Isaiah's Commission from the Lord

8 And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for 1us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me." 9 And he said, "Go, and say to this people: 2"'Keep on hearing,a but do not understand; keep on seeing,b but do not perceive.' 10 3Make the heart of this people 4dull,c and their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; 5lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed." 11 Then I said, 6"How long, O Lord?" And he said: "Until 7cities lie waste without inhabitant, and houses without people, and the land is a desolate waste, 12 and the LORD removes people far away, and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land. 13 8And though a tenth remain in it, it will be burnedd again, like a terebinth or an oak, whose stump 9remains when it is felled." 10The holy seede is its stump.
