Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And I look, and lo, on the expanse that [is] above the head of the cherubs, as a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne, He hath been seen over them. 1 I looked, and I saw the likeness of a throne of sapphire above the expanse that was over the heads of the cherubim.
2 And He speaketh unto the man clothed with linen, and saith, `Go in unto the midst of the wheel, unto the place of the cherub, and fill thy hands with coals of fire from between the cherubs, and scatter over the city.' And he goeth in before mine eyes. 2 The LORD said to the man clothed in linen, "Go in among the wheels beneath the cherubim. Fill your hands with burning coals from among the cherubim and scatter them over the city." And as I watched, he went in.
3 And the cherubs are standing on the right side of the house, at the going in of the man, and the cloud hath filled the inner court, 3 Now the cherubim were standing on the south side of the temple when the man went in, and a cloud filled the inner court.
4 and become high doth the honour of Jehovah above the cherub, over the threshold of the house, and the house is filled with the cloud, and the court hath been filled with the brightness of the honour of Jehovah. 4 Then the glory of the LORD rose from above the cherubim and moved to the threshold of the temple. The cloud filled the temple, and the court was full of the radiance of the glory of the LORD.
5 And a noise of the wings of the cherubs hath been heard unto the outer court, as the voice of God -- the Mighty One -- in His speaking. 5 The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard as far away as the outer court, like the voice of God Almighty when he speaks.
6 And it cometh to pass, in His commanding the man clothed with linen, saying, `Take fire from between the wheel, from between the cherubs,' and he goeth in and standeth near the wheel, 6 When the LORD commanded the man in linen, "Take fire from among the wheels, from among the cherubim," the man went in and stood beside a wheel.
7 that the [one] cherub putteth forth his hand from between the cherubs unto the fire that [is] between the cherubs, and lifteth up, and giveth into the hands of him who is clothed with linen, and he receiveth, and cometh forth. 7 Then one of the cherubim reached out his hand to the fire that was among them. He took up some of it and put it into the hands of the man in linen, who took it and went out.
8 And there appeareth in the cherubs the form of a hand of man under their wings, 8 (Under the wings of the cherubim could be seen what looked like the hands of a man.)
9 and I look, and lo, four wheels near the cherubs, one wheel near the one cherub, and another wheel near the other cherub, and the appearance of the wheels [is] as the colour of a beryl stone. 9 I looked, and I saw beside the cherubim four wheels, one beside each of the cherubim; the wheels sparkled like chrysolite.
10 As to their appearances, one likeness [is] to them four, as it were the wheel in the midst of the wheel. 10 As for their appearance, the four of them looked alike; each was like a wheel intersecting a wheel.
11 In their going, on their four sides they go; they turn not round in their going, for to the place whither the head turneth, after it they go, they turn not round in their going. 11 As they moved, they would go in any one of the four directions the cherubim faced; the wheels did not turn about as the cherubim went. The cherubim went in whatever direction the head faced, without turning as they went.
12 And all their flesh, and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels, are full of eyes round about; to them four [are] their wheels. 12 Their entire bodies, including their backs, their hands and their wings, were completely full of eyes, as were their four wheels.
13 To the wheels -- to them is one calling in mine ears, `O wheel!' 13 I heard the wheels being called "the whirling wheels."
14 And four faces [are] to each; the face of the one [is] the face of the cherub, and the face of the second the face of man, and of the third the face of a lion, and of the fourth the face of an eagle. 14 Each of the cherubim had four faces: One face was that of a cherub, the second the face of a man, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.
15 And the cherubs are lifted up, it [is] the living creature that I saw by the river Chebar. 15 Then the cherubim rose upward. These were the living creatures I had seen by the Kebar River.
16 And in the going of the cherubs, the wheels go beside them; and in the cherubs lifting up their wings to be high above the earth, the wheels turn not round, even they, from being beside them. 16 When the cherubim moved, the wheels beside them moved; and when the cherubim spread their wings to rise from the ground, the wheels did not leave their side.
17 In their standing they stand, and in their exaltation they are exalted with them: for the living spirit [is] in them. 17 When the cherubim stood still, they also stood still; and when the cherubim rose, they rose with them, because the spirit of the living creatures was in them.
18 And go forth doth the honour of Jehovah from off the threshold of the house, and standeth over the cherubs, 18 Then the glory of the LORD departed from over the threshold of the temple and stopped above the cherubim.
19 and the cherubs lift up their wings, and are lifted up from the earth before mine eyes; in their going forth, the wheels also [are] over-against them, and he standeth at the opening of the east gate of the house of Jehovah, and the honour of the God of Israel [is] over them from above. 19 While I watched, the cherubim spread their wings and rose from the ground, and as they went, the wheels went with them. They stopped at the entrance to the east gate of the LORD's house, and the glory of the God of Israel was above them.
20 It [is] the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel by the river Chebar, and I know that they are cherubs. 20 These were the living creatures I had seen beneath the God of Israel by the Kebar River, and I realized that they were cherubim.
21 Four faces [are] to each, and four wings to each, and the likeness of the hands of man [is] under their wings. 21 Each had four faces and four wings, and under their wings was what looked like the hands of a man.
22 As to the likeness of their faces, they [are] the faces that I saw by the river Chebar, their appearances and themselves; each straight forward they go. 22 Their faces had the same appearance as those I had seen by the Kebar River. Each one went straight ahead.
