Isaiah 63:1

The Victorious Divine Warrior

63:1 Who is this who comes from Edom, 1 

dressed in bright red, coming from Bozrah? 2 

Who 3  is this one wearing royal attire, 4 

who marches confidently 5  because of his great strength?

“It is I, the one who announces vindication,

and who is able to deliver!” 6 

Isaiah 63:7

A Prayer for Divine Intervention

63:7 I will tell of the faithful acts of the Lord,

of the Lord’s praiseworthy deeds.

I will tell about all 7  the Lord did for us,

the many good things he did for the family of Israel, 8 

because of 9  his compassion and great faithfulness.

1 sn Edom is here an archetype for the Lord’s enemies. See 34:5.

2 tn Heb “[in] bright red garments, from Bozrah.”

3 tn The interrogative particle is understood by ellipsis; note the first line of the verse.

4 tn Heb “honored in his clothing”; KJV, ASV “glorious in his apparel.”

5 tc The Hebrew text has צָעָה (tsaah), which means “stoop, bend” (51:14). The translation assumes an emendation to צָעַד (tsaad, “march”; see BDB 858 s.v. צָעָה).

6 tn Heb “I, [the one] speaking in vindication [or “righteousness”], great to deliver.”

7 tn Heb “according to all which.”

8 tn Heb “greatness of goodness to the house of Israel which he did for them.”

9 tn Heb “according to.”
