Isa 62:7-12 – The Redeemed of The Lord… You Shall Be Called

[Study Aired July 12, 2020]

Isa 62:7  And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
Isa 62:8  The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured:
Isa 62:9  But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.
Isa 62:10  Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.
Isa 62:11  Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
Isa 62:12  And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

Before reading the first verse of our study today, we must include verse 6 to give us the context for the admonition we are given in verse 7.

Isa 62:6  I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,

There it is… “Ye that make mention of the Lord.” That is who we are. It is those who “fear the Lord [and] speak often one to another”:

Mal 3:16  Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
Mal 3:17  And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
Mal 3:18  Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.

Those who “speak … one to another and fear the Lord” here in Malachi 3 are the “watchmen upon the walls of Jerusalem” of Isaiah 62:7. The Lord is calling us His “watchmen”. As such we, His body, are commanded, “Keep not silence… give Him no rest [give the Lord no rest], till He establish, and till He make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.”

Isa 62:7  And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

If you and I are speaking to one another out of the fear of the Lord, as Malachi 3 reveals, we are not going to be gossiping about how carnal our other brothers in the body are. We will not be complaining about how badly our brothers in Babylon are behaving. If we fear the Lord, we will be speaking to one another about the Lord’s sovereignty over all good and evil. We will be expressing our gratitude for how the Lord is showing us what abominations are within us and how we are so very blessed to be dying daily to our old man and not becoming weary in well doing.  We will first speak of how we ourselves are struggling to keep Jerusalem within us pure and guard against every attempt of the adversary to breach the walls of Jerusalem within us. Then the Lord will grant us to also guard against the abominations of false doctrines which are also constantly assaulting the walls of our corporate “Jerusalem above, the mother of us all”.

Eze 9:1  He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his destroying weapon in his hand.
Eze 9:2  And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer’s inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar.
Eze 9:3  And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side;
Eze 9:4  And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.
Eze 9:5  And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:
Eze 9:6  Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.
Eze 9:7  And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.
Eze 9:8  And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon Jerusalem?
Eze 9:9  Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not.
Eze 9:10  And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.
Eze 9:11  And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded me.

The Lord’s elect are the ones who have been given “charge over the city”. That is our commission as the Lord’s “watchmen upon [the] walls [of] Jerusalem”. Why would we as His watchmen be told, “Give Him no rest till He make Jerusalem a praise in the earth?” Christ Himself answers that question for us in His parable about the importunate widow who is seeking vengeance against her adversary in the kingdom of God, which is within us.

This parable explains why we are told to “Give [the Lord] no rest, till He establish, till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth”:

Luk 18:1  And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Luk 18:2  Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:
Luk 18:3  And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
Luk 18:4  And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;
Luk 18:5  Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
Luk 18:6  And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.
Luk 18:7  And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
Luk 18:8  I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

This parable is a perfect example of how the Lord uses people and things, which seem to be totally unfit to be a figure or a type of heavenly matters, to make a spiritual point. The point being made is clearly stated: “That men ought always to pray.” This unrelenting ‘widow’ typifies us as ‘watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem’. Jerusalem is where the Lord’s throne is located within us, and this judge typifies our heavenly Father who will avenge us of the offences of our old man against the new man within us.

Where else do we see the Lord’s elect seeking vengeance against their enemies?

Rev 6:9  And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:
Rev 6:10  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?
Rev 6:11  And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

Notice where the Lord’s watchmen are located: “I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem…” A ‘wall’ symbolizes protection against our enemies. Here is what Nabal’s servants told Abigail about David’s men:

1Sa 25:14  But one of the young men told Abigail, Nabal’s wife, saying, Behold, David sent messengers out of the wilderness to salute our master; and he railed on them.
1Sa 25:15  But the men were very good unto us, and we were not hurt, neither missed we any thing, as long as we were conversant with them, when we were in the fields:
1Sa 25:16  They were a wall unto us [They protected us] both by night and day, all the while we were with them keeping the sheep.
1Sa 25:17  Now therefore know and consider what thou wilt do; for evil is determined against our master, and against all his household: for he is such a son of Belial, that a man cannot speak to him.

