A Sermon on Isaiah 63:1-6

The LORD’s Day of Vengeance

Who is this who comes from Edom,
in crimsoned garments from Bozrah,
he who is splendid in his apparel,
marching in the greatness of his strength?
“It is I, speaking in righteousness,
mighty to save.”


Why is your apparel red,
and your garments like his who treads in the winepress?


“I have trodden the winepress alone,
and from the peoples no one was with me;
I trod them in my anger
and trampled them in my wrath;
their lifeblood spattered on my garments,
and stained all my apparel.
For the day of vengeance was in my heart,
and my year of redemption had come.
I looked, but there was no one to help;
I was appalled, but there was no one to uphold;
so my own arm brought me salvation,
and my wrath upheld me.
I trampled down the peoples in my anger;
I made them drunk in my wrath,
and I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.” (ESV)

What does it mean that the Lord has conquered Edom? In this sermon from Isaiah 63:1-6, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones preaches on the prophecy of Isaiah where God has conquered Edom, the enemy of Israel. This prophecy looks forward to the day when God will destroy all the enemies of His people and those that persecute the Church. How does He do this? He does this by dying upon the cross for sinners. Jesus Christ is the means of overcoming sin, evil, and the Devil. Jesus has come to make sinners righteous by granting them his righteousness and adopting them into God’s family. All this is seen in God overcoming Edom. What does this mean for our everyday lives? This declaration of what God has done in Jesus Christ is our great and only hope. The truth that God has saved His people by His own hand is at the heart of the Gospel because Jesus alone saves us. It also tells us that all who reject the Gospel are enemies of God and under His judgment. The only escape from the wrath of God is through faith in Christ. This sermon is a call for all to believe in Jesus.

Isaiah 63:1-6, New American Standard Bible

God’s Vengeance on the Nations

1Who is this who comes from Edom,

With garments of glowing colors from Bozrah,

This One who is majestic in His apparel,

Marching in the greatness of His strength?

“It is I, the One who speaks in righteousness, mighty to save.”

2Why is Your apparel red,

And Your garments like one who treads in the wine press?

3“I have trodden the wine trough alone,

And from the peoples there was no one with Me.

I also trod them in My anger

And trampled them in My wrath;

And their lifeblood is sprinkled on My garments,

And I stained all My clothes.

4For the day of vengeance was in My heart,

And My year of redemption has come.

5I looked, but there was no one to help,

And I was astonished and there was no one to uphold;

So My own arm brought salvation to Me,

And My wrath upheld Me.

6I trampled down the peoples in My anger

And made them drunk with My wrath,

And I poured out their lifeblood on the earth.”

Isaiah 63:1-6, King James Version

1Who 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. 2Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat? 3I 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. 4For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come. 5And 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. 6And 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.


About Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines".
