SEV Biblia, Chapter 63:7 Â¶ De las misericordias del SEÑOR haré memoria, de las alabanzas del SEÑOR, conforme a todo lo que el SEÑOR nos ha dado, y de la grandeza de su beneficencia a la Casa de Israel, que les ha hecho según sus misericordias, y según la multitud de sus miseraciones.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 63:7 Verse 7. I will mention the loving-kindnesses of the Lord] The prophet connects the preceding mercies of God to the Jews with the present prospect he has of their redemption by the Messiah; thus making a circle in which eternal goodness revolves. The remaining part of this chapter, with the whole chapter following, contains a penitential confession and supplication of the Israelites in their present state of dispersion, in which they have so long marvellously subsisted, and still continue to subsist, as a people; cast out of their country; without any proper form of civil polity or religious worship, their temple destroyed, their city desolated and lost to them, and their whole nation scattered over the face of the earth, apparently deserted and cast off by the God of their fathers, as no longer his peculiar people.
They begin with acknowledging God's great mercies and favours to their nation, and the ungrateful returns made to them on their part, that by their disobedience they had forfeited the protection of God, and had caused him to become their adversary. And now the prophet represents them, induced by the memory of the great things that God had done for them, as addressing their humble supplication for the renewal of his mercies. They beseech him to regard them in consideration of his former loving-kindness, they acknowledge him for their Father and Creator, they confess their wickedness and hardness of heart, they entreat his forgiveness, and deplore their present miserable condition under which they have so long suffered. It seems designed as a formulary of humiliation for the Israelites, in order to their conversion.
The whole passage is in the elegiac form, pathetic and elegant; but it has suffered much in our present copy by the mistakes of transcribers.

Matthew Henry Commentary
Christ's victory over his enemies. (Is. 63:1-6) His mercy toward his church. (Is. 63:7-14) The prayer of the church. (Is. 63:15-19)
Is. 63:1-6 The prophet, in vision, beholds the Messiah returning i triumph from the conquest of his enemies, of whom Edom was a type Travelling, not as wearied by the combat, but, in the greatness of his strength, prepared to overcome every opposing power. Messiah declare that he had been treading the wine-press of the wrath of God, Rev 14:19; 19:13, and by his own power, without any human help, he ha crushed his obstinate opposers, for the day of vengeance was determine on, being the appointed season for rescuing his church. Once, he appeared on earth in apparent weakness, to pour out his precious bloo as an atonement for our sins; but he will in due time appear in the greatness of his strength. The vintage ripens apace; the day of vengeance, fixed and determined on, approaches apace; let sinners see to be reconciled to their righteous Judge, ere he brings down their strength to the earth. Does Christ say, "I come quickly?" let ou hearts reply, "Even so, come; let the year of the redeemed come."
Is. 63:7-14 The latter part of this chapter, and the whole of the next seem to express the prayers of the Jews on their conversation. The acknowledge God's great mercies and favours to their nation. The confess their wickedness and hardness of heart; they entreat his forgiveness, and deplore the miserable condition under which they have so long suffered. The only-begotten Son of the Father became the Ange or Messenger of his love; thus he redeemed and bare them with tenderness. Yet they murmured, and resisted his Holy Spirit, despisin and persecuting his prophets, rejecting and crucifying the promise Messiah. All our comforts and hopes spring from the loving-kindness of the Lord, and all our miseries and fears from our sins. But he is the Saviour, and when sinners seek after him, who in other ages glorifie himself by saving and feeding his purchased flock, and leading the safely through dangers, and has given his Holy Spirit to prosper the labours of his ministers, there is good ground to hope they ar discovering the way of peace.
Is. 63:15-19 They beseech him to look down on the abject condition of their once-favoured nation. Would it not be glorious to his name to remove the veil from their hearts, to return to the tribes of his inheritance? The Babylonish captivity, and the after-deliverance of the Jews, were shadows of the events here foretold. The Lord looks dow upon us in tenderness and mercy. Spiritual judgments are more to be dreaded than any other calamities; and we should most carefully avoi those sins which justly provoke the Lord to leave men to themselves an to their deceiver. "Our Redeemer from everlasting" is thy name; the people have always looked upon thee as the God to whom they migh appeal. The Lord will hear the prayers of those who belong to him, an deliver them from those not called by his name __________________________________________________________________
