1In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the edges of his robe filled the temple.
2Above him stood the seraphim. Each one had six wings. With two he covered his face. With two he covered his feet. With two he flew.
3One called to another and said, “Holy, holy, holy, is Yahweh of Armies! The whole earth is full of his glory!”
6Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having a live coal in his hand that he had taken from the altar with tongs.
7He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips, and your iniquity is taken away and your sin forgiven.”
9He said, “Go, and tell this people, ‘Hear, yes, hear, but do not understand; and see, yes, see, but do not perceive.’
10“Make the heart of this people fat. Make their ears heavy and shut their eyes, lest they see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and repent and be healed.”
11Then I said, “Lord, how long?” He answered, “Until cities are waste without inhabitant, and houses without man, and the land becomes utterly waste,
12and Yahweh has removed people far away, and the abandoned places are many in the midst of the land.
13And if a tenth remains in it, it will be burned again, like a terebinth or like an oak whose stump remains when it is cut down. The holy seed is its stump.”
