Isaiah 6

6
Isaiah’s Vision of the Lord
1In the year that #ch. 1:1; 2 Chr. 26:16-21 King Uzziah died I #[John 12:41]saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and the train#6:1 Or hem of his robe filled the temple. 2Above him stood the seraphim. Each had #Rev. 4:8six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3And one called to another and said:
# [See ver. 2 above] “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
# Ps. 72:19 the whole earth is full of his glory!”#6:3 Or may his glory fill the whole earth
4And #Amos 9:1 the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and #1 Kgs. 8:10, 11; Rev. 15:8; [Ex. 19:18]the house was filled with smoke. 5And I said: “Woe is me! #[Judg. 13:22] For I am lost; #[Luke 5:8] for 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 #ch. 33:17; Jer. 10:10; [1 Sam. 12:12]King, the Lord of hosts!”
6Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. 7And he #Jer. 1:9; Dan. 10:16touched my mouth and said: “Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for.”
Isaiah’s Commission from the Lord
8And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for #See Gen. 1:26us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” 9And he said, “Go, and say to this people:
# Cited Matt. 13:14, 15; Acts 28:26, 27; [Mark 4:12; Luke 8:10; Rom. 11:8] “‘Keep on hearing,#6:9 Or Hear indeed but do not understand;
keep on seeing,#6:9 Or see indeed but do not perceive.’
10 # Cited John 12:40 Make the heart of this people #Ps. 119:70 dull,#6:10 Hebrew fat
and their ears heavy,
and blind their eyes;
# [Jer. 5:21] lest they see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their hearts,
and turn and be healed.”
11Then I said, #Ps. 79:5; 89:46 “How long, O Lord?”
And he said:
“Until #[ch. 1:7; 27:10]cities lie waste
without inhabitant,
and houses without people,
and the land is a desolate waste,
12and the Lord removes people far away,
and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.
13 # [ch. 10:22] And though a tenth remain in it,
it will be burned#6:13 Or purged again,
like a terebinth or an oak,
whose stump #[Job 14:7] remains
when it is felled.”
# Ezra 9:2 The holy seed#6:13 Or offspring is its stump.
