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.
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.
And one cryed vnto another, and sayd;
Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hostes, the whole earth is full of his glory.
And the posts of the doore moued at the voyce of him that cryed, and the house was filled with smoke.
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.
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.
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.
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.
And he sayd, Goe and tell this people;
Heare yee indeede, but vnderstand not: and see yee indeed, but perceiue not.
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.
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,
And the Lord haue remoued men farre away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
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.
