1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw My Lord, sitting upon a throne high and lifted up, and, his skirts, did fill the temple, 2 Seraphim, were standing above him; six wings severally, had each one, - With twain, he covered his face And with twain, he covered his feet And with twain, he did fly. 3 And they continued crying out one to another, and said, Holy - holy - holy, is Yahweh of hosts, - the fulness of the whole earth, is his glory.
4 And the foundations of the porch, were moved at the voice of him that cried, - and the house, was filled with smoke.
5 Then said I - Woe to me! - for I am undone, Because a man of unclean lips, am, I, And in the midst of a people of unclean lips, do I dwell, - For the King. Yahweh of hosts, have mine eyes seen!
6 Then flew unto me one of the seraphim, And in his hand, a live coal, - With tongs, had he taken it from off the altar. 7 Then touched he my month, and said - Lo! this hath touched thy lips, - Thus shall be taken away, thine iniquity, And, thy sin, by propitiation be covered.
8 Then heard I the voice of My Lord, saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for us? And I said - Here am I - send me.
9 Then said be - Go and say unto this people, - Hear on but do not discern, See on but do not perceive: 10 Stupefy thou the heart of this people, And their ears, make thou heavy, And their eyes, overspread, - Lest they see with their eyes And with their ears, should hear, And their heart should discern and come back. And they be healed.
11 Then said I - How long, My Lord? And he said - Until the time that Cities be wasted through having no inhabitant And houses - through having no men, And, the ground, be laid waste unto desolation; 12 And Yahweh have far removed men, - And great! be the abandonment in the midst of the land. 13 Yet still shall there be in it a tenth, Though it again be consumed, - Like an oak and like a terebinth Which when felled, have a stock in them, A holy seed, shall be the stock thereof. Courage.
