WATCH YOUR TONGUE (II)

Isaiah 6:1-8
1 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple.
2 Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying.

This is sinful, evil and speaks proud words, blasphemy and lies. He exclaimed, Woe is me! There is something exceedingly affecting in this complaint. I am a man of unclean lips; I cannot say, holy, holy, holy, which the seraphs exclaim. They are holy; I am not: Only the pure in heart shall see God; and they only can live in His
