The Lord’s Day of Vengeance

63 Who is this coming from Edom(A)
in crimson-stained garments from Bozrah—
this one who is splendid in his apparel,
striding in his formidable[a] might?
It is I, proclaiming vindication,[b]
powerful to save.
Why are your clothes red,
and your garments like one who treads a winepress?(B)
I trampled the winepress alone,
and no one from the nations was with me.
I trampled them in my anger
and ground them underfoot in my fury;
their blood spattered my garments,
and all my clothes were stained.
For I planned the day of vengeance,(C)
and the year of my redemption[c] came.

I looked, but there was no one to help,(D)
and I was amazed that no one assisted;
so my arm accomplished victory for me,
and my wrath assisted me.

I crushed nations in my anger;
I made them drunk with my wrath(E)
and poured out their blood on the ground.(F)

10 That day belongs to the Lord, the God of Armies,
a day of vengeance to avenge himself
against his adversaries.

because it will be a sacrifice(A) to the Lord, the God of Armies,

The Humiliation of Babylon

28 There is a voice of fugitives and refugees
from the land of Babylon.
The voice announces in Zion the vengeance of the Lord our God,
the vengeance for his temple.(A)
29 Summon the archers to Babylon,
all who string the bow;
camp all around her; let none escape.
Repay her according to her deeds;(B)
just as she has done, do the same to her,
for she has acted arrogantly against the Lord,
against the Holy One of Israel.(C)

18 Their silver and their gold
will be unable to rescue them
on the day of the Lord’s wrath.(A)
The whole earth will be consumed
by the fire of his jealousy,(B)
for he will make a complete,
yes, a horrifying end
of all the inhabitants of the earth.
