Eze 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.

had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.
Eze 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
