The first five chapters of Isaiah depict the moral decay of both Judah and Israel. In 740 BCE, the year that King Uzziah of Judah died, Isaiah had a vision of the LORD. Isaiah experienced a powerful sense of forgiveness, with his sin being atoned for. Then comes the call to be sent by the LORD to the people, a message that Isaiah is told will be ignored, and that Judah will be removed from the land. Yet, a promise is added, that a holy seed will remain.
