1 In the year that King Uzziyahu died I saw also the Lord (Adonai) sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple.
2 Above it stood the seraphim: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
3 And one cried unto another, and said: “Holy, holy, holy, is יהוה of hosts (YHWH Tsevaot); 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 mine eyes have seen the King, יהוה of hosts (YHWH Tsevaot).”
6 Then flew one of the seraphim unto 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: “Behold, this hath touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged.”
8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord (Adonai), 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 you indeed, but understand not; and see you 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 (Adonai), how long?” And He answered: “Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,
12 And יהוה 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 thereof.”
