6 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. 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for qus? rThen said I, †sHere am I; send me. 9 And he said, Go, and tell this people,
And see ye †indeed, but perceive not.
10 uMake the heart of this people fat,
And make their ears heavy, and vshut their eyes;
wLest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears,
And understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
11 Then said I, xLord, how long? And he answered,
Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant,
And the houses without man,
And the land be †utterly desolate,
12 And ythe Lord have removed men far away,
And there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
