Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:1 - In my thirtieth year, in the fourth month on the fifth day, while I was among the exiles by the Kebar River, the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:2 - On the fifth of the month—it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin—

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:3 - the word of the LORD came to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, by the Kebar River in the land of the Babylonians.[fn] There the hand of the LORD was on him.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:4 - I looked, and I saw a windstorm coming out of the north—an immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light. The center of the fire looked like glowing metal,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:5 - and in the fire was what looked like four living creatures. In appearance their form was human,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:6 - but each of them had four faces and four wings.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:7 - Their legs were straight; their feet were like those of a calf and gleamed like burnished bronze.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:8 - Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. All four of them had faces and wings,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:9 - and the wings of one touched the wings of another. Each one went straight ahead; they did not turn as they moved.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:10 - Their faces looked like this: Each of the four had the face of a human being, and on the right side each had the face of a lion, and on the left the face of an ox; each also had the face of an eagle.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:11 - Such were their faces. They each had two wings spreading out upward, each wing touching that of the creature on either side; and each had two other wings covering its body.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:12 - Each one went straight ahead. Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, without turning as they went.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:13 - The appearance of the living creatures was like burning coals of fire or like torches. Fire moved back and forth among the creatures; it was bright, and lightning flashed out of it.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:14 - The creatures sped back and forth like flashes of lightning.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:15 - As I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the ground beside each creature with its four faces.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:16 - This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like topaz, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:17 - As they moved, they would go in any one of the four directions the creatures faced; the wheels did not change direction as the creatures went.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:18 - Their rims were high and awesome, and all four rims were full of eyes all around.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:19 - When the living creatures moved, the wheels beside them moved; and when the living creatures rose from the ground, the wheels also rose.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:20 - Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, and the wheels would rise along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:21 - When the creatures moved, they also moved; when the creatures stood still, they also stood still; and when the creatures rose from the ground, the wheels rose along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:22 - Spread out above the heads of the living creatures was what looked something like a vault, sparkling like crystal, and awesome.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:23 - Under the vault their wings were stretched out one toward the other, and each had two wings covering its body.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:24 - When the creatures moved, I heard the sound of their wings, like the roar of rushing waters, like the voice of the Almighty,[fn] like the tumult of an army. When they stood still, they lowered their wings.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:25 - Then there came a voice from above the vault over their heads as they stood with lowered wings.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:26 - Above the vault over their heads was what looked like a throne of lapis lazuli, and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a man.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:27 - I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 1:28 - Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking.
