THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET
Isaiah 6 ©
The prophet beholds in a vision the glory of the true God, v. 1. At which he is greatly affrighted, 5. He is confirmed and strengthened in his office and calling, 6. His willingness and readiness to serve unto God, 8. He is sent to the Jews to declare unto them their final ruin and destruction, because of their obstinacy and hardness of heart, 9. Yet so, that still an holy seed would be left among them, 13.
IN thea year that king 1Uzziah died 2I saw also 3the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and 4his train filled the temple.
Above it 5stood 6the seraphims: 7each one had sixb wings; with twainc he 8covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he 9did fly.
And 10one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy,dis the LORD of hosts: 11the whole earth is full of his glory.
12And the posts of the door moved at the voice 13of him that cried, and 14the house 15was filled with smoke.
¶ 16Then said I, Woe is me! for 17I am undone; 18because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people 19of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
Then 20flew one of the seraphims unto me, 21having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off 22the altar:
And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, 23this hathe touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin 24purged.
Also I heard 25the voice of the Lord, saying, 26Whom shall I send, and who will go 27for us? Then said I, 28Here am I; send me.
¶And he said, Go, and tell 29this people, Hearf ye indeed, 30but understand not; and see ye indeed, but 31perceive not.
32Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and 33shut their eyes; lestg they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, 34and 35be 36healed.
Then said I, Lord, 37how long? And he answered, Until 38the cities be 39wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly 40desolate,
And the LORD have removed 41men 42far away, and there be a great 43forsaking 44in the midst of the land.
¶But yet in it shall be 45a tenth, and 46it shall return, and shall be eaten: 47as a 48teil tree, and as an 49oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so 50the holy seed shall be the substance 51thereof.
