God’s holiness so deeply impacted Isaiah he thought his life was over. In all likelihood, he recalled the words of God to Moses saying, “no man shall see Me and live” (Ex.33:20). Whether a vision or a view into the heavenly realm, we know Isaiah was never the same.
Speaking to the children of Israel who had spent the previous four decades in the wilderness, Moses encouraged them to welcome his startling rehearsal of their history like morning dew or a gentle rain that restores and invigorates.

The Lord on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, than the mighty waves of the sea.
