Isaiah 6

VIN(i) 1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw (discerned) the LORD seated on a throne, high and exalted. The train of his robe filled the Temple. 2 Above him were seraphs, each with six wings. With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3 They called to one another: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty. All the earth is full of his glory." 4 At the sound of their voices the foundations and thresholds trembled and the Temple was filled with smoke. 5 "Woe to me!" I cried. "I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips (a sinner) and I live among a people of unclean (filthy) lips (speech) (language). My eyes have seen the King, the LORD Almighty." 6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. 7 And he touched it on my mouth, and said, See, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin is covered. 8 And I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? And I said, Here am I: send me. 9 He said, “Go, and tell this people, ‘You hear indeed, but don’t understand. You see indeed, but don’t perceive.’ 10 Make 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, and be healed. 11 Then I said: "How long, O LORD? And He answered: "Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant, until the houses are deserted and the land is utterly desolate. 12 For the LORD shall take the men far away, so that the land shall lie waste. 13 If there is a tenth left in it, that also will in turn be consumed, as a terebinth, and as an oak, whose stump remains when they are cut down; so the holy seed is its stock.”
