1: Then I looked, and see, in the expanse that was over the head of the cherubim there appeared above them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne. 2: He spoke to the man clothed in linen, and said, Go in between the whirling [wheels], even under the cherub, and fill both your hands with coals of fire from between the cherubim, and scatter them over the city. He went in as I watched. 3: Now the cherubim stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court. 4: The glory of Yahweh mounted up from the cherub, [and stood] over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of Yahweh's glory. 5: The sound of the wings of the cherubim was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of God Almighty when he speaks. 6: It came to pass, when he commanded the man clothed in linen, saying, Take fire from between the whirling wheels, from between the cherubim, that he went in, and stood beside a wheel. 7: The cherub stretched forth his hand from between the cherubim to the fire that was between the cherubim, and took [of it], and put it into the hands of him who was clothed in linen, who took it and went out. 8: There appeared in the cherubim the form of a man's hand under their wings. 9: I looked, and behold, four wheels beside the cherubim, one wheel beside one cherub, and another wheel beside another cherub; and the appearance of the wheels was like a beryl stone. 10: As for their appearance, they four had one likeness, as if a wheel have been within a wheel. 11: When they went, they went in their four directions: they didn't turn as they went, but to the place where the head looked they followed it; they didn't turn as they went. 12: Their whole body, and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels, were full of eyes round about, [even] the wheels that they four had. 13: As for the wheels, they were called in my hearing, the whirling [wheels]. 14: Every one had four faces: the first face was the face of the cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third face the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle. 15: The cherubim mounted up: this is the living creature that I saw by the river Chebar. 16: When the cherubim went, the wheels went beside them; and when the cherubim lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the wheels also didn't turn from beside them. 17: When they stood, these stood; and when they mounted up, these mounted up with them: for the spirit of the living creature was in them. 18: The glory of Yahweh went forth from over the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubim. 19: The cherubim lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight when they went forth, and the wheels beside them: and they stood at the door of the east gate of Yahweh's house; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above. 20: This is the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river Chebar; and I knew that they were cherubim. 21: Every one had four faces, and every one four wings; and the likeness of the hands of a man was under their wings. 22: As for the likeness of their faces, they were the faces which I saw by the river Chebar, their appearances and themselves; they went every one straight forward.
