TWO WTF moments in Bible Study:Heavenly Tongs? Really?

 1In 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.
 2Above 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.
 3And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
 4And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
 5Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
 6Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
 7And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.: Isaiah 6: 1-6

So...there are heavenly tongs in heaven? Angels can be hurt by fire from the altar? Tongs?????

The second:
Who is blind but my servant, and deaf like the messenger I send? Who is blind like the one committed to me, blind like the servant of the LORD? Isaiah 42: 19

So...who is the Servant of God blind to? who is the Servant of God deaf to?
The tempting call of seducing religious hypocrites? The siren song of the wealth of the world?
Am thinking.... what was Jesus blind to and deaf to? What should I be blind to and deaf to?
