63 Who is this coming from Edom [34:5], from the city of Bozrah, ·dressed in red [or in crimson-stained garments; C Edom means “red”]? Who is this dressed in ·fine clothes [honorable clothing; or royal garments] and marching forward with his great power?
He says, “I, the Lord, speak ·what is right [in righteousness]. I ·have the power [am mighty] to save you.”
2 Someone asks, “Why are your clothes bright red as if you had ·walked [stomped; trodden] on the grapes to make wine?”
3 The Lord answers, “I have ·walked [stomped; trodden] in the winepress alone, and no one among the nations ·helped [L was with] me. I was angry and ·walked [stomped; trod] on the nations and crushed them because of my anger. Blood splashed on my clothes, and I stained all my clothing. 4 ·I chose a time to punish people [L …for the day of vengeance was in my heart], and the ·time [year] has come for me to ·save [redeem]. 5 I looked around, but I saw no one to help me. I was ·surprised [shocked; appalled] that no one supported me [59:16]. So ·I used my own power to save my people [L my own arm accomplished salvation/victory]; my own ·anger [wrath] ·supported [sustained; upheld] me. 6 While I was angry, I ·walked on the [trampled] nations. In my ·anger [wrath] I ·punished them [made them drunk; 49:26; 51:23] and poured their ·blood [L juice] on the ·ground [earth].”
