Revelation 4:5-7 New International Reader's Version (NIRV)

From the throne came flashes of lightning, rumblings and thunder. Seven lamps were blazing in front of the throne. These stand for the seven spirits of God. There was something that looked like a sea of glass in front of the throne. It was as clear as crystal.

In the inner circle, around the throne, were four living creatures. They were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first creature looked like a lion. The second looked like an ox. The third had a man’s face. The fourth looked like a flying eagle.
