In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

6:1 the Lord. Adonai is the divine name of God as seen in Isaiah’s vision (Isaiah 6:8,11). However, the Seraphim call Him Jehovah Sabaoth meaning “LORD of hosts” (Isaiah 6:3).

6:2 seraphims. This is the only reference in the Bible to these angelic beings, perhaps similar in rank to the cherubim, yet different in function. The name, seraphim, literally means “burners.” It is barely possible that these are the same as the cherubim.

6:3 Holy, holy, holy. The threefold ascription of holiness to the One on the throne suggests His tri-unity.
