Gary H. Everett's Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures
Isaiah 63



Verses 1-19

Isaiah 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.

Isaiah 63:3 — "I have trodden the winepress alone" - Comments- In her book Caught Up Into Heaven Marietta Davis comments that this phrase is a reference to the fact that Jesus Christ had to go to the Cross alone. 89]

89] Marietta Davis, Caught Up Into Heaven (New Kensington, Pennsylvania: Whitaker House, 1982), 143.

Isaiah 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.

Isaiah 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.

Isaiah 63:5Word Study on "uphold" - Strong says the Hebrew word "uphold" ( סָמַךְ) (H 5564) means, "to prop, to lean upon. or take hold of."

Isaiah 63:5Comments- The Lord was looking for someone to intercede for the land of Moab so that he would not destroy it. How often the Lord looks for an intercessor to lift up a lost soul that His wrath might not destroy this soul in eternal hell. Since "broad is the way, and wide is the gate that leads to destruction, and may there be that go in thereat," it must mean that there must be a shortage of intercessors.

Matthew 7:13, "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:"

Isaiah 63:5 Scripture Reference- See:

Isaiah 59:16, "And he saw that there was no Prayer of Manasseh , and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him."
