1: In 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: Above him stood the seraphim. Each one had six wings. With two he covered his face. With two he covered his feet. With two he flew.
3: One called to another, and said, "Holy, holy, holy, is Yahweh of Armies! The whole earth is full of his glory!"
4: The foundations of the thresholds 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 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, Yahweh of Armies!"
6: Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar.
7: He touched my mouth with it, and said, "Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin forgiven."
8: I heard the Lord's voice, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here I am. Send me!"
9: He said, "Go, and tell this people, 'You hear indeed, but don't understand; and you see indeed, but don't perceive.'
10: Make the heart of this people fat. 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 turn again, and be healed."
11: Then I said, "Lord, how long?" He answered, "Until cities are waste without inhabitant, and houses without man, and the land becomes utterly waste,
12: And Yahweh has removed men far away, and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.
13: If there is a tenth left in it, that also will in turn be consumed: as a terebinth, and as an oak, whose stock remains when they are felled; so the holy seed is its stock."
