1: In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and elevated, and his train filled the temple. 2: Above it stood seraphim: each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3: And one cried to another, and said, Holy, holy, holy [is] the LORD of hosts: the whole earth [is] full of his glory. 4: And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke. 5: Then said I, Woe [is] me! for I am undone; because 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. 6: Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having a live coal in his hand, [which] he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7: And he laid [it] upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thy iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8: Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here [am] I; send me. 9: And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 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 convert, and be healed. 11: Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities shall be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate; 12: And the LORD shall have removed men far away, and [there be] a great forsaking in the midst of the land. 13: But yet in it [shall be] a tenth, and [it] shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil-tree, and as an oak whose substance [is] in them, when they cast [their leaves]: [so] the holy seed [shall be] the substance of it.
