Ezekiel 1:1-6 GW

1 On the fifth day of the fourth month in the thirtieth year, while I was living among the exiles by the Chebar River, the sky opened, and I saw visions from God.
2 On the fifth day of the month, during the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiakin,
3 the LORD spoke his word to the priest Ezekiel, son of Buzi, in Babylon by the Chebar River. The power of the LORD came over Ezekiel.
4 As I looked, I saw a storm coming from the north. There was an immense cloud with flashing lightning surrounded by a bright light. The middle of the lightning looked like glowing metal.
5 In the center of the cloud I saw what looked like four living creatures. They were shaped like humans,
6 but each of them had four faces and four wings.
