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 rushing1 waters, like the voice2 of the Almighty,a like the tumult of an army.3 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 throne4 of sapphire,b5 and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a man.627
I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him.728
Like the appearance of a rainbow8 in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him.9 This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory10 of the LORD. When I saw it, I fell facedown,11 and I heard the voice of one speaking.
