1 In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the Chebar canal, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.[a]2 On the fifth day of the month (it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin),3 the word of the Lord came to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the Chebar canal, and the hand of the Lord was upon him there.
The Glory of the Lord
4 As I looked, behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, and a great cloud, with brightness around it, and fire flashing forth continually, and in the midst of the fire, as it were gleaming metal.[b]5 And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness,
16 As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of beryl. And the four had the same likeness, their appearance and construction being as it were a wheel within a wheel.17 When they went, they went in any of their four directions[a]without turning as they went.18 And their rims were tall and awesome, and the rims of all four were full of eyes all around.19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose.20 Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures[b] was in the wheels.21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
