Isaiah 63:4-6 The Passion Translation (TPT)

For a day of vengeance[a] was in my heart,
    and the time for my redeeming work had come.
I looked, but there was no one to help me.
    I was amazed that there was no one to support me.
    So my own power[b] accomplished salvation,
    and my wrath[c] sustained me.
So I trampled down nations in my anger
    and shattered them[d] in my fury
    and spilled their blood on the ground.”


  1. Isaiah 63:4 A “day of vengeance” has multiple applications. It can refer to the release of the Jews from Babylon, the release of the church from the Dark Ages, the release of creation from the bondage of corruption brought by sin (Rom. 8:19-21), or, as some would claim, a future war of Armageddon. But the context favors a prophetic fulfillment when Jesus Christ was crucified and rendered judgment on principalities and powers by the blood of his cross and his triumphant resurrection.
  2. Isaiah 63:5 Or “my own arm,” a symbol of God power.
  3. Isaiah 63:5 Some Hebrew manuscripts have (weṣidqathi): “My victorious [right hand] sustained me.”
  4. Isaiah 63:6 As translated from most Hebrew manuscripts and Targum (Aramaic); however, some manuscripts read “I made them drunk with my fury.”
