Isaiah’s Vision of the Lord1 In the year that a King Uzziah died I b saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train ▼
▼ Or hemof his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him stood the seraphim. Each had d six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called to another and said: e “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
f the whole earth is full of his glory!” ▼
▼ Or may his glory fill the whole earth
4 And h the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and i the house was filled with smoke. 5 And I said: “Woe is me! j For I am lost; k for 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 l King, the Lord of hosts!” 6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7 And he m touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”
Isaiah’s Commission from the Lord8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for n us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” 9 And he said, “Go, and say to this people: o “‘Keep on hearing, ▼
▼ Or Hear indeedbut do not understand;
keep on seeing, ▼
▼ Or see indeedbut do not perceive.’
10 r Make the heart of this people s dull ▼
▼ Hebrew fat
and their ears heavy,
and blind their eyes;
u lest they see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their hearts,
and turn and be healed.”
11 Then I said v “How long, O Lord?”
And he said:
“Until w cities lie waste
and houses without people,
and the land is a desolate waste,
12 and the Lord removes people far away,
and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.
13 x And though a tenth remain in it,
it will be burned ▼
▼ Or purgedagain,
like a terebinth or an oak,
whose stump z remains
when it is felled.”
aa The holy seed ▼
▼ Or offspringis its stump.
