THE CONTEST AND VICTORY OF EMMANUEL.
Isaiah lxiii. 1-6.
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 righteous-
ness, mighty to save. Wherefore art thou red in thine
apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the
wine-fat? i have trodden the wine-press 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. For the day of vengeance is in my heart,
and the year of my redeemed is come. 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. 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 298
