22 Over the heads of the living creatures there was (A)the likeness of an expanse, shining like awe-inspiring (B)crystal, spread out above their heads. 23 And under the expanse their wings were (C)stretched out straight, one toward another. (D)And each creature had two wings covering its body. 24 And when they went, I heard the sound of their wings (E)like the sound of many waters, like (F)the sound of the (G)Almighty, a sound of tumult (H)like the sound of an army. When they stood still, they let down their wings. 25 And there came a voice from above (I)the expanse over their heads. When they stood still, they let down their wings.

26 And above the expanse over their heads there was (J)the likeness of a throne, (K)in appearance (L)like sapphire;[a] and seated above the likeness of a throne was (M)a likeness with a human appearance.
