Book of Mormon 2 Nephi Chapter 16
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13
Isaiah sees the Lord-Isaiah's sins are forgiven-He is called to prophesy-He prophesies of the rejection by the Jews of Christ's teachings-A remnant shall return-Compare Isaiah 6. [Between 559 and 545 B.C. ]
1 aIn the byear that king Uzziah died, I csaw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
2 Above it stood the aseraphim; each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
3 And one cried unto another, and said: Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of Hosts; the whole earth is full of his aglory.
4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 Then said I: Wo is unto 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 aseen the King, the Lord of Hosts.
6 Then flew one of the seraphim unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar;
7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said: Lo, this has touched thy lips; and thine ainiquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: aWhom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said: Here am I; send me.
9 And he said: Go and tell this people-Hear ye indeed, but they understood not; and see ye indeed, but they perceived 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 ahear with their ears, and understand with their bheart, and be converted and be healed.
11 Then said I: Lord, how long? And he said: Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate;
12 And the Lord have aremoved men far away, for there shall be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
13 But yet there shall be a tenth, and they shall return, and shall be eaten, as a teil-tree, and as an oak whose substance is in them when they cast their leaves; so the aholy seed shall be the substance thereof.
