Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 6:6

_ _ unto me — The seraph had been in the temple, Isaiah outside of it.

_ _ live coal — literally, “a hot stone,” used, as in some countries in our days, to roast meat with, for example, the meat of the sacrifices. Fire was a symbol of purification, as it takes the dross out of metals (Malachi 3:2, Malachi 3:3).

_ _ the altar — of burnt offering, in the court of the priests before the temple. The fire on it was at first kindled by God (Leviticus 9:24), and was kept continually burning.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 6:5-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 6:6

Flew — By God's command. A coal — Both a token and an instrument of purification. The altar — Of burnt — offering.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 6:6

Then one of the seraphims flew to me, having a live coal in his hand, [which] he had taken with the tongs from off the (m) altar:

(m) Of the burnt offerings where the fire never went out.
