1 In 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.
2 Seraphim 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.
3 And one called to the other, saying: Holy, holy, holy, Jehovah of hosts; The whole earth is filled with His glory.
4 And the foundations of the threshold shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 Then 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.
6 Then 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.
7 And 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.
8 Then 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.
9 And He said to me, Go and say to this people, Hear indeed, but do not perceive; And see indeed, but do not understand.
10 Make 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.
11 And 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;
12 And Jehovah has sent men far away from it, And desolate places abound in the midst of the land.
13 But 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.
