Isaiah’s Commission

1 In the year of the death of Uzziah the king, I saw the Lord sitting on a high and raised throne, and the hem of his robe [was] filling the temple. 2 Seraphs [were] standing above him. {Each had six wings}:a with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And the one called to the other and said, "Holy, holy, holy [is] Yahweh of hosts! The {whole earth is full of his glory}." 4 And the pivots of the thresholds shook from the sound of those who called, and the houseb was filled [with] smoke. 5 And I said, "Woe to me! For I am destroyed!c For I [am] a man {of unclean lips},d and I [am] living amonge a people {of unclean lips},f for my eyes have seen the king, Yahweh of hosts!" 6 Then one of the seraphs flew to me, and in his hand [was] a hot coal he had taken from the altar with tongs. 7 And he touched my mouth, and he said, "Look! This has touched your lips and has removed your guilt, and your sin is annulled." 8 Then I heard [the] voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "I [am] here! Send me!" 9 And he said, "Go and say to this people, 'Keep on listening and do not comprehend! And keep on looking and do not understand!' 10 Make the heart of this people insensitive, and make its ears unresponsive, and shut its eyes so that it may not look with its eyes and listen with its ears and comprehend [with] its mind and turn back, and it may be healed [for] him." 11 Then I said, "Until when, Lord?" And he said, "Until [the] cities lie wasted without inhabitant, and houses without people, and the land is ruined [and] a waste, 12 and Yahweh sends the people far away, and the abandonment is great in the midst of the land. 13 And {even if only a tenth part remain},g {again she will be destroyed}h like [a] terebinth or like [an] oak, which although felled, a tree stump [remains] in them. [The] seed of holiness [will be] her tree stump."
