Isaiah's Vision of the Lord in His Glory

1In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted; and the train of His robea filled the temple. 2Above Him stood seraphim, each having six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3And they called out to one another:

Holy, holy, holy

is the LORD of Hosts;

His glory fills all the earth.

4The doorposts and thresholds shook at the sound of their voices, and the temple was filled with smoke.

5Then I said,

“Woe is me, for I am ruined,

because I am a man of unclean lips

dwelling among a people of unclean lips,

and my eyes have seen the King,

the LORD of Hosts.”

6Then one of the seraphim flew to me, and in his hand was a glowing coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7And with it he touched my mouth and said,

“Now that this has touched your lips,

your iniquity is removed

and your sin is atoned for.”

Isaiah's Commission

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!”

9And He replied, “Go and tell this people:

‘Be ever hearingb , but never understanding;

be ever seeing, but never perceiving.’

10Make the hearts of this people calloused;c

deafen their ears and close their eyes.d

Otherwise they might see with their eyes,

hear with their ears,

understand with their hearts,

and turn and be healed.

11Then I asked,

“How long, O Lord?”

And He replied,

“Until cities lie in ruins

without an inhabitant,

until the houses are left unoccupied,

and the land is desolate and ravaged,

12until the LORD has driven men far away,

and the land is utterly forsaken.

13And though a tenth remains in the land,

it will be burned again.

As the terebinth and oak leave stumps when felled,

so the holy seed will be a stump in the land.”
