Ezekiel 1:21-23 New English Translation (NET Bible)

21 When the living beings moved, the wheels moved, and when they stopped moving, the wheels stopped.[a] When they rose up from the ground, the wheels rose up from the ground; the wheels rose up beside them because the spirit of the living being was in the wheel.

22 Over the heads of the living beings was something like a platform,[b] glittering awesomely like ice,[c] stretched out over their heads. 23 Under the platform their wings were stretched out, each toward the other. Each of the beings also had two wings covering[d] its body.


  1. Ezekiel 1:21 tc The LXX reads: “when it went, they went; when it stood, they stood.”tn Heb “when they went, they went; when they stood, they stood.”
  2. Ezekiel 1:22 tn Or “like a dome” (NCV, NRSV, TEV).
  3. Ezekiel 1:22 tn Or “like crystal” (NRSV, NLT).
  4. Ezekiel 1:23 tc Heb “each had two wings covering and each had two wings covering,” a case of dittography. On the analogy of v. 11 and the support of the LXX, which reads the same for v. 11 and this verse, one should perhaps read “each had two wings touching another being and each had two wings covering.”
