aIn the year that king bUzziah died cI saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and ||his train filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had dsix wings; ewith twain he covered his face, and fwith twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3 And †one cried unto another, and said,
gHoly, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts:
4 And the posts of the †door moved at the voice of him that cried, and kthe house was filled with smoke. 5 lThen said I, 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 mine eyes have seen mthe King, the Lord of hosts. 6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, †having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off nthe altar: 7 And he †olaid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and pthy sin purged.
Comp. 2 Esdr. 8:21.
So Ezek. 1:11.
Heb. this cried to this. So Ex. 14:20 (Heb.).
Heb. his glory is h the fulness of the whole earth.
Heb. and in his hand a live coal.
Heb. caused it to touch.
