Isaiah, in a vision of the LORD in his glory,
Isaiah 6:1 In the same yeare þe kynge Oziah dyed, I sawe the Lorde sytting vpon an high & gloryous seate, and hys trayne fylled the palace. Isaiah 6:2 From aboue flakred the Seraphins, whereof euery one had sixe wynges. With twayne eche couered his face, with twayne his fete, & with twayne dyd he flye. Isaiah 6:3 They cryed also eche one to other on this maner: holy holy holy, is the Lord of hostes. The whole world is ful of his glory. Isaiah 6:4 Yea the gestes and dorecheckes moued at their crieng, & the house was ful of smoke.
being terrified, is confirmed for his message.
Isaiah 6:5 Then I sayde: O wo is me. For I was astonished: þt I (which am a man of vncleane lippes and dwell amonge people that hath vncleane lyppes also) shulde se the kynge and þe Lorde of hostes wyth myne eyes. Isaiah 6:6 Then flue one of the Seraphins vnto me, hauynge a hote cole in hys hande, whiche he had taken from the aulter wyth the tounges, Isaiah 6:7 and touched my mouthe, and sayde: lo, thys hath touched my mouth, and thyne vnryghtuousnes is taken awaye, and thy synne forgeuen. Isaiah 6:8 After thys I heard the voyce of the Lord takyng aduysement on thys maner: Whome shall I sende, & who wylbe oure messenger? Then I sayde: here am I, sende me.
He sheweth the obstinacy of the people unto their desolation.
Isaiah 6:9 And so he sayde: go, and tell thys people: ye shall heare in dede, but ye shall not vnderstande, ye shall playnelye se, & not perceyue. Isaiah 6:10 Harden þe hart of thys people, stoppe theyr eares, and shutte theyr eyes, that they se not with theyr eyes, heare not wyth theyr eares, and vnderstande not wyth theyr hertes, and conuerte and be healed. Isaiah 6:11 Then spake I: Lorde, howe longe? he aunswered: vntyll the cytyes be vtterlye without inhabytours, and the houses wythoute men, tyll the lande be also desolate, & lye vnbuylded. Isaiah 6:12 For the Lorde shall take the men farre awaye, so that the lande shall lye waste.
A remnant shall be saved.
Isaiah 6:13 Neuertheles, the tenthe part shall remayne there in, for it shall conuerte and be frutefull. And lykewyse as the Terebyntes and Oketrees brynge forthe theyr frutes, so shall the holye sede haue frute.
