Date of Vision of Living Creatures and Glory of the Throne of Yahweh

1 And it was in [the] thirtieth year, in the fourth [month], on the fifth [day] of the month, and I [was] in the midst ofa the exilesb by the {Kebar River}.c The heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God. 2 On the fifth [day] of the month--it was the fifth year of the exile of the king Jehoiachin-- 3 the word of Yahweh {came}d clearlye to Ezekiel the son of Buzi, the priest, in the land of [the] Chaldeans at the {Kebar River},f and the hand of Yahweh was on him there. 4 And I looked,g and look! A storm wind [was] coming from the north, a great cloud, and fire flashing back and forth, and brightness around [and] {within it},h and from its midsti [it was] like [the] outward appearance of amber stone from the midstj of the fire. 5 And from its midstk [was] the likeness of four living creatures, and this [was] their appearance: {a human form},l 6 and {each had four faces},m and {each of them had four wings}.n 7 And their legs [were] straight legs, and the sole of their feet [was] like the sole of [the] foot of a calf, and [they] were sparkling like the outward appearance of polished bronze. 8 And under their wings [were] {human hands}o on their four sides. And their faces and their wings for the four of them [were as follows]: 9 {their wings were touching one another};p {each of them went straight forward},q {without turning right or left}.r
