The acceptance response of Isaiah (Isa 6:8-6:8)

“I heard

The voice of Yahweh


‘Whom shall I send?

Who will go for us?’

Then I said.

‘Here am I!

Send me!’”

Here we have the famous first person singular acceptance of Isaiah that has become a rallying cry for many Christians. Yahweh, the Lord wanted to know whom he should send. Who should go forward? His response is the great acceptance, ‘Here I am. Send me.’ This is the clear clarion call that the prophet Isaiah is ready to go.
