The Glory of God
Isaiah 6:1-7
1 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.
2 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.
The Glory of God
Isaiah 6:1-7 (cont.)
3 And one cried to another and said:
"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; The
whole earth is full of His glory!"
4 And the posts of the door were shaken
by the voice of him who cried out, and
the house was filled with smoke.
5 So I said: "Woe is me, for I am undone!
The Glory of God
Isaiah 6:1-7 (cont.)
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."
6 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.
The Glory of God
Isaiah 6:1-7 (cont.)
7 And he touched my mouth with it, and
said: "Behold, this has touched your lips;
Your iniquity is taken away, And your sin
purged."

The Glory of God
Isaiah 59
1 Behold, the Lord's hand is not
shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His
ear heavy, That it cannot hear.
2 But your iniquities have separated you
from your God; And your sins have
hidden His face from you, So that He will
not hear.
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
3 For your hands are defiled with blood,
And your fingers with iniquity; Your lips
have spoken lies, Your tongue has
muttered perversity.
4 No one calls for justice, Nor does any
plead for truth. They trust in empty words
and speak lies; They conceive evil and
bring forth iniquity.
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
5 They hatch vipers' eggs and weave the
spider's web; He who eats of their eggs
dies, And from that which is crushed a
viper breaks out.
6 Their webs will not become garments,
Nor will they cover themselves with their
works; Their works are works of iniquity,
And the act of violence is in their hands.
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
7 Their feet run to evil, And they make
haste to shed innocent blood; Their
thoughts are thoughts of iniquity;
Wasting and destruction are in their
paths.
8 The way of peace they have not
known, And there is no justice in their
ways; They have made themselves
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
crooked paths; Whoever takes that way
shall not know peace.
9 Therefore justice is far from us, Nor
does righteousness overtake us; We
look for light, but there is darkness! For
brightness, but we walk in blackness!
10 We grope for the wall like the blind,
And we grope as if we had no eyes;
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
We stumble at noonday as at twilight;
We are as dead men in desolate
places.
11 We all growl like bears, And moan
sadly like doves; We look for justice, but
there is none; For salvation, but it is far
from us.
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
12 For our transgressions are multiplied
before You, And our sins testify against
us; For our transgressions are with us,
And as for our iniquities, we know them:
13 In transgressing and lying against the
Lord, And departing from our God,
Speaking oppression and revolt,
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
Conceiving and uttering from the heart
words of falsehood.
14 Justice is turned back, And
righteousness stands afar off; For truth is
fallen in the street, And equity cannot
enter.
15 So truth fails, And he who departs
from evil makes himself a prey.
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased
Him That there was no justice.
16 He saw that there was no man, And
wondered that there was no intercessor;
Therefore His own arm brought salvation
for Him; And His own righteousness, it
sustained Him.
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
17 For He put on righteousness as a
breastplate, And a helmet of salvation on
His head; He put on the garments of
vengeance for clothing, And was clad
with zeal as a cloak.
18 According to their deeds, accordingly
He will repay, Fury to His adversaries,
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
Recompense to His enemies; The
coastlands He will fully repay.
19 So shall they fear The name of the
Lord from the west, And His glory from
the rising of the sun; When the enemy
comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the
Lord will lift up a standard against him.
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
20 "The Redeemer will come to Zion,
And to those who turn from
transgression in Jacob," Says the Lord.
21 "As for Me," says the Lord, "this is My
covenant with them: My Spirit who is
upon you, and My words which I have
put in your mouth, shall not depart from
The Glory of God
Isaiah 59 (cont.)
your mouth, nor from the mouth of your
descendants, nor from the mouth of your
descendants' descendants," says the
Lord, "from this time and forevermore."
The Glory of God
2 Corinthians 4:6
For it is the God who commanded
light to shine out of darkness, who
has shone in our hearts to give the
light of the knowledge of the glory
of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
The Glory of God
Colossians 1:27
To them God willed to make
known what are the riches of the
glory of this mystery among the
Gentiles: which is Christ in you,
the hope of glory.
