Ezekiel 1


1:1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth
 [month], in the fifth [day] of the month, as I [was] among the
 captives by the river of Kebar, [that] the heavens were opened,
 and I saw visions of God.
1:2 In the fifth [day] of the month, which [was] the fifth year
 of king Jehoiachin's captivity,
1:3 The word of the LORD came expressly to Ezekiel the priest,
 the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river
 Kebar; and the hand of the LORD was there upon him.
1:4 And I looked, and behold, a whirlwind came out of the north,
 a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness
 [was] about it, and from the midst of it as the color of amber,
 from the midst of the fire.
1:5 Also from the midst of it [came] the likeness of four living
 creatures. And this [was] their appearance; they had the
 likeness of a man.
1:6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.
1:7 And their feet [were] straight feet; and the sole of their
 feet [was] like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled
 like the color of burnished brass.
1:8 And [they had] the hands of a man under their wings on their
 four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.
1:9 Their wings [were] joined one to another; they turned not
 when they went; they went every one straight forward.
1:10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face
 of a man and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they
 four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had
 the face of an eagle.
1:11 Thus [were] their faces: and their wings [were] stretched
 upward; two [wings] of every one [were] joined one to another,
 and two covered their bodies.
1:12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the
 spirit was to go, they went; [and] they turned not when they
 went.
1:13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their
 appearance [was] like burning coals of fire, [and] like the
 appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living
 creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went
 forth lightning.
1:14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance
 of a flash of lightning.
1:15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon
 the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.
1:16 The appearance of the wheels and their work [was] like the
 color of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their
 appearance and their work [was] as it were a wheel in the
 middle of a wheel.
1:17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: [and] they
 returned not when they went.
1:18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were
 dreadful; and their rings [were] full of eyes around them four.
1:19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by
 them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the
 earth, the wheels were lifted up.
1:20 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither [was
 their] spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against
 them: for the spirit of the living creature [was] in the
 wheels.
1:21 When those went, [these] went; and when those stood,
 [these] stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth,
 the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of
 the living creature [was] in the wheels.
1:22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the
 living creature [was] as the color of the terrible crystal,
 stretched forth over their heads above.
1:23 And under the firmament [were] their wings straight, the
 one towards the other: every one had two, which covered on this
 side, and every one had two, which covered on that side, their
 bodies.
1:24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like
 the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the
 voice of speech, as the noise of a host: when they stood, they
 let down their wings.
1:25 And there was a voice from the firmament that [was] over
 their heads, when they stood, [and] had let down their wings.
1:26 And above the firmament that [was] over their heads [was]
 the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire
 stone: and upon the likeness of the throne [was] the likeness
 as the appearance of a man above upon it.
1:27 And I saw as the color of amber, as the appearance of fire
 around within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward,
 and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it
 were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness on all
 sides.
1:28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the
 day of rain, so [was] the appearance of the brightness around.
 This [was] the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the
 LORD. And when I saw [it], I fell upon my face, and I heard a
 voice of one speaking.
