Isaiah - Chapter 6 | King James Version (KJV)

  • 1. In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
  • 2. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
  • 3. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, {cf15I is} the LORD of hosts: the whole earth {cf15I is} full of his glory.
  • 4. And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
  • 5. Then said I, Woe {cf15I is} me! for I am undone; because I {cf15I 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.
  • 6. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, {cf15I which} he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
  • 7. And he laid {cf15I it} upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
  • 8. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here {cf15I am} I; send me.
  • 9. And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
  • 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.
  • 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,
  • 12. And the LORD have removed men far away, and {cf15I there be} a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
  • 13. But yet in it {cf15I shall be} a tenth, and {cf15I it} shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance {cf15I is} in them, when they cast {cf15I their leaves: so} the holy seed {cf15I shall be} the substance thereof.
