4.-6. “In the second half of this message (63:4-6) God explains the imagery of 63:1-3 and reveals why he will do these things. The motivation for God acting this way was because a ‘day of vengeance, vindication’ was in his heart.” (Smith, 660)
4. “This is His judgment upon the earth, and it is defined as the day of vengeance.” (McGee, 340)
