This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like chrysolite,1 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 turn2 abouta as the creatures went.
Their rims were high and awesome, and all four rims were full of eyes3 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,4 and the wheels would rise along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.
When the creatures moved, they also moved; when the creatures stood still, they also stood still; and when the creatures rose from the ground, the wheels rose along with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels.522
Spread out above the heads of the living creatures was what looked like an expanse,6 sparkling like ice, and awesome.
Under the expanse their wings were stretched out one toward the other, and each had two wings covering its body.
When the creatures moved, I heard the sound of their wings, like the roar of rushing7 waters, like the voice8 of the Almighty,b like the tumult of an army.9 When they stood still, they lowered their wings.
Then there came a voice from above the expanse over their heads as they stood with lowered wings.
Above the expanse over their heads was what looked like a throne10 of sapphire,c11 and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a man.12
