[Diocese of Mauritius - Indian Ocean] Isa 63:7 I will tell of the LORD's unfailing love; I praise him for all he has done for us. He has richly blessed the people of Israel because of his mercy and constant love.
Isa 63:8 The LORD said, "They are my people; they will not deceive me." And so he saved them
Isa 63:9 from all their suffering. It was not an angel, but the LORD himself who saved them. In his love and compassion he rescued them. He had always taken care of them in the past,
Isa 63:10 but they rebelled against him and made his holy spirit sad. So the LORD became their enemy and fought against them.
Isa 63:11 But then they remembered the past, the days of Moses, the servant of the LORD, and they asked, "Where now is the LORD, who saved the leaders of his people from the sea? Where is the LORD, who gave his spirit to Moses?
Isa 63:12 Where is the LORD, who by his power did great things through Moses, dividing the waters of the sea and leading his people through the deep water, to win everlasting fame for himself ?" Led by the LORD, they were as sure-footed as wild horses, and never stumbled.
Isa 63:13 (SEE 63:12)
Isa 63:14 As cattle are led into a fertile valley, so the LORD gave his people rest. He led his people and brought honor to his name.
Isa 63:15 LORD, look upon us from heaven, where you live in your holiness and glory. Where is your great concern for us? Where is your power? Where are your love and compassion? Do not ignore us.
Isa 63:16 You are our father. Our ancestors Abraham and Jacob do not acknowledge us, but you, LORD, are our father, the one who has always rescued us.
