The Glory of the Lord
4As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness around it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in
the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming metal.
b 5And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness, 6but each had four
faces, and each of them had four wings. 7Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf’s foot. And they
sparkled like burnished bronze. 8Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus: 9their
wings touched one another.
Each one of them went straight forward, without turning as they went. 10As for the likeness of their faces, each had a human face. The four had the
face of a lion on the right side, the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four had the face of an eagle. 11Such were their faces. And
their wings were spread out above. Each creature had two wings, each of which touched the wing of another, while two covered their bodies. 12And each
went straight forward. Wherever the spiritc would go, they went, without turning as they went. 13As for the likeness of the living creatures, their
appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches moving to and fro among the living creatures. And the fire was bright, and
out of the fire went forth lightning. 14And the living creatures darted to and fro, like the appearance of a flash of lightning.
15Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them.d 16As for the
appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of beryl. And the four had the same likeness, their appearance
and construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel. 17When they went, they went in any of their four directionse without turning as they went.
18And their rims were tall and awesome, and the rims of all four were full of eyes all around. 19And when the living creatures went, the wheels went
beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose. 20Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, and the wheels rose
along with them, for the spirit of the living creaturesf was in the wheels. 21When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when
those rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
22Over the heads of the living creatures there was the likeness of an expanse, shining like awe-inspiring crystal, spread out above their heads. 23And
under the expanse their wings were stretched out straight, one toward another. And each creature had two wings covering its body. 24And when they
went, I heard the sound of their wings like the sound of many waters, like the sound of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of an army.
When they stood still, they let down their wings. 25And there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads. When they stood still, they let
down their wings.
26And above the expanse over their heads there was the likeness of a throne, in appearance like sapphire;g and seated above the likeness of a throne
was a likeness with a human appearance. 27And upward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were gleaming metal, like the appearance of
fire enclosed all around. And downward from what had the appearance of his waist I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness
around him.h 28Like the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud on the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around.
Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of one speaking.
