Isaiah Chapter 6

1In the year of the death of King Uzziah, I saw the Lord* sitting on a throne, high and exalted, and his robe-train filled the temple. 2Seraphim were standing around him, each having six wings. With two each covered his face, and with two each covered his feet, and with two each flew. 3And one called to another and said,

“Holy, holy, holy,

Is the Lord of hosts.

His glory is the fulness

Of all the earth.”

4And the bases of the thresholds moved at the sound of the one calling, and the house became filled with smoke. 5Then I said,

“Woe is me,

For I am reduced to silence,

For I am a man of unclean lips,

And I live among a people of unclean lips,

For my eyes have seen the king

– The Lord of hosts.”

6And one of the Seraphim flew towards me, in whose hand was a hot coal in tongs, which he had taken from the altar. 7And he brought it in contact with my mouth, and he said,

“Look, this has touched your lips,

And your iniquity has departed,

And your sin has been expiated.”

8And I heard the voice of the Lord*, who said,

“Whom shall I send,

And who will go on our behalf?”

And I said, “Here I am; send me.” 9And he said,

“Go and say to this people,

‘You will definitely hear

But certainly not understand,

And you will definitely see

But certainly not discern.

10Make the heart of this people obtuse,

And make their ears dull,

And cover their eyes,

Lest they should see with their eyes,

Or hear with their ears,

And their heart would understand,

And they would come back,

And it would heal them.’ ”

11Then I said, “For how long is it, Lord*?” And he said,

“Until the cities have become desolate,

For want of an inhabitant,

And houses, for want of a man,

And the ground will be laid waste in desolation.

12And the Lord will put man at a distance,

And the abandonment within the land will be great.

13But there will still be a tenth in it,

For that tenth will return,

But it will be ravaged.

Yet just as the terebinth and the oak

After felling retain a stump,

So shall the holy seed be, as its stump.”
