Old Testament Story List

Isaiah

Once when Isaiah was a young man, he went to the temple to worship. There he had a vision of the Lord sitting on his throne while the angels sang, "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory."

When Isaiah thought about how great and holy God is, he felt small and unworthy. He prayed, "Woe is me, for

I am lost. I say wrong things and I live among people who speak falsely."

Isaiah's lips were touched and his sin taken away. Then the voice of the Lord asked, "Whom shall I send? Who will go for me?"

To this, Isaiah answered, "Here I am; send me."

From that time on, Isaiah spoke God's words boldly. He lived in Jerusalem and was well acquainted with the king's family and the other rulers. During his life, four different kings reigned - Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah. Isaiah tried to persuade each of them to trust in God instead of heathen princes. His advice was more respected by Hezekiah than by the others.
