4 As I looked, behold, a astorm wind was coming from the north, a great cloud with fire flashing forth continually and a bright light around it, and in its midst something like bglowing metal in the midst of the fire.
11 Such were their faces. Their wings were spread out above; each had two touching another being, and atwo covering their bodies.
13 1In the midst of the living beings there was something that looked like burning coals of afire, 2like torches darting back and forth among the living beings. The fire was bright, and lightning was 3flashing from the fire.
18 As for their rims they were lofty and awesome, and the rims of all four of them were afull of eyes round about.
21 aWhenever those went, these went; and whenever those stood still, these stood still. And whenever those rose from the earth, the wheels rose close beside them; for the spirit of the living 1beings was in the wheels.
23 Under the expanse their wings were stretched out straight, one toward the other; each one also had atwo wings covering its body on the one side and on the other.
24 I also heard the sound of their wings like the asound of abundant waters as they went, like the bvoice of 1the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the csound of an army camp; whenever they stood still, they dropped their wings.
25 And there came a voice from above the aexpanse that was over their heads; whenever they stood still, they dropped their wings.
26 Now aabove the expanse that was over their heads there was something bresembling a throne, like 1clapis lazuli in appearance; and on that which resembled a throne, high up, was a figure with the appearance of a dman.
27 Then I 1noticed from the appearance of His loins and upward something alike 2glowing metal that looked like fire all around within it, and from the appearance of His loins and downward I saw something like fire; and there was a radiance around Him.
28 As the appearance of the arainbow 1in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the surrounding radiance. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the bglory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I cfell on my face and heard a voice speaking.
