Isaiah 6:1–8

Isaiah’s Commission

6 In the year that King Uzziahg died,h I saw the Lord,i high and exalted,j seated on a throne;k and the train of his robel filled the temple. Above him were seraphim,m each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet,n and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:

“Holy, holyo, holy is the Lord Almighty;p

the whole earthq is full of his glory.”r

At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.s

“Woet to me!” I cried. “I am ruined!u For I am a man of unclean lips,v and I live among a people of unclean lips,w and my eyes have seenx the King,y the Lord Almighty.”z

Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coala in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips;b your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.c

Then I heard the voiced of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send?e And who will go for us?f

And I said, “Here am I.g Send me!”
