Their faces looked like this: Each of the four had the face of a man, and on the right side each had the face of a lion, and on the left the face of an ox; each also had the face of an eagle.111
Such were their faces. Their wings2 were spread out upward; each had two wings, one touching the wing of another creature on either side, and two wings covering its body.
Each one went straight ahead. Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, without turning as they went.313
The appearance of the living creatures was like burning coals4 of fire or like torches. Fire moved back and forth among the creatures; it was bright, and lightning5 flashed out of it.
The creatures sped back and forth like flashes of lightning.615
As I looked at the living creatures,7 I saw a wheel8 on the ground beside each creature with its four faces.
This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like chrysolite,9 and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel.
As they moved, they would go in any one of the four directions the creatures faced; the wheels did not turn10 abouta as the creatures went.
Their rims were high and awesome, and all four rims were full of eyes11 all around.
When the living creatures moved, the wheels beside them moved; and when the living creatures rose from the ground, the wheels also rose.
Wherever the spirit would go, they would go,12 and the wheels would rise along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