There is a lot of talk about walls these days. There is a secular proverb which has a Biblical foundation. It says, “Good fences make for good neighbors.” The scriptures bear out that proverb because we are told there is a great wall around the Lord’s Jerusalem. Christ and His words and His doctrines are that wall, and He does not let anything that is defiled into His “Jerusalem”:

Rev 21:9  And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
Rev 21:10  And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
Rev 21:11  Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
Rev 21:12  And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

This angel who is showing us “the bride, the Lamb’s wife” is just another symbol of the “watchmen upon the walls of Jerusalem who give the Lord no rest till He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.” These pleading watchmen are also symbolized by the importunate widow who will give the judge no rest until she is avenged of her enemies. The judge she is constantly importuning is a type of the Lord. The importunate widow in type is the same as the earnest ‘souls under the altar’ who are also importuning the Lord to be revenged of their enemies. This angel who shows us “the bride the Lamb’s wife” is the very same angel who shows us “the great whore who rules over the kings of the earth”.

Rev 17:1  And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
Rev 17:2  With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
Rev 17:3  So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

The revelation of this great whore here in Revelation 17 is just another way of showing us “the image of jealousy” of Ezekiel 8:5 and “the abominations committed in Jerusalem” of Ezekiel 9:4. These all “are types of us”:

1Co 10:6 Now these things became types of us, for us not to be lusters after evil things (CLV)

This wall upon which the Lord’s watchmen stand is the Lord Himself and His words within us. We are told He is the same as His own Words:

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Those who know Christ and His Father have the words of Christ within them, and in that sense they, too, are Christ, as He Himself tells us:

Mat 25:40  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Paul confirms that Christ considers us to be Himself in:

Act 22:7  And I fell unto the ground, and heard a voice saying unto me, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
Act 22:8  And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest.

This means that if Christ is our protective ‘wall’ and we are Him, then we, too, are that ‘wall’ upon which we are His watchmen who give Him no rest until He establishes us and makes us a praise for Him in this earth.

It is the same message repeatedly written. We are those who are symbolized by the watchmen on the walls of Jerusalem. We are symbolized by David’s wall of protective men. We are symbolized by the avengers of Ezekiel 9, by the importunate widow seeking to be avenged of her enemies, and by the importunate souls under the altar, seeking to be avenged of their enemies. We are on the walls of Jerusalem importuning the Lord to help us fight the spiritual warfare which is even now being waged over the Lord’s Jerusalem, and we are not to give Him rest until He has established us and made us a praise in the earth of our old man.

If we are given to overcome the enemies of the kingdom of God within us, showing no pity to our enemies within, then in time we will be granted to wear a crown of life at the “resurrection to life” ruling with our Lord for a thousand years, bringing peace to this world for the first time in its history. We will then, one last time, experience what it is like to be rejected by those to whom we have given so much, all by the Lord’s design. That last rejection will give Him the occasion He is seeking to completely extinguish His clay vessel prototype and finish His work of making all mankind into His own image.

Joh 5:27  And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
Joh 5:28  Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
Joh 5:29  And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of lifeand they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

Rev 20:4  And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Rev 20:5  But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Rev 20:6  Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

That is the glory which awaits those watchmen whom the Lord has placed upon the walls of His Jerusalem to importune Him to bring them to that place of being established and made a praise in the earth. When the Lord accomplishes this in us there will be no doubt who worked it all:

1Ch 16:28  Give unto the LORD, ye kindreds of the people, give unto the LORD glory and strength.
1Ch 16:29  Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

1Co 1:26  For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1Co 1:27  But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Co 1:28  And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
1Co 1:29  That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1Co 1:30  But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1Co 1:31  That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Truly “we are His workmanship” (Eph 2:10):

Isa 62:8  The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured:
Isa 62:9  But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.

“I will no longer give your corn to be meat for your enemies” is the same as telling us that when our efforts are “meat for [our] enemies” it was really the Lord who gives us up as food for our adversaries. This is what Christ meant when He gave the dust, which we are, to be for the nourishment of the adversary:

Gen 3:14  And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Verse 15 explains what is meant by “dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life”. Eating what we have gathered and drinking what we have brought is another way of saying that we are given to be the serpent’s food. When we are finally given to “bruise [the head of the serpent]” that is when the Lord “will no more give [our] corn to be meat for [our] adversaries [and He will no longer give our adversaries to] drink [our] wine”. It is all accomplished by the Lord Himself, and by Him making us to know and Him making us to do what the Lord tells us to do. Until that preordained time His word, which is our “corn”, will continue to be taken from us and eaten by our enemies in Babylon.

