Vision of God’s Glory Departing from the Temple1 Then I looked, and behold, in the ▼
▼ Or firmament, b expanse that was over the heads of the cherubim something like a c sapphire stone, in appearance resembling a d throne, appeared above them. 2 And He spoke to the man clothed in linen and said, “Enter between the e whirling wheels under the ▼
▼ So with Gr; Heb cherubcherubim and fill your hands with g coals of fire from between the cherubim and scatter them over the city.” And he entered in my sight. 3 Now the cherubim were standing on the right side of the ▼
▼ Lit house, and so throughout the chtemple when the man entered, and the cloud filled the i inner court. 4 Then the j glory of the Lord went up from the cherub to the threshold of the temple, and the k temple was filled with the cloud and the court was filled with the l brightness of the glory of the Lord. 5 Moreover, the sound of the wings of the cherubim was heard as far as the outer court, like the m voice of ▼
▼ Heb El ShaddaiGod Almighty when He speaks. 6 It came about when He commanded the man clothed in linen, saying, “Take fire from between the whirling wheels, from between the cherubim,” he entered and stood beside a wheel. 7 Then the cherub stretched out his hand from between the cherubim to the fire which was between the cherubim, took some and put it into the hands of the one clothed in linen, who took it and went out. 8 The cherubim appeared to have the form of a man’s hand under their wings. 9 Then I looked, and behold o four wheels beside the cherubim, one wheel beside each cherub; and the appearance of the wheels was like the gleam of a ▼
▼ Perhaps, beryl, q Tarshish stone. 10 As for their appearance, all four of them had the same likeness, as if one wheel were within another wheel. 11 When they moved, they went r in any of their four ▼
▼ Lit sidesdirections without turning as they went; but they followed in the direction which ▼
▼ Lit the head turnedthey faced, without turning as they went. 12 Their u whole body, their backs, their hands, their wings and the v wheels were full of eyes all around, the wheels belonging to all four of them. 13 The wheels were called in my hearing, the whirling wheels. 14 And w each one had four faces. The first face was the face of a cherub, the second face was the face of a man, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle. 15 Then the cherubim rose up. They are the x living beings that I saw by the river Chebar. 16 Now when the cherubim moved, the wheels would go beside them; also when the cherubim lifted up their wings to rise from the ground, the wheels would not turn from beside them. 17 When ▼ the cherubim z stood still, ▼ the wheels would stand still; and when they rose up, ▼ the wheels would rise with them, for the spirit of the living beings was in them. 18 Then the glory of the Lord departed from the threshold of the temple and stood ac over the cherubim. 19 When ad the cherubim departed, they lifted their wings and rose up from the earth in my sight with the wheels beside them; and they stood still at the entrance of the east gate of the Lord’s house, and the glory of the God of Israel ▼
▼ Lit over them from abovehovered over them. 20 These are the af living beings that I saw beneath the God of Israel by ag the river Chebar; so I knew that they were cherubim. 21 ah Each one had four faces and each one four wings, and beneath their wings was the form of human hands. 22 As for the likeness of their faces, they were the same faces whose appearance I had seen by the river Chebar. Each one went straight ahead.
