Is 6:1In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting on a high and lofty throne, and the train of His robe filled the temple.

Is 6:2Seraphim hovered over Him, each having six wings: With two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

Is 6:3And one called to the other, saying:
Holy, holy, holy, Jehovah of hosts; / The whole earth is filled with His glory.

Is 6:4And the foundations of the threshold shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.

Is 6:5Then I said,
Woe is me, for I am finished! / For I am a man of unclean lips, / And in the midst of a people of unclean lips I dwell; / Yet my eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of hosts.

Is 6:6Then one of the seraphim flew to me with an ember in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with a pair of tongs.

Is 6:7And he touched my mouth with it and said,
Now that this has touched your lips, / Your iniquity is taken away, and your sin is purged.

Is 6:8Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send? Who will go for Us? And I said, Here am I; send me.

Is 6:9And He said, Go and say to this people,
Hear indeed, but do not perceive; / And see indeed, but do not understand.

Is 6:10Make the heart of this people numb; / Dull their ears, / And seal their eyes; / Lest they see with their eyes and hear with their ears, / And their heart perceive and return, and they are healed.

Is 6:11And I said, For how long, Lord? And He said,
Until cities lie devastated, / Without inhabitants, / And houses are without people, / And the land is devastated and a waste;

Is 6:12And Jehovah has sent men far away from it, / And desolate places abound in the midst of the land.

Is 6:13But there will still be a tenth part in it; / And it in turn is to be burned / Like a terebinth or an oak, / Whose stump remains after its felling; / Its stump will be a holy seed.
