Hebrew - seraphim
SERAPHIM

Burning ones, celestial beings surrounding the throne of God. Compare Deuteronomy 4:24 Hebrews 12:29. They appear to be distinguished from the cherubim, Ezekiel 1:5-12. The prophet Isaiah, Isaiah 6:2,3, represents them as reverently adoring the triune God, and burning with zeal to fly and execute his will. Each one had six wings, with two of which he covered his face, with two his feet, and with the two others he flew. They cried to one another, and said, "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory!"