Mat 13:18  Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
Mat 13:19  When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

It was Christ who brought the good news of the kingdom of God… “the word of the kingdom”. His words and His doctrines are the things to which Isaiah refers when he tells us we will eat what we have gathered and drink “in the courts of His holiness” what we have brought together. It is His doctrine, as well as the doctrine of John the Baptist, which teaches us that John the Baptist fulfilled these words:

Isa 40:1  Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.
Isa 40:2  Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins.
Isa 40:3  The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Take note that it is the Lord’s elect who also “receive of the Lord’s hand double for all [their] sins”. This is how John applied these words to himself:

Joh 1:19  And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?
Joh 1:20  And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.
Joh 1:21  And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.
Joh 1:22  Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?
Joh 1:23  He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias [Isa 40:3].

Notice again how the preceding two verses refer to “My people”.

Isa 40:1  Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.
Isa 40:2  Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins.
Isa 40:3  The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Jerusalem is called “My people”, and we have demonstrated the “The New Jerusalem… the bride, the Lamb’s wife” is another type and shadow of us as the Lord’s body, which is the church (Col 1:24-27). These are some of the most comforting words of scripture, and they are addressed to us as the Lord’s chosen elect.

These words in Isaiah 62 are very similar to the words of Isa 40:1-3:

Isa 62:10  Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.
Isa 62:11  Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

Verse 11 is also repeated in Isaiah 40:

Isa 40:10  Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.

The Lord’s words will never pass away (Mat 24:35). That means they are applicable in every generation (Mat 24:32-34).

Mat 24:32  Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:
Mat 24:33  So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
Mat 24:34  Verily I say unto you, This generation [the generation reading these words verse 15] shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
Mat 24:35  Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Mat 24:15  When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)

This is all confirmation of the New Testament doctrine that those in Christ, whether Jew or Gentile, are the true “seed of Abraham”:

Gal 3:28  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:29  And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

An essential part of the “is, was and will be…  shall never pass away” words of Christ are those words which place before us the order in which every word of God will be fulfilled. Our Lord is a God of order:

1Co 14:40  Let all things be done decently and in order.

This is repeated in the very next chapter:

1Co 15:22  For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1Co 15:23  But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.
1Co 15:24  Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
1Co 15:25  For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
1Co 15:26  The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

That is His order, and it will be kept. Christ is first of the firstfruits, “afterwards they that are Christ’s firstfruits, and then comes the [final harvest at] the end” of the year.

All of these glorious promises must be fulfilled in that very order, which means these great and glorious promises will be fulfilled first in the Lord’s Christ, His firstfruits, who will then be used as the channel of the Lord’s mercies upon all the rest of mankind.

Rom 11:30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
Rom 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
Rom 11:32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

That is why:

Isa 62:12  And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

This is confirmed by the holy spirit in the New Testament in the parable of the workers in the Lord’s vineyard:

Mat 20:1  For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
Mat 20:2  And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
Mat 20:3  And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
Mat 20:4  And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.
Mat 20:5  Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.
Mat 20:6  And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?
Mat 20:7  They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.
Mat 20:8  So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.
Mat 20:9  And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.
Mat 20:10  But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
Mat 20:11  And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
Mat 20:12  Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.
Mat 20:13  But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?
Mat 20:14  Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.
Mat 20:15  Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?
Mat 20:16  So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

The Lord’s order is reiterated in these words:

Eph 1:3  Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
Eph 1:4  According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
Eph 1:5  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
Eph 1:6  To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
Eph 1:7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
Eph 1:8  Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
Eph 1:9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
Eph 1:10  That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
Eph 1:11  In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:
Eph 1:12  That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.

“The mystery of His will” (vs 9 above) includes the order in which that ‘will’ is being carried out. That is why we are told there will be a thousand-year reign with Christ by those who are given to have a part in the “blessed and holy… first resurrection”:

Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
Rev 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

That is our study for today. Next week we will begin chapter 63:

Isa 63:1 Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
Isa 63:2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?
Isa 63:3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.
Isa 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
Isa 63:5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.
Isa 63:6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.
