Ezekiel 10 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

10 1 Of the man that took hot burning coals out of the middle of the wheels of the Cherubims. 8 A rehearsal of the vision of the wheels, of the beasts, and of the Cherubims.

And as I looked, behold in the firmament that was above the head of the [a]Cherubims there appeared upon them like unto the similitude of a throne, as it were a sapphire stone.

And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels, even under the Cherub, and fill thine hands with coals of fire from between the Cherubims, and scatter them over [b]the city. And he went in my sight.

Now the Cherubims stood upon the right side of the house, when the man went in, and the cloud filled the inner court.

Then the glory of the Lord [c]went up from the Cherub, and stood over the door of the house, and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was filled with the brightness of the Lord’s glory.

And the [d]sound of the Cherubims’ wings was heard into the utter court, as the voice of the Almighty God, when he speaketh.

And when he had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, and from between the Cherubims, then he went in and stood beside the wheel.

And one Cherub stretched forth his hand from between the Cherubims unto the fire that was between the Cherubims, and took thereof, and put it into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it and went out.

And there appeared in the Cherubims, the likeness of a man’s hand under their wings.

And when I looked up, behold, four wheels were beside the Cherubims, one wheel by one Cherub, and another wheel by another Cherub, and the appearance of the wheels was as the color of a [e]Chrysolite stone.

10 And their appearance (for they were all four of one fashion) was as if one wheel had been in another wheel.

11 When they went forth, they went upon their four sides, and they returned not as they went: but to the place whither the first went, they went after it, and they [f]turned not as they went.

12 And their whole body, and their [g]rings, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels were full of eyes round about, even in the same four wheels.

13 And the Cherub cried to these wheels in mine hearing, saying, O wheel.

14 And every beast had four faces: the first face was the face of a Cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an Eagle.

15 And the Cherubims were lifted up: this is the beast that I saw at the river Chebar.

16 And when the Cherubims went, the wheels went by them: and when the Cherubims lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the same wheels also turned not from beside them.

17 When the Cherubims stood, they stood: and when they were lifted up, they lifted themselves up also: for the [h]spirit of the beast was in them.

18 [i]Then the glory of the Lord departed from above the door of the house, and stood upon the Cherubims.

19 And the Cherubims lifted up their wings and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them: and everyone stood at the entry of the gate of the Lord’s House at the East side, and the glory of the God of Israel was upon them on high.

20 This is the [j]beast that I saw under the God of Israel by the river Chebar, and I knew that they were the Cherubims.

21 Every one had four faces, and every one four wings, and the likeness of man’s hands was under their wings.

22 And the likeness of their faces was the selfsame faces, which I saw by the river Chebar, and the appearance of the Cherubims was the selfsame, and they went every one straight forward.
