2 Above 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.

2 Seraphim stood above Him, (C)each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

3 One called to another, and said, "Holy, holy, holy, is Yahweh of Armies! The whole earth is full of his glory!"

3 And one called out to another and said,(D)Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts,The (a)(E)whole earth is full of His glory.”

5 Then I said,(G)Woe is me, for I am ruined!Because I am a man of (H)unclean lips,And I live among a (I)people of unclean lips;For my eyes have seen the (J)King, the Lord of hosts.”

5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.

5 Then I said:Woe is me(J) for I am ruined(c)because I am a man of unclean lipsand live among a people of unclean lips,(K)and because my eyes have seen the King,the Lord of Hosts.

5 "How terrible it will be for me!" I cried, "because I am ruined! I'm a man with unclean lips, and I live among a people with unclean lips! And my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of the Heavenly Armies!"

Isaiah's Commission From The Lord

8 I heard the Lord's voice, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here I am. Send me!"

8 Then I heard the (N)voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then (O)I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying:Who should I send?Who will go for Us?I said:Here I am. Send me.

8 Then I heard the voice of the LORD as he was asking, "Whom will I send? Who will go for us?" "Here I am!" I replied. "Send me."

9 He said, "Go, and tell this people, 'You hear indeed, but don't understand; and you see indeed, but don't perceive.'

9 He said, “Go, and tell this people:‘Keep on (P)listening, but do not perceive;Keep on looking, but do not understand.’

9 And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.

9 And He replied:Go! Say to these people:Keep listening, but do not understand;(O)keep looking, but do not perceive.

9 "Go!" he responded. "Tell this people: ""Keep on hearing, but do not understand; keep on seeing, 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 turn again, and be healed."

10 (Q)Render the hearts of this people (e)(R)insensitive,Their ears (f)dull,And their eyes (g)dim,(S)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 fat, and 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 convert, and be healed.

10 Dull the minds(d) of these people;deafen their ears and blind their eyes;otherwise they might see with their eyesand hear with their ears,understand with their minds,turn back, and be healed.(P)

10 Dull the mind of this people, deafen their ears, and blind their eyes. By doing so, they won't see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their minds, turn back, and be healed."

11 Then I said, "Lord, how long?" He answered, "Until cities are waste without inhabitant, and houses without man, and the land becomes utterly waste,

11 Then I said, “Lord, (T)how long?” And He answered,“Until (U)cities are devastated and without inhabitant,Houses are without peopleAnd the land is utterly desolate,

11 Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,

11 Then I said, “Until when, Lord?”(Q) And He replied:Until cities lie in ruins without inhabitants,(R)houses are without people,the land is ruined and desolate,

11 Then I asked, "For how long, LORD?" He replied: "Until cities lie waste, without inhabitants, and houses without people; and the land becomes utterly desolate.

12 And Yahweh has removed men far away, and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.

12 “The Lord has (V)removed men far away,And the (h)(W)forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.

12 And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.

12 and the Lord drives the people far away,leaving great emptiness in the land.

12 Until the LORD removes people far away, and there are many empty places in the middle of the land.

13 If there is a tenth left in it, that also will in turn be consumed: as a terebinth, and as an oak, whose stock remains when they are felled; so the holy seed is its stock."

13 “Yet there will be a tenth portion in it,And it will again be subject to burning,Like a terebinth or an (X)oakWhose stump remains when it is felled.The (Y)holy seed is its stump.”

13 But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.

13 Though a tenth will remain in the land,it will be burned again.Like the terebinth or the oakthat leaves a stump when felled,the holy seed(S) is the stump.(T)

13 Even though a tenth of its people remain in it, it will once again be burned, like a terebinth or an oak tree, the stump of which, though the tree has been felled, still contains holy seed."
