    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:2

    Y encima de l estaban serafines; cada uno tenía seis alas; con dos cubrían sus rostros, y con dos cubrían sus pies, y con dos volaban.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Isaiah 6:2

    Verse 2. Above it stood the seraphim] ypr seraphim, from Pr seraph, to
    burn. He saw says Kimchi, the angels as flames of fire, that the depravity of that generation might be exhibited, which was worthy of being totally burnt up.

    He covered his feet "He covereth his feet"] By the feet the Hebrews mean all the lower parts of the body. But the people of the East generally wearing long robes, reaching to the ground, and covering the lower parts of the body down to the feet, it may hence have been thought want of respect and decency to appear in public and on solemn occasions with even the feet themselves uncovered. Kempfer, speaking of the king of Persia giving audience, says, Rex in medio supremi atrii cruribus more patrio inflexis sedebat: corpus tunica investiebat flava, ad suras cum staret protensa; discumbentis vero pedes discalceatos pro urbanitate patria operiens. - Amoen. Exot. p. 227. "The king sat on the floor cross-legged, as is the custom of the country. He was covered with a yellow garment, which reached down to the feet when standing, but covered the feet for decency when sitting with his slippers off." Sir John Chardin's MS. note on this place of Isaiah is as follows: Grande marque de respect en orient de se cacher les pieds, quand on est assis, et de baisser le visage. Quand le souvrain se monstre en Chine et a Japon, chacun se jette le visage contre terre, et il n'est pas permis de regarder le roi; "It is a great mark of respect in the East to cover the feet, and to bow down the head in the presence of the king."


    Matthew Henry Commentary
    The vision which Isaiah beheld in the
    temple. (Is. 6:1-8) The Lor declares the blindness to come upon the Jewish nation, and the destruction which would follow. (Is. 6:9-13)

    Is. 6:1-8 In this figurative vision, the temple is thrown open to view even to the most holy place. The prophet, standing outside the temple sees the Divine Presence seated on the mercy-seat, raised over the ar of the covenant, between the cherubim and seraphim, and the Divin glory filled the whole temple. See God upon his throne. This vision is explained, John 12:41, that Isaiah now saw Christ's glory, and spake of Him, which is a full proof that our Saviour is God. In Christ Jesus God is seated on a throne of grace; and through him the way into the holiest is laid open. See God's temple, his church on earth, fille with his glory. His train, the skirts of his robes, filled the temple the whole world, for it is all God's temple. And yet he dwells in ever contrite heart. See the blessed attendants by whom his government is served. Above the throne stood the holy angels, called seraphim, whic means "burners;" they burn in love to God, and zeal for his glor against sin. The seraphim showing their faces veiled, declares tha they are ready to yield obedience to all God's commands, though they d not understand the secret reasons of his counsels, government, or promises. All vain-glory, ambition, ignorance, and pride, would be don away by one view of Christ in his glory. This awful vision of the Divine Majesty overwhelmed the prophet with a sense of his ow vileness. We are undone if there is not a Mediator between us and thi holy God. A glimpse of heavenly glory is enough to convince us that all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags. Nor is there a man that woul dare to speak to the Lord, if he saw the justice, holiness, and majest of God, without discerning his glorious mercy and grace in Jesu Christ. The live coal may denote the assurance given to the prophet, or pardon, and acceptance in his work, through the atonement of Christ Nothing is powerful to cleanse and comfort the soul, but what is take from Christ's satisfaction and intercession. The taking away sin is necessary to our speaking with confidence and comfort, either to God in prayer, or from God in preaching; and those shall have their sin take away who complain of it as a burden, and see themselves in danger of being undone by it. It is great comfort to those whom God sends, tha they go for God, and may therefore speak in his name, assured that he will bear them out.

    Is. 6:9-13 God sends Isaiah to foretell the ruin of his people. Man hear the sound of God's word, but do not feel the power of it. God sometimes, in righteous judgment, gives men up to blindness of mind because they will not receive the truth in the love of it. But n humble inquirer after Christ, need to fear this awful doom, which is spiritual judgment on those who will still hold fast their sins. Le every one pray for the enlightening of the Holy Spirit, that he ma perceive how precious are the Divine mercies, by which alone we ar secured against this dreadful danger. Yet the Lord would preserve remnant, like the tenth, holy to him. And blessed be God, he stil preserves his church; however professors or visible churches may be lopped off as unfruitful, the holy seed will shoot forth, from whom all the numerous branches of righteousness shall arise __________________________________________________________________
