6 In the year that King Uzziahk died, I saw the Lordl seated on a high and loftym throne,n and the hem of his robe filled the temple. 2 SeraphimB were standing above him; they each had six wings:o with two they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew.p 3 And one called to another:
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Armies;
4 The foundations of the doorways shooks at the sound of their voices, and the temple was filled with smoke.
because I am a man of unclean lips
and live among a people of unclean lips,u
and because my eyes have seen the King,
the Lord of Armies.
Now that this has touched your lips,
your iniquity is removed
and your sin is atoned for.x
Who will I send?
Who will go for us?
Here I am. Send me.
Go! Say to these people:
Keep listening, but do not understand;y
keep looking, but do not perceive.
10 Make the mindsD of these people dull;
deafen their ears and blind their eyes;
otherwise they might see with their eyes
and hear with their ears,
understand with their minds,
turn back, and be healed.z
11 Then I said, “Until when, Lord?”aa And he replied:
Until cities lie in ruins without inhabitants,ab
houses are without people,
the land is ruined and desolate,
leaving great emptiness in the land.
it will be burned again.
Like the terebinth or the oak
that leaves a stump when felled,
= heavenly beings
Or I must be silent
