Ezekiel 1:26-2:1 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

26 And above the dome over their heads there was something like a throne, in appearance like sapphire;[a] and seated above the likeness of a throne was something that seemed like a human form. 27 Upward from what appeared like the loins I saw something like gleaming amber, something that looked like fire enclosed all around; and downward from what looked like the loins I saw something that looked like fire, and there was a splendor all around. 28 Like the bow in a cloud on a rainy day, such was the appearance of the splendor all around. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord.

When I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of someone speaking.

The Vision of the Scroll

He said to me: O mortal,[b] stand up on your feet, and I will speak with you.
