1 H7970 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth H8141 year, H7243 in the fourth H2568 month, in the fifth H2320 day of the month, H8432 as I was among H1473 the captives H5104 by the river H3529 Chebar, H8064 that the heavens H6605 were opened, H7200 and I saw H4759 visions H430 of God.
2 H2568 In the fifth H2320 day of the month, H2549 which was the fifth H8141 year H4428 of king H3112 Jehoiachin's H1546 captivity,
3 H1697 the word H3068 of Jehovah H3168 came expressly unto Ezekiel H3548 the priest, H1121 the son H941 of Buzi, H776 in the land H3778 of the Chaldeans H5104 by the river H3529 Chebar; H3027 and the hand H3068 of Jehovah was there upon him.
4 H7200 And I looked, H7307 and, behold, a stormy wind H935 came H6828 out of the north, H1419 a great H6051 cloud, H784 with a fire H3947 infolding H5051 itself, and a brightness H5439 round about H8432 it, and out of the midst H5869 thereof as it were glowing H2830 metal, H8432 out of the midst H784 of the fire.
5 H8432 And out of the midst H1823 thereof came the likeness H702 of four H2416 living creatures. H4758 And this was their appearance: H2007 they H1823 had the likeness H120 of a man.
6 H259 And every one H702 had four H6440 faces, H259 and every one H702 of them had four H3671 wings.
7 H7272 And their feet H3477 were straight H7272 feet; H3709 and the sole H7272 of their feet H3709 was like the sole H5695 of a calf's H7272 foot; H5340 and they sparkled H5869 like H7044 burnished H5178 brass.
8 H3027 And they had the hands H120 of a man H3671 under their wings H702 on their four H7253 sides; H702 and they four H6440 had their faces H3671 and their wings thus:
9 H3671 their wings H2266 were joined H802 one H269 to another; H5437 they turned H3212 not when they went; H3212 they went H376 every one H5676 straight H6440 forward.
10 H1823 As for the likeness H6440 of their faces, H6440 they had the face H120 of a man; H702 and they four H6440 had the face H738 of a lion H3225 on the right side; H702 and they four H6440 had the face H7794 of an ox H8040 on the left side; H702 they four H6440 had also the face H5404 of an eagle.
11 H6440 And their faces H3671 and their wings H6504 were separate H4605 above; H8147 two H376 wings of every one H2266 were joined H376 one H376 to another, H8147 and two H3680 covered H1472 their bodies.
12 H3212 And they went H376 every one H5676 straight H6440 forward: H7307 whither the spirit H3212 was to go, H3212 they went; H5437 they turned H3212 not when they went.
13 H1823 As for the likeness H2416 of the living creatures, H4758 their appearance H1197 was like burning H1513 coals H784 of fire, H4758 like the appearance H3940 of torches: H1980 the fire went up and down H2416 among the living creatures; H784 and the fire H5051 was bright, H784 and out of the fire H3318 went forth H1300 lightning.
14 H2416 And the living creatures H7519 ran H7725 and returned H4758 as the appearance H965 of a flash of lightning.
15 H7200 Now as I beheld H2416 the living creatures, H259 behold, one H212 wheel H776 upon the earth H681 beside H2416 the living creatures, H702 for each of the four H6440 faces thereof.
16 H4758 The appearance H212 of the wheels H4639 and their work H5869 was like H8658 unto a beryl: H702 and they four H259 had one H1823 likeness; H4758 and their appearance H4639 and their work H212 was as it were a wheel H8432 within H212 a wheel.
17 H3212 When they went, H3212 they went H702 in their four H7253 directions: H5437 they turned H3212 not when they went.
18 H1354 As for their rims, H1363 they were high H3374 and dreadful; H702 and they four H1354 had their rims H4392 full H5869 of eyes H5439 round about.
19 H2416 And when the living creatures H3212 went, H212 the wheels H3212 went H681 beside them; H2416 and when the living creatures H5375 were lifted up H776 from the earth, H212 the wheels H5375 were lifted up.
20 H7307 Whithersoever the spirit H3212 was to go, H3212 they went; H7307 thither was the spirit H3212 to go: H212 and the wheels H5375 were lifted up H5980 beside H7307 them; for the spirit H2416 of the living creature H212 was in the wheels.
21 H3212 When those went, H3212 these went; H5975 and when those stood, H5975 these stood; H5375 and when those were lifted up H776 from the earth, H212 the wheels H5375 were lifted up H5980 beside H7307 them: for the spirit H2416 of the living creature H212 was in the wheels.
22 H7218 And over the head H2416 of the living creature H1823 there was the likeness H7549 of a firmament, H5869 like H3372 the terrible H7140 crystal H5186 to look upon, stretched forth H7218 over their heads H4605 above.
23 H7549 And under the firmament H3671 were their wings H3477 straight, H802 the one H269 toward the other: H376 every one H8147 had two H3680 which covered H2007 on this side, H376 and every one H8147 had two H3680 which covered H2007 on that side, H1472 their bodies.
24 H3212 And when they went, H8085 I heard H6963 the noise H3671 of their wings H6963 like the noise H7227 of great H4325 waters, H6963 like the voice H7706 of the Almighty, H6963 a noise H1999 of tumult H6963 like the noise H4264 of a host: H5975 when they stood, H7503 they let down H3671 their wings.
25 H6963 And there was a voice H7549 above the firmament H7218 that was over their heads: H5975 when they stood, H7503 they let down H3671 their wings.
26 H4605 And above H7549 the firmament H7218 that was over their heads H1823 was the likeness H3678 of a throne, H4758 as the appearance H5601 of a sapphire H68 stone; H1823 and upon the likeness H3678 of the throne H1823 was a likeness H4758 as the appearance H120 of a man H4605 upon it above.
27 H7200 And I saw H5869 as it were glowing H2830 metal, H4758 as the appearance H784 of fire H1004 within H5439 it round about, H4758 from the appearance H4975 of his loins H4605 and upward; H4758 and from the appearance H4975 of his loins H4295 and downward H7200 I saw H4758 as it were the appearance H784 of fire, H5051 and there was brightness H5439 round about him.
28 H4758 As the appearance H7198 of the bow H6051 that is in the cloud H3117 in the day H1653 of rain, H4758 so was the appearance H5051 of the brightness H5439 round about. H4758 This was the appearance H1823 of the likeness H3519 of the glory H3068 of Jehovah. H7200 And when I saw H5307 it, I fell H6440 upon my face, H8085 and I heard H6963 a voice H1696 of one that spake.
