Isaiah 6
The Commission of Isaiah
1#Jn 12:41; 2Ki 15:7In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple. 2#Rev 4:8; Ps 103:20Above it stood the 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#Ps 72:19; Nu 14:21One cried to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of Hosts;
the whole earth is full of His glory.”
4#Rev 15:8; Am 9:1The posts of the door moved at the voice of him who cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5#Ex 33:20; Jer 9:3–8And I said: “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#Rev 8:3–5Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar in his hand. 7#Jer 1:9; Da 10:16And he laid it on my mouth, and said, “This has touched your lips, and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged.”
8#Ge 1:26; 3:22Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
Then I said, “Here am I. Send me.”
9#Lk 8:10; Mt 13:14–15He said, “Go, and tell this people:
‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand;
keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’
10#Jer 5:21; Dt 32:15; Mt 13:15 Make the heart of this people dull,
and their ears heavy,
and shut their eyes;
lest they see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their heart,
and turn and be healed.”
11#Isa 1:7; Ps 79:5Then I said, “Lord, how long?”
And He answered:
“Until the cities are laid waste
without inhabitants,
and the houses without man,
and the land is utterly desolate,
12#Jer 4:29 and the Lord has removed men far away,
and there is a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
13#Ezr 9:2; Isa 1:9 But yet in it shall be a tenth,
and it shall return, and shall be burned,
as a terebinth tree or as an oak,
whose stump remains when it is cut down,
so the holy seed is its stump.”
