As I looked, behold, a storm 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 glowing metal in the midst of the fire. (Ezekiel 1:4)

Within it there were figures resembling four living beings. And this was their appearance: they had human form. (Ezekiel 1:5)

Each of them had four faces and four wings. (Ezekiel 1:6)

Their legs were straight and their feet were like a calf's hoof, and they gleamed like burnished bronze. (Ezekiel 1:7)

Under their wings on their four sides were human hands. As for the faces and wings of the four of them, (Ezekiel 1:8)

their wings touched one another; their faces did not turn when they moved, each went straight forward. (Ezekiel 1:9)

As for the form of their faces, each had the face of a man; all four had the face of a lion on the right and the face of a bull on the left, and all four had the face of an eagle. (Ezekiel 1:10)

Such were their faces. Their wings were spread out above; each had two touching another being, and two covering their bodies. (Ezekiel 1:11)

And each went straight forward; wherever the spirit was about to go, they would go, without turning as they went. (Ezekiel 1:12)

In the midst of the living beings there was something that looked like burning coals of fire, like torches darting back and forth among the living beings. The fire was bright, and lightning was flashing from the fire. (Ezekiel 1:13)

And the living beings ran to and fro like bolts of lightning. (Ezekiel 1:14)
