Understanding Isaiah’s calling

The Citizen's picture

I recently re-read Isaiah’s call in Isaiah 6. Usually we stop at verse 8, where, when God asks, “Whom shall I send?” Isaiah volunteers and says, “Here am I. Send me.” This time, however, I read further. I read to what Isaiah was called.

Isaiah 6:9: And he said, “Go and say to this people: ‘Keep listening, but do not comprehend; keep looking, but do not understand.’

Isaiah 6:10: Make the mind of this people dull, and stop their ears, and shut their eyes, so that they may not look with their eyes, and listen with their ears, and comprehend with their minds, and turn and be healed.” Read More»
