2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings : with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 2 Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying.

4 And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the temple was filling with smoke. 4 At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
5 Then I said, "Woe is me, for I am ruined ! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips ; For my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts." 5 "Woe to me!"

6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. 6 Then one of the seraphs flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar.

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!" 8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"
9 He said, "Go, and tell this people : 'Keep on listening, but do not perceive ; Keep on looking, but do not understand.' 9 He said, "Go and tell this people: " 'Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving.'
10 "Render the hearts of this people insensitive, Their ears dull, And their eyes dim, Otherwise they might see with their eyes, Hear with their ears, Understand with their hearts, And return and be healed." 10 Make the heart of this people calloused; make their ears dull and close their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed."
11 Then I said, "Lord, how long ?" And He answered, "Until cities are devastated and without inhabitant, Houses are without people And the land is utterly desolate, 11 Then I said, "For how long, O Lord?"

13 "Yet there will be a tenth portion in it, And it will again be subject to burning, Like a terebinth or an oak Whose stump remains when it is felled. The holy seed is its stump." 13 And though a tenth remains in the land, it will again be laid waste. But as the terebinth and oak leave stumps when they are cut down, so the holy seed will be the stump in the land."
