Isaiah 6:2 And about hym stoode Seraphims, whereof one had sixe winges, with twayne eche couered his face, with twayne his feete, and with twayne did he flee. Isaiah 6:3 They cryed also eche one to another on this maner, Holy, holy, holy is the Lorde of hoastes: the whole earth is full of his glory. Isaiah 6:4 And the lintels of the doore checkes moued at his crying, and the house was full of smoke.

Isaiah 6:11 Then spake I, Lord, howe long? He aunswered, vntill the cities be vtterly wasted without inhabiters, and the houses without men, and tyll the lande be also vtterly desolate. Isaiah 6:12 For the Lorde shall put the men farre away, and [there shalbe] great waste in the middest of the lande.
A remnant shall be saved.
Isaiah 6:13 Yet in it shall succeede ten kinges, and it shall returne and be afterwarde wasted: [But] as the Teyle tree and the Oke in the fall of their leaues haue yet the sappe remayning in them, [euen so] the holy seede shalbe the stay therof.
