Isaiah 6:5-7 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

Then I said, [a]Woe is me: for I am undone, because I am a man of polluted lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of polluted lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, and Lord of hosts.

Then flew one of the Seraphims unto me with an hot coal in his hand, which he had taken from the [b]altar with the tongs:

And he touched my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips, and thine iniquity shall be taken away, and thy [c]sin shall be purged.


  1. Isaiah 6:5 He speaketh this for two causes: the one because he that was a mortal creature, and therefore had more need to glorify God than the Angels, did it not: and the other because the more near that man approacheth to God, the more doth he know his own sin and corruption.
  2. Isaiah 6:6 Of the burnt offerings, where the fire never went out.
  3. Isaiah 6:7 This declareth that man cannot render due obedience to God, till he have purged us.

Isaiah 6:5-7 New International Version (NIV)

“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”

Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.
