Isaiah, in a vision of the LORD in his glory,
Isaiah 6:1 In the yeere that King Uzziah died, I saw also the Lord sitting vpon a throne, high and lifted vp, and his traine filled the Temple. Isaiah 6:2 Aboue it stood the Seraphims: each one [had] sixe wings, with twaine he couered his face, and with twaine hee couered his feete, and with twaine hee did flie. Isaiah 6:3 And one cryed vnto another, and sayd; Holy, holy, holy, [is] the LORD of hostes, the whole earth [is] full of his glory. Isaiah 6:4 And the posts of the doore moued at the voyce of him that cryed, and the house was filled with smoke.
being terrified, is confirmed for his message.
Isaiah 6:5 Then sayd I; woe [is] me; for I am vndone, because I [am] a man of vncleane lippes, and I dwell in the midst of a people of vncleane lippes: for mine eyes haue seene the king, the LORD of hostes. Isaiah 6:6 Then flew one of the Seraphims vnto mee, hauing a liue-cole in his hand, [which] hee had taken with the tongs from off the altar. Isaiah 6:7 And he laide [it] vpon my mouth, and sayd, Loe, this hath touched thy lippes, and thine iniquitie is taken away, and thy sinne purged. Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voyce of the Lord, saying; Whom shall I send, and who will goe for vs? Then I saide; Heere am I, send me.
He sheweth the obstinacy of the people unto their desolation.
Isaiah 6:9 And he sayd, Goe and tell this people; Heare yee indeede, but vnderstand not: and see yee indeed, but perceiue not. Isaiah 6:10 Make the heart of this people fat, and make their eares heauy, and shut their eyes: lest they see with their eyes, and heare with their eares, and vnderstand with their heart, and conuert and be healed. Isaiah 6:11 Then sayd I; Lord, how long? And hee answered, Untill the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be vtterly desolate, Isaiah 6:12 And the LORD haue remoued men farre away, and [there be] a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
A remnant shall be saved.
Isaiah 6:13 But yet in it [shalbe] a tenth, and it shall returne, and shall be eaten: as a Teyle tree, and as an Oke whose substance [is] in them, when they cast [their leaues: so] the holy seede [shall be] the substance thereof.
