4And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke.4And the 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 ruined! Because 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."5And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for 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, the LORD of hosts!”
