The man brought me to the east gate.
Oh! The bright Glory of the God of Israel rivered out of the east sounding like the roar of floodwaters, and the earth itself glowed with the bright Glory.
It looked just like what I had seen when he came to destroy the city, exactly like what I had seen earlier at the Kebar River. And again I fell, face to the ground.
The bright Glory of God poured into the Temple through the east gate.
The Spirit put me on my feet and led me to the inside courtyard and - oh! the bright Glory of God filled the Temple!
I heard someone speaking to me from inside the Temple while the man stood beside me.
