Isaiah 6:1-10 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

And one cried unto another, and said,

Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts:
the whole earth is full of his glory.

And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts. Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: and he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.

And he said, Go, and tell this people,

Hear ye indeed, but understand not;
and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
10 Make the heart of this people fat,
and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes;
lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears,
and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.

Isaiah 6:1-10 Modern English Version (MEV)

The Commission of Isaiah

In the year that King Uzziah died I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphim. Each one had six wings. With two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. One cried to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of Hosts;
    the whole earth is full of His glory.”

The posts of the door moved at the voice of him who cried, and the house was filled with smoke.

And I said: “Woe is me! For I am undone because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips. For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of Hosts.”

Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar in his hand. And he laid it on my mouth, and said, “This has touched your lips, and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin purged.”

Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”

Then I said, “Here am I. Send me.”

He said, “Go, and tell this people:

‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand;
    keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’
10 Make the heart of this people dull,
    and their ears heavy,
    and shut their eyes;
lest they see with their eyes,
    and hear with their ears,
    and understand with their heart,
and turn and be healed.”

Isaías 6:1-10 Reina Valera Contemporánea (RVC)

Visión y vocación de Isaías

En el año que murió el rey Uzías, yo vi al Señor sentado sobre un trono alto y sublime. El borde de su manto cubría el templo. Dos serafines permanecían por encima de él, y cada uno de ellos tenía seis alas; con dos se cubrían el rostro, con dos se cubrían los pies, y con dos volaban. Uno de ellos clamaba al otro y le decía:

«¡Santo, santo, santo, es el Señor de los ejércitos! ¡Toda la tierra está llena de su gloria!»

La voz del que clamaba hizo que el umbral de las puertas se estremeciera, y el templo se llenó de humo. Entonces dije yo:

«¡Ay de mí! ¡Soy hombre muerto! ¡Mis ojos han visto al Rey, el Señor de los ejércitos, aun cuando soy un hombre de labios impuros y habito en medio de un pueblo de labios también impuros!»

Entonces uno de los serafines voló hacia mí. En su mano llevaba un carbón encendido, que había tomado del altar con unas tenazas. Con ese carbón tocó mi boca, y dijo:

«Con este carbón he tocado tus labios, para remover tu culpa y perdonar tu pecado.»

Después oí la voz del Señor, que decía:

«¿A quién enviaré? ¿Quién irá por nosotros?»

Y yo respondí:

«Aquí estoy yo. Envíame a mí.»

Dijo entonces:

«Ve y dile a este pueblo: “Oigan bien, pero no entiendan; vean bien, pero no comprendan.” 10 Entorpece el corazón de este pueblo. Cierra sus oídos, y ciega sus ojos. Que no vea con sus ojos ni oiga con sus oídos, ni entienda con su corazón, para que no se convierta ni sea sanado.»

Isaiah 6:1-10 New King James Version (NKJV)

Isaiah Called to Be a Prophet

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said:

“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts;
The whole earth is full of His glory!”

And the posts of the door were shaken by the voice of him who cried out, and the house was filled with smoke.

So I said:

“Woe is me, for I am [a]undone!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King,
The Lord of hosts.”

Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a live coal which he had taken with the tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth with it, and said:

“Behold, this has touched your lips;
Your iniquity is taken away,
And your sin [b]purged.”

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:

“Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?”

Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

And He said, “Go, and tell this people:

‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand;
Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’

10 “Make the heart of this people dull,
And their ears heavy,
And shut their eyes;
Lest they see with their eyes,
And hear with their ears,
And understand with their heart,
And return and be healed.”
