1In the year that king Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne; he was high and elevated, and the hem of his robe filled the temple.
2Above him were the seraphim; each one had six wings; with two each covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.
3Each one called to another and said, “Holy, holy, holy, is Yahweh of hosts! The whole earth is full of his glory.”
4The foundations of the thresholds shook at the voices of those who were crying out, and the house was filled with smoke.
5Then I said, “Woe is me! For I am doomed because I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, because my eyes have seen the King, Yahweh, Yahweh of hosts!”
6Then one of the seraphim flew to me; he had a glowing coal in his hand, that he had taken with the tongs from off the altar.
7He touched my mouth with it and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt has been taken away, and your sin atoned for.”
8I heard the voice of the Lord say, “Whom shall I send; who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am; send me.”
9He said, “Go and tell this people, 'Listen, but do not understand; see, but do not perceive.'
10Make the heart of this people insensitive, and their ears dull, and blind their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and then turn and be healed.”
11Then I said, “Lord, how long?” He answered, “Until cities crash into ruins and are without inhabitants, and the houses are without people, and the land falls into a desolate waste,
12and until Yahweh has sent the people far away, and the solitude of the land is great.
13Even if a tenth of the people remain in it, it will again be destroyed; as a terebinth or an oak is cut down and whose trunk remains, the holy seed is in its stump.”
