9-13 Each of the four Guardian Angels had a wheel beside him—“The Whirl-Wheels,” as I heard them called, for each one had a second wheel crosswise within—sparkling like chrysolite, giving off a greenish yellow glow. Because of the construction of these wheels,[a] the Angels could go straight forward in each of four directions; they did not turn when they changed direction but could go in any of the four ways their faces looked.
