6Isaiah

1 In the year that King Uzziah died I saw Yahweh sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and his train filled the temple.

The call of ISAIAH. Is.6.1-13
2 Above him stood the seraphim; each had six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

 
3 And one called to another and said:
"Holy, holy, holy is Yahweh of hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory."

 
4 And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called, and the house was filled with smoke.

 
5 And I said: "Woe is me! For I am lost; for 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,
Yahweh of hosts!"

 
6 Then flew one of the seraphim to me, having in his hand a burning coal which he had taken with tongs from the altar.

 
7 And he touched my mouth, and said: "Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin forgiven."

 
8 And I heard the voice of Yahweh saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."

 
9 And he said, "Go, and say to this people:
'Hear and hear, but do not understand;
see and see, but do not perceive.'

 
10 Make the heart of this people fat,
and their ears heavy,
and shut their eyes;
lest they see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their hearts,
and turn and be healed."

 
11 Then I said, "How long, O Yahweh?"
And he said:
"Until cities lie waste without inhabitant,
and houses without men,
and the land is utterly desolate,

 
12 and Yahweh removes men far away,
and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.
 
13 And though a tenth remain in it,
it will be burned again,
like a terebinth or an oak,
whose stump remains standing when it is felled."
The holy seed is its stump.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background. Any mismatches, truncated verses, other mistakes ?
