Isaiah 6:6-8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Then one of the seraphim flew to me, holding an ember which he had taken with tongs from the altar.

He touched my mouth with it. “See,” he said, “now that this has touched your lips,[a] your wickedness is removed, your sin purged.”

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” “Here I am,” I said; “send me!”

Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
