1 In the thirtieth year, on the fifth day of the fourth month, as I was among the exiles by the River Chebar, heaven opened and I saw visions from God.
Acts 7:56 Matt 3:16 Ezek 11:24 Rev 19:11 Ezek 8:3 Ezek 10:15 Acts 10:11
2 On the fifth of the month -- it was the fifth year of exile for King Jehoiachin-
2Kgs 24:12-15 Ezek 8:1 Ezek 20:1 Ezek 40:1 Ezek 29:17 Ezek 29:1 Ezek 31:1
3 the word of Yahweh was addressed to the priest Ezekiel son of Buzi, in Chaldaea by the River Chebar. There the hand of Yahweh came on him.
2Kgs 3:15 Ezek 3:14 Ezek 3:22 1Kgs 18:46 Ezek 8:1 Ezek 33:22 Ezek 37:1
4 I looked; a stormy wind blew from the north, a great cloud with flashing fire and brilliant light round it, and in the middle, in the heart of the fire, a brilliance like that of amber,
Ezek 1:27 Ezek 8:2 Jer 23:19 Isa 21:1 Jer 25:32 2Chr 5:13-1 2Chr 7:1-3
5 and in the middle what seemed to be four living creatures. They looked like this: They were of human form.
Ezek 1:26 Rev 4:6-8 Rev 6:6
6 Each had four faces, each had four wings.
Ezek 10:14 1Kgs 6:24-27 Exod 25:20 Ezek 1:8-11 Ezek 1:15 Ezek 10:10 Ezek 10:21-22
7 Their legs were straight; they had hooves like calves, glittering like polished brass.
Rev 1:15 Dan 10:6 Ezek 1:13 Ps 104:4 Lev 11:3 Lev 11:47
8 Below their wings, they had human hands on all four sides corresponding to their four faces and four wings.
Ezek 10:21 Ezek 1:17 Ezek 8:3 Ezek 10:2 Ezek 10:7-8 Ezek 10:11 Ezek 10:18
9 They touched one another with their wings; they did not turn as they moved; each one moved straight forward.
Ezek 10:22 1Cor 1:10 2Chr 3:11-12 Ezek 1:11-12 Ezek 10:11 Luke 9:51 Luke 9:62
10 As to the appearance of their faces, all four had a human face, and a lion's face to the right, and all four had a bull's face to the left, and all four had an eagle's face.
Ezek 10:14 Rev 4:7 1Chr 12:8 1Cor 9:9-10 Dan 7:4 Deut 28:49 Isa 40:31
11 Their wings were spread upwards, each had one pair touching its neighbour's, and the other pair covering its body.
Isa 6:2 Ezek 1:23 Ezek 10:16 Ezek 10:19
12 And each one moved straight forward; they went where the spirit urged them, they did not turn as they moved.
Ezek 1:9 Ezek 1:17 Ezek 1:20-21 Ezek 10:22 Heb 1:14
13 Between these living creatures were what looked like blazing coals, like torches, darting backwards and forwards between the living creatures; the fire gave a brilliant light, and lightning flashed from the fire,
Ps 104:4 Rev 4:5 Dan 10:5-6 Ezek 1:7 Gen 15:17 Matt 28:3 Rev 10:1
14 and the living creatures kept disappearing and reappearing like flashes of lightning.
Matt 24:27 Zech 4:10 Dan 9:21 Luke 17:24 Mark 13:27 Matt 24:31 Ps 147:15
15 Now, as I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel touching the ground beside each of the four-faced living creatures.
Ezek 10:9 Dan 7:9 Ezek 1:6 Ezek 1:19-21 Ezek 10:13-17 Rev 4:7
16 The appearance and structure of the wheels were like glittering chrysolite. All four looked alike, and their appearance and structure were such that each wheel seemed to have another wheel inside it.
Dan 10:6 Ezek 10:9-11 Eph 3:10 Exod 39:13 Job 9:10 Ps 36:6 Ps 40:5
17 In whichever of the four directions they moved, they did not need to turn as they moved.
Ezek 1:9 Ezek 1:12 Ezek 10:1-11 Isa 55:11
18 Their circumference was of awe-inspiring size, and the rims of all four sparkled all the way round.
Ezek 10:12 Rev 4:6 Rev 4:8 Isa 55:9 Job 37:22-24 Ps 77:16-19 Ps 97:2-5
19 When the living creatures moved, the wheels moved beside them; and when the living creatures left the ground, the wheels too left the ground.
Ezek 10:16 Ezek 10:19 Ps 103:20
20 They moved in whichever direction the spirit chose to go, and the wheels rose with them, since the wheels shared the spirit of the animals.
Ezek 1:12 Ezek 10:17 1Cor 14:32 Zech 6:1-8
21 When the living creatures moved on, they moved on; when the former halted, the latter halted; when the former left the ground, the wheels too left the ground, since the wheels shared the spirit of the animals.
Ezek 10:17 Ezek 1:19-20 Rom 8:2
22 Over the heads of the living creatures was what looked like a solid surface glittering like crystal, spread out over their heads, above them,
Ezek 10:1 Ezek 1:26 Rev 4:6 Exod 24:10 Job 37:22 Rev 4:3 Rev 21:11
23 and under the solid surface, their wings were spread out straight, touching one another, and each had a pair covering its body.
Ezek 1:11-12 Ezek 1:24 Job 4:18 Luke 17:10 Ps 89:7
24 I also heard the noise of their wings; when they moved, it was like the noise of flood-waters, like the voice of Shaddai, like the noise of a storm, like the noise of an armed camp; and when they halted, they lowered their wings;
Dan 10:6 Ezek 43:2 Rev 1:15 Rev 19:6 2Kgs 7:6 Ezek 10:5 Ps 68:33
25 there was a noise too.
26 Beyond the solid surface above their heads, there was what seemed like a sapphire, in the form of a throne. High above on the form of a throne was a form with the appearance of a human being.
Ezek 10:1 Exod 24:10 Rev 1:13 Ezek 1:22 Isa 6:1 Isa 54:11 1Pet 3:22
27 I saw a brilliance like amber, like fire, radiating from what appeared to be the waist upwards; and from what appeared to be the waist downwards, I saw what looked like fire, giving a brilliant light all round.
Ezek 1:4 Ezek 8:2 2Thess 1:8 Deut 4:24 Heb 12:29 Ps 50:3 Ps 97:2
28 The radiance of the encircling light was like the radiance of the bow in the clouds on rainy days. The sight was like the glory of Yahweh. I looked and fell to the ground, and I heard the voice of someone speaking to me.
Ezek 3:23 Rev 10:1 Dan 8:17 Ezek 8:4 Gen 17:3 Rev 4:3 Exod 24:16
