1In the year that King Uzziah died, I beheld my Lord seated on a high and lofty throne; and the skirts of His robe filled the Temple. 2Seraphs stood in attendance on Him. Each of them had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his legs, and with two he would fly.

3And one would call to the other, “Holy, holy, holy! The LORD of Hosts! His presence fills all the earth!”

4The doorposts d Meaning of Heb. uncertain. would shake at the sound of the one who called, and the House kept filling with smoke. 5I cried,

“Woe is me; I am lost! For I am a man e‐ I.e., speaking impiety; cf. 9.16 , and contrast “pure of speech [lit. ‘lip’]” in Zeph. 3.9 . of unclean lips ‐e I.e., speaking impiety; cf. 9.16 , and contrast “pure of speech [lit. ‘lip’]” in Zeph. 3.9 . And I live among a people Of unclean lips; Yet my own eyes have beheld The King LORD of Hosts.”

6Then one of the seraphs flew over to me with a live coal, which he had taken from the altar with a pair of tongs. 7 He touched it to my lips and declared,

“Now that this has touched your lips, Your guilt shall depart And your sin be purged away.”

8Then I heard the voice of my Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I; send me.” 9 And He said, “Go, say to that people:

‘Hear, indeed, but do not understand; See, indeed, but do not grasp.’ 10Dull that people's mind, Stop its ears, And seal its eyes— Lest, seeing with its eyes And hearing with its ears, It also grasp with its mind, And repent and save a Lit. “heal.” itself.”

11I asked, “How long, my Lord?” And He replied: “Till towns lie waste without inhabitants And houses without people, And the ground lies waste and desolate— 12For the LORD will banish the population— And deserted sites are many In the midst of the land.

13“But while a tenth part yet remains in it, it shall repent. It shall be ravaged like the terebinth and the oak, of which stumps are left even when they are felled: its stump shall be a holy seed.”
