Isaiah, in a vision of the Lord in his glory,
6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died, I saw the Lord
sitting on a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple.
6:2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each one had six wings.
With two he covered his face.
With two he covered his feet.
With two he flew.
6:3 One called to another, and said,“Holy, holy, holy, is Yahweh of Armies!
The whole earth is full of his glory!”
6:4 The foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called,
and the house was filled with smoke.
being terrified, has apprehensions removed.
6:5 Then I said,“Woe is me! For I am undone, because I am a man of unclean lips,
and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips:
for my eyes have seen the King, Yahweh of Armies!”
6:6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me,
having a live coal in his hand,
which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar.
6:7 He touched my mouth with it, and said,“Behold, this has touched your lips;
and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin forgiven.”
He offers himself, and is sent to shew the obstinacy of the people unto their desolation.
6:8 I heard the Lord’s voice, saying,
“Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
Then I said, “Here I am. Send me!”
6:9 He said, “Go, and tell this people,
‘You hear indeed,
but don’t understand;
and you see indeed,
but don’t perceive.’
6:10 Make the heart of this people fat.
Make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes;
lest they see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their heart,
and turn again, and be healed.”
6:11 Then I said, “Lord, how long?”
“Until cities are waste without inhabitant,
and houses without man,
and the land becomes utterly waste,
6:12 And Yahweh has removed men far away,
and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.
A remnant shall be saved.
6:13 If there is a tenth left in it,
that also will in turn be consumed:
as a terebinth, and as an oak, whose stock remains when they are felled;
so the holy seed is its stock.
