Whom Shall I Send?

1 In the year of (A) King Uzziah's death (B) I saw the LORD sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple.

2 Seraphim stood above Him, (C) each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.

3 And one called out to another and said, "(D) Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts; the (E) whole Earth is full of His glory."

4 And the foundations of the thresholds trembled at the voice of him who called out, while the (F) temple was filling with smoke.

5 Then I said, "(G) Woe is me, for I am ruined! Because I am a man of (H) unclean lips, and I live among a (I) people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the (J) King, the LORD of hosts."

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

7 He (L) touched my mouth with it and said, "Behold, this has touched your lips; and (M) your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven."

8Then I heard the (N) voice of the LORD, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then (O) I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

-Isaiah 6:1-8
