Isaiah 6

Isaiah’s Vision

1In the year of a  King Uzziah’s death b  I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. 2Seraphim stood above Him, c  each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3And one called out to another and said, d  Holy, Holy, Holy, is the  Lord of hosts,
The
Lit fullness of the whole earth is His glory
,
f  whole earth is full of His glory.”

4And the
Lit door sockets
foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the
Lit house
,
i  temple was filling with smoke.
5Then I said, j  Woe is me, for I am ruined!
Because I am a man of k  unclean lips,
And I live among a l  people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the m  King, the  Lord of hosts.”

6Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the n  altar with tongs. 7He o  touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and p  your iniquity is taken away and your sin is
Lit atoned for
forgiven.”

Isaiah’s Commission

8Then I heard the r  voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then s  I said, “Here am I. Send me!” 9He said, “Go, and tell this people: Keep on t  listening, but do not perceive;
Keep on looking, but do not understand.’
10 u  Render the hearts of this people
Lit fat
,
w  insensitive,
Their ears
Lit heavy
dull,
And their eyes
Lit besmeared
dim,
z  Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
Hear with their ears,
Understand with their hearts,
And return and be healed.”

11Then I said, “Lord aa  how long?” And He answered, Until ab  cities are devastated and without inhabitant,
Houses are without people
And the land is utterly desolate,
12“The  Lord has ac  removed men far away,
And the
Or forsakenness will be great
,
ae  forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.
13Yet there will be a tenth portion in it,
And it will again be subject to burning,
Like a terebinth or an af  oak
Whose stump remains when it is felled.
The ag  holy seed is its stump.”
