Isaiah 63 Judgment And Mercy.

The LORD will exercise both vengeance on His enemies, and redemption for the remnant (vv. 1-4). He alone will bring both salvation and fury (vv. 5-6). The LORD’s lovingkindnesses, being a covenantal truth, is the assurance of his people that He would be their savior (vv. 7-8). In particular, it was “the Angel of His Presence” who saved them, through love and pity redeeming them (v. 9). They had rebelled against Him, so that His Spirit was grieved (v. 10). He would remember the covenant through Moses and shepherd them again, and “put His Holy Spirit within them” (v. 11), “to make for Himself an everlasting name” (v. 12 Cf. vv. 13-14). Isaiah appeals, on behalf of the remnant, to the LORD in heaven as their Father and Redeemer, for Abraham was long since dead, and the nation had forsaken them (vv. 15-16). Some were hardened, but others wanted a return of the glory of the LORD in the salvation of His people (vv. 17-19).
