Isaiah 6:1 In the same yeare that kinge Oziah dyed, I sawe the Lorde syttynge vpon an hygh and glorious seate, & his trayne fylled the temple. Isaiah 6:2 And aboute him stode the Seraphins, wherof euery one had sixe winges. With twayne eche couered his face, wt twayne hys fete, and with twayne dyd he flye, Isaiah 6:3 They cried also eche one to ather on thys maner: holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of Hostes. The whole worlde is full of his glory. Isaiah 6:4 Yee, þe geastes and dorechekes moued at his cryeng, and the house was full of smoke.

Isaiah 6:5 Then I sayde, O wo is me For I am lost in asmoch as I am a man of vncleane lyppes, & dwell amonge people þt hath vncleane lyppes also: for myne eyes haue sene the Kynge and Lorde of Hoostes. Isaiah 6:6 Then flewe one of the Seraphins vnto me, hauynge a hote cole in his hande, which he had taken from the aulter with the tonges, Isaiah 6:7 and touched my mouth, and sayde, lo: this hath touched thy lyppes, & thyne vnryghteousnes is taken awaye, & thy synne forgeuen. Isaiah 6:8 Also, I herd the voyce of þe Lord sayenge on this maner: Whom shall I send, and who wylbe oure messaunger? Then I sayde: here am I, sende me.
He sheweth the obstinacy of the people unto their desolation.
Isaiah 6:9 And he sayde, go, and tell this people: ye shall heare in dede, but ye shall not vnderstande: ye shall playnely se, and not perceaue. Isaiah 6:10 Harden the harte of this people, stoppe theyr eares, and shut theyr eyes, that they se not with theyr eyes, heare not with theyr eares, and vnderstand not with theyr hertes, and conuerte and be healed. Isaiah 6:11 Then spake I: Lorde, how longe? he answered: vntill the cyties be vtterly wasted without inhabitours, & the houses without men, tyll the lande be also desolate, and lye vnbuylded. Isaiah 6:12 For the Lorde shall take þe men farre awaye, so that the lande shal lye waste a longe season,
A remnant shall be saved.
Isaiah 6:13 yet in yt shall succeade .x. kinges, and the lande shall retorne and be layde waste. And as The terebint tre and oke in winter cast ther leaues, and yet haue ther sappe in them so shall the holy sead contynue in theyr substance.
