Isaiah 61In the year that king Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple. 2Above 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. 3One called to another, and said,
"Holy, holy, holy, is Jehovah of hosts!
The whole earth is full of his glory!"
4The foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke. 5Then 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, Jehovah of hosts!"
6Then 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. 7He touched my mouth with it, and said, "Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin forgiven."
8I heard the Lord's voice, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?"
Then I said, "Here I am. Send me!"
9He said, "Go, and tell this people,
'You hear indeed,
but do not understand;
and you see indeed,
but do not perceive.' ▼
10Make the heart of this people fat, and 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." ▼
▼6:9-10 LXX: "and I should heal them." Targum: "and be forgiven." Matthew 13:14-15; John 12:40; Acts 28:26-27
11Then I said, "Lord, how long?"
"Until cities are waste without inhabitant,
and houses without man,
and the land becomes utterly waste,
12And Jehovah has removed men far away,
and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.
13If 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."
