Vengeance of Yahweh

63 Who is this who comes from (A)Edom,
With (B)garments of [a]glowing colors from (C)Bozrah,
This One who is majestic in His clothing,
[b]Marching in the greatness of His power?
“It is I who speak in righteousness, (D)mighty to save.”
Why is Your clothing red,
And Your garments like the one who (E)treads in the wine press?
(F)I have trodden the wine trough alone,
And from the peoples there was no man with Me.
I also (G)trod them in My anger
And (H)trampled them in My wrath;
And (I)their [c]lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments,
And I [d]stained all My clothes.
For the (J)day of vengeance was in My heart,
And My year of redemption has come.
I looked, and there was (K)no one to help,
And I was astonished, and there was no one to uphold;
So My (L)own arm brought salvation to Me,
And My wrath upheld Me.
I (M)trod down the peoples in My anger
And made them (N)drunk in My wrath,
And I brought down their lifeblood to the earth.”

Remember the Lovingkindness of Yahweh

I shall bring to remembrance the (O)lovingkindnesses of Yahweh, the praises of Yahweh,
According to all the ways that Yahweh has dealt bountifully with us,
And the abundant (P)goodness toward the house of Israel,
Which He has dealt bountifully to them according to His (Q)compassion
And according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses.
And He said, “Surely, they are (R)My people,
Sons who will not deal falsely.”
So He became their (S)Savior.
In all their distress [e](T)He was distressed,
And the (U)angel of His presence saved them;
In His (V)love and in His mercy He (W)redeemed them,
And He (X)lifted them and carried them all the ancient days.
10 But they (Y)rebelled
And grieved His (Z)Holy Spirit;
Therefore He turned Himself to become their enemy;
He fought against them.
11 Then (AA)His people remembered the ancient days, of Moses.
Where is (AB)He who brought them up out of the sea with the [f]shepherds of His flock?
Where is He who (AC)put His Holy Spirit in the midst of [g]them,
12 Who caused His (AD)glorious arm to go at the right hand of Moses,
Who (AE)split the waters before them to make for Himself an everlasting name,
13 Who led them through the depths?
Like the horse in the wilderness, they did not (AF)stumble;
14 As the cattle which go down into the valley,
The Spirit of (AG)Yahweh gave [h]them rest.
So You (AH)led Your people,
To make for Yourself a glorious name.

Prayer for Mercy and Help

15 (AI)Look down from heaven and see from Your holy and glorious (AJ)habitation;
Where are Your (AK)zeal and Your mighty deeds?
The (AL)tumults within You and Your compassion are restrained toward me.
16 For You are our (AM)Father, though (AN)Abraham does not know us
And Israel does not recognize us.
You, O Yahweh, are our Father,
Our (AO)Redeemer from everlasting is Your name.
17 Why, O Yahweh, do You (AP)cause us to stray from Your ways
And (AQ)stiffen our heart from fearing You?
(AR)Return for the sake of Your slaves, the tribes of Your inheritance.
18 Your holy people possessed Your sanctuary for a little while;
Our adversaries have (AS)trodden it down.
19 We have become like those over whom You have never ruled,
Like those who were not called by Your name.
