Isaiah 63:5-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

I looked about, but there was no one to help,
    I was appalled that there was no one to lend support;
So my own arm brought me victory
    and my own wrath lent me support.
I trampled down the peoples in my anger,
    I made them drunk in my wrath,
    and I poured out their blood upon the ground.”

Prayer for the Return of God’s Favor

[a]The loving deeds of the Lord I will recall,
    the glorious acts of the Lord,
Because of all the Lord has done for us,
    the immense goodness to the house of Israel,
Which he has granted according to his mercy
    and his many loving deeds.


  1. 63:7–64:11 This lament of the exilic community recalls God’s protection, and especially the memories of the exodus (vv. 7–14), before begging the Lord to come once more to their aid (63:15–64:3), as they confess their sins (64:4–11). The prayer is marked by God’s “holy spirit” (63:10–11, 14) and fatherhood (63:8, 9, 16; 64:7).
