The LORD’s Glory Leaves the Temple
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:1 - In my vision I saw what appeared to be a throne of blue lapis lazuli above the crystal surface over the heads of the cherubim.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:2 - Then the LORD spoke to the man in linen clothing and said, “Go between the whirling wheels beneath the cherubim, and take a handful of burning coals and scatter them over the city.” He did this as I watched.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:3 - The cherubim were standing at the south end of the Temple when the man went in, and the cloud of glory filled the inner courtyard.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:4 - Then the glory of the LORD rose up from above the cherubim and went over to the door of the Temple. The Temple was filled with this cloud of glory, and the courtyard glowed brightly with the glory of the LORD.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:5 - The moving wings of the cherubim sounded like the voice of God Almighty[fn] and could be heard even in the outer courtyard.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:6 - The LORD said to the man in linen clothing, “Go between the cherubim and take some burning coals from between the wheels.” So the man went in and stood beside one of the wheels.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:7 - Then one of the cherubim reached out his hand and took some live coals from the fire burning among them. He put the coals into the hands of the man in linen clothing, and the man took them and went out.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:8 - (All the cherubim had what looked like human hands under their wings.)
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:9 - I looked, and each of the four cherubim had a wheel beside him, and the wheels sparkled like beryl.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:10 - All four wheels looked alike and were made the same; each wheel had a second wheel turning crosswise within it.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:11 - The cherubim could move in any of the four directions they faced, without turning as they moved. They went straight in the direction they faced, never turning aside.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:12 - Both the cherubim and the wheels were covered with eyes. The cherubim had eyes all over their bodies, including their hands, their backs, and their wings.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:13 - I heard someone refer to the wheels as “the whirling wheels.”
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:14 - Each of the four cherubim had four faces: the first was the face of an ox,[fn] the second was a human face, the third was the face of a lion, and the fourth was the face of an eagle.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:15 - Then the cherubim rose upward. These were the same living beings I had seen beside the Kebar River.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:16 - When the cherubim moved, the wheels moved with them. When they lifted their wings to fly, the wheels stayed beside them.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:17 - When the cherubim stopped, the wheels stopped. When they flew upward, the wheels rose up, for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:18 - Then the glory of the LORD moved out from the door of the Temple and hovered above the cherubim.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:19 - And as I watched, the cherubim flew with their wheels to the east gate of the LORD’s Temple. And the glory of the God of Israel hovered above them.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:20 - These were the same living beings I had seen beneath the God of Israel when I was by the Kebar River. I knew they were cherubim,
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:21 - for each had four faces and four wings and what looked like human hands under their wings.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 10:22 - And their faces were just like the faces of the beings I had seen at the Kebar, and they traveled straight ahead, just as the others had.
