Ezekiel 10

1Then I looked up at the bowl over the heads of the Cherub angels. The bowl looked clear blue like sapphire. And there was something that looked like a throne over the bowl. 2Then ˻the person sitting on the throne˼ said to the man dressed in linen clothes, “Step into the area between the wheels under the Cherub angels. Take a handful of the burning coals from between the Cherub angels and go throw them over the city of Jerusalem.” The man walked past me. 3The Cherub angels were standing in the area south of the temple as the man walked to them. The cloud filled the inner courtyard. 4Then the Glory of the Lord rose up off of the Cherub angels near the threshold of the door of the temple. Then the cloud filled the temple. And the bright light from the Glory of the Lord filled the whole courtyard. 5The noise from the wings of the Cherub angels could be heard all the way out in the outer courtyard. The sound was very loud—like the thundering voice when God All-Powerful speaks. 6˻God˼ had given the man dressed in linen clothes a command. ˻God˼ had told him to go into the area between the wheels among the Cherub angels and get some hot coals. So the man went there and stood by the wheel. 7One of the Cherub angels reached out his hand and took some of the hot coals from the area between the Cherub angels. He poured the coals into the man’s hands. And the man left. ( 8The Cherub angels had what looked like human arms under their wings.) 9Then I noticed that there were four wheels. There was one wheel by each Cherub angel. And the wheels looked like a clear yellow jewel. 10There were four wheels and they all looked the same. They looked like there was a wheel in a wheel. 11They could go in any direction when they moved. But ˻the Cherub angels˼ did not turn around when they moved. They went in the direction that the head was looking. They did not turn around when they moved. 12There were eyes all over their bodies. There were eyes on their backs, on their arms, on their wings, and on their wheels. ˻Yes, there were eyes on˼ all four wheels! 13These wheels were what I heard called, “the area between the wheels.” 14- 15Each Cherub angel had four faces. The first face was a Cherub’s face. The second face was a man’s face. The third face was a lion’s face. And the fourth face was an eagle’s face. Then ˻I realized that˼ the animals I saw in the vision by the Kebar Canal were Cherub angels! Then the Cherub angels rose into the air. 16And the wheels rose with them. When the Cherub angels raised their wings and flew into the air, not even the wheels turned around. 17If the Cherub angels flew into the air, the wheels went with them. If the Cherub angels stood still, so did the wheels. Why? Because the wind ˻(power)˼ of the animal was in them. 18Then the Glory of the Lord rose from the threshold of the temple, moved to the place over the Cherub angels and stopped there. 19Then the Cherub angels raised their wings and flew into the air. I saw them leave ˻the temple˼! The wheels went with them. Then they stopped at the East Gate of the Lord’s temple. The Glory of the God of Israel was in the air above them. 20Then I remembered the animals under the Glory of the God of Israel in the vision at the Kebar Canal. And I realized those animals were Cherub angels. 21˻I mean,˼ each animal had four faces, four wings, and something that looked like human arms under their wings. 22The faces of the Cherub angels were the same as the four faces on the animals in the vision by the Kebar Canal. And they all looked straight ahead in the direction they were going.
