The cherubim went in whatever direction the head faced, without turning as they went.12 Their entire bodies, including their backs, their hands and their wings, were completely full of eyes, as were their four wheels.13 I heard the wheels being called “the whirling wheels.”14 Each of the cherubim had four faces: One face was that of a cherub, the second the face of a human being, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.
