed in majesty, marching in the greatness of his strength? “It is I, I who announce vindication, I who am mighty to save.”

2

Why is your apparel red, and your garments like those of the wine presser?

3

“The wine press I have trodden alone, and of my people there was no one with me. I trod them in my anger, and trampled them down in my wrath; Their blood spurted on my garments; all my apparel I stained.

4

For the day of vengeance was in my heart, my year for redeeming was at hand.

5

I looked about, but there was no one to help, I was appalled that there was no one to lend support; So my own arm brought about the victory and my own wrath lent me its support.

6

I trampled down the peoples in my anger, I crushed them in my wrath, and I let their blood run out upon the ground.”

7

2 The favors of the LORD I will recall, the glorious deeds of the LORD, Because of all he has done for us; for he is good to the house of Israel, He has favored us according to his mercy and his great kindness.

8

He said: They are indeed my people, children who are not disloyal; So he became their savior

9

in their every affliction. It was not a messenger or an angel, but he himself who saved them. Because of his love and pity he redeemed them himself, Lifting them and carrying them all the days of old.

10

But they rebelled, and grieved his holy spirit; So he turned on them like an enemy, and fought against them.

11

Then they remembered the days of old and Moses, his servant; Where is he who brought up out of the sea the shepherd of his flock? Where is he who put his holy spirit in their midst;

12

Whose glorious arm was the guide at Moses’ right; Who divided the waters before them, winning for himself eternal renown;

13

Who led them without stumbling through the depths like horses in the open country,

14

Like cattle going down into the plain, the spirit of the LORD guiding them? Thus you led your people, bringing glory to your name.

15

Look down from heaven and regard us from your holy and glorious palace! Where is your zealous care and your might, your surge of pity and your mercy? O Lord, hold not back,

16

for you are our father. Were Abraham not to know us, nor Israel to acknowledge us, You, LORD, are our father, our redeemer you are named forever.

17

Why do you let us wander, O LORD, from your ways, and harden our hearts so that we fear you not? Return for the sake of your servants, the tribes of your heritage.

18

Why have the wicked invaded your holy place, why have our enemies trampled your sanctuary?

19

Too long have we been like those you do not rule, who do not bear your name. Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, with the mountains quaking before you.

 
1 [1-6] In a dramatic dialogue between God and the prophet, the Lord is portrayed as the sole avenger of justice against his enemies.

2 [ 63:7- 64:11] A prayer probably composed towar
d the end of the exile, in which the prophet, after recalling God’s blessings on Israel in its past history ( Isaiah 63:7-10), especially at the Exodus ( Isaiah 63:11-14), begs the Lord to come once more to the aid of his people ( 63:15- 64:3), who now humbly confess their sins ( Isaiah 64:4-11).

1 “ Quis est iste, qui venit de Edom,
tinctis vestibus de Bosra?
Iste formosus in stola sua,
gradiens in multitudine fortitudinis suae ”.
“ Sum ego, qui loquor iustitiam,
potens ad salvandum ”.
2 “ Quare ergo rubrum est indumentum tuum,
et vestimenta tua sicut calcantis in torculari? ”.
3 “ Torcular calcavi solus,
et de gentibus non erat vir mecum;
calcavi eos in furore meo
et conculcavi eos in ira mea.
Et aspersus est sanguis eorum super vestimenta mea,
et omnia indumenta mea inquinavi.
4 Dies enim ultionis in corde meo,
annus redemptionis meae venit.
5 Circumspexi, et non erat auxiliator,
miratus sum, et non fuit qui adiuvaret;
et salvavit mihi brachium meum,
et indignatio mea ipsa auxiliata est mihi.
6 Et conculcavi populos in furore meo
et contrivi eos in indignatione mea
et effudi in terram sanguinem eorum ”.
7 Miserationum Domini recordabor,
laudum Domini
super omnibus, quae reddidit nobis Dominus,
et super multitudinem bonorum domui Israel,
quae largitus est eis secundum misericordias suas
et secundum multitudinem miserationum suarum.
8 Et dixit: “ Verumtamen populus meus est,
filii, qui non deludent ”;
et factus est eis salvator.
9 In omni tribulatione eorum non legatus neque angelus,
sed ipse salvavit eos.
In dilectione sua et in indulgentia sua
ipse redemit eos
et sustulit eos et portavit eos
cunctis diebus saeculi.
10 Ipsi autem ad iracundiam provocaverunt
et afflixerunt spiritum sanctitatis eius;
et conversus est eis in inimicum
et ipse debellavit eos.
11 Et recordatus est dierum antiquorum,
Moysi et populi sui.
Ubi est qui eduxit eos de mari
cum pastore gregis sui?
Ubi est qui posuit in medio eius
spiritum sanctitatis suae?
12 Qui adduxit ad dexteram Moysi
brachium maiestatis suae,
qui scidit aquas ante eos,
ut faceret sibi nomen sempiternum,
13 qui deduxit eos per abyssos
quasi equum per desertum, et non impingebant?
14 Sicut armentum, quod descendit per vallem,
spiritus Domini fecit eos quiescere;
sic conduxisti populum tuum,
ut faceres tibi nomen gloriae.
15 Attende de caelo et vide
de habitaculo sancto tuo et gloriae tuae;
ubi est zelus tuus et fortitudo tua?
Commotio viscerum tuorum et misericordiae tuae
super me continuerunt se.
16 Tu enim pater noster.
Abraham enim nescit nos,
et Israel ignorat nos;
tu, Domine, pater noster,
redemptor noster: a saeculo nomen tuum.
17 Quare errare nos fecisti, Domine, de viis tuis,
indurasti cor nostrum, ne timeremus te?
Convertere propter servos tuos,
tribus hereditatis tuae.
18 Brevi tempore hereditaverunt populum sanctum tuum,
hostes nostri conculcaverunt sanctuarium tuum.
19 Facti sumus a saeculo,
cum non dominareris nostri,
neque invocaretur nomen tuum super nos.
Utinam dirumperes caelos et descenderes!
A facie tua montes defluerent.
