Ezekiel 1

CEB 1 In the thirtieth year, on the fifth day of the fourth month, I was with the exiles at the Chebar River when the heavens opened and I saw visions of God. NRS 1 In the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, as I was among the exiles by the river Chebar, the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God. CEB 2 (It happened on the fifth day of the month, in the fifth year after King Jehoiachin's deportation. NRS 2 On the fifth day of the month (it was the fifth year of the exile of King Jehoiachin), CEB 3 The LORD's word burst in on the priest Ezekiel, Buzi's son, in the land of Babylon at the Chebar River. There the LORD's power overcame him.) NRS 3 the word of the Lord came to the priest Ezekiel son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the Lord was on him there. CEB 4 As I watched, suddenly a driving storm came out of the north, a great cloud flashing fire, with brightness all around. At its center, in the middle of the fire, there was something like gleaming amber. NRS 4 As I looked, a stormy wind came out of the north: a great cloud with brightness around it and fire flashing forth continually, and in the middle of the fire, something like gleaming amber. CEB 5 And inside that were forms of four living creatures. This was what they looked like: Each had the form of a human being, NRS 5 In the middle of it was something like four living creatures. This was their appearance: they were of human form. CEB 6 though each had four faces and four wings. NRS 6 Each had four faces, and each of them had four wings. CEB 7 Their feet looked like proper feet, but the soles of their feet were like calves' hooves, and they shone like burnished bronze. NRS 7 Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf's foot; and they sparkled like burnished bronze. CEB 8 Human hands were under their wings on all four sides. All four creatures had faces and wings, and NRS 8 Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. And the four had their faces and their wings thus: CEB 9 their wings touched each other's wings. When they moved, they each went straight ahead without turning. NRS 9 their wings touched one another; each of them moved straight ahead, without turning as they moved. CEB 10 As for the form of their faces: each of the four had a human face, with a lion's face on the right and a bull's face on the left, and also an eagle's face. NRS 10 As for the appearance of their faces: the four had the face of a human being, the face of a lion on the right side, the face of an ox on the left side, and the face of an eagle; CEB 11 The pairs of wings that stretched out overhead touched each other, while the other pairs covered their bodies. NRS 11 such were their faces. Their wings were spread out above; each creature had two wings, each of which touched the wing of another, while two covered their bodies. CEB 12 Each moved straight ahead wherever the wind propelled them; they moved without turning. NRS 12 Each moved straight ahead; wherever the spirit would go, they went, without turning as they went. CEB 13 Regarding the creatures' forms: they looked like blazing coals, like torches. Fire darted about between the creatures and illuminated them, and lightning flashed from the fire. NRS 13 In the middle of the living creatures there was something that looked like burning coals of fire, like torches moving to and fro among the living creatures; the fire was bright, and lightning issued from the fire. CEB 14 The creatures looked like lightning streaking back and forth. NRS 14 The living creatures darted to and fro, like a flash of lightning. CEB 15 As I looked at the creatures, suddenly there was a wheel on the earth corresponding to all four faces of the creatures. NRS 15 As I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, one for each of the four of them. CEB 16 The appearance and composition of the wheels were like sparkling topaz. There was one shape for all four of them, as if one wheel were inside another. NRS 16 As for the appearance of the wheels and their construction: their appearance was like the gleaming of beryl; and the four had the same form, their construction being something like a wheel within a wheel. CEB 17 When they moved in any of the four directions, they moved without swerving. NRS 17 When they moved, they moved in any of the four directions without veering as they moved. CEB 18 Their rims were tall and terrifying, because all four of them were filled with eyes all around. NRS 18 Their rims were tall and awesome, for the rims of all four were full of eyes all around. CEB 19 When the creatures moved, the wheels moved next to them. Whenever the creatures rose above the earth, the wheels also rose up. NRS 19 When the living creatures moved, the wheels moved beside them; and when the living creatures rose from the earth, the wheels rose. CEB 20 Wherever the wind would appear to go, the wind would make them go there too. The wheels rose up beside them, because the spirit of the creatures was in the wheels. NRS 20 Wherever the spirit would go, they went, and the wheels rose along with them; for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. CEB 21 When they moved, the wheels moved; when they stood still, the wheels stood still; and when they rose above the earth, the wheels rose up along with them, because the spirit of the creatures was in the wheels. NRS 21 When they moved, the others moved; when they stopped, the others stopped; and when they rose from the earth, the wheels rose along with them; for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. CEB 22 The shape above the heads of the creatures was a dome; it was like glittering ice stretched out over their heads. NRS 22 Over the heads of the living creatures there was something like a dome, shining like crystal, spread out above their heads. CEB 23 Just below the dome, their outstretched wings touched each other. They each also had two wings to cover their bodies. NRS 23 Under the dome their wings were stretched out straight, one toward another; and each of the creatures had two wings covering its body. CEB 24 Then I heard the sound of their wings when they moved forward. It was like the sound of mighty waters, like the sound of the Almighty, like the sound of tumult or the sound of an army camp. When they stood still, their wings came to rest. NRS 24 When they moved, I heard the sound of their wings like the sound of mighty waters, like the thunder of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of an army; when they stopped, they let down their wings. CEB 25 Then there was a sound from above the dome over their heads. They stood still, and their wings came to rest. NRS 25 And there came a voice from above the dome over their heads; when they stopped, they let down their wings. CEB 26 Above the dome over their heads, there appeared something like lapis lazuli in the form of a throne. Above the form of the throne there was a form that looked like a human being. NRS 26 And above the dome over their heads there was something like a throne, in appearance like sapphire; and seated above the likeness of a throne was something that seemed like a human form. CEB 27 Above what looked like his waist, I saw something like gleaming amber, something like fire enclosing it all around. Below what looked like his waist, I saw something that appeared to be fire. Its brightness shone all around. NRS 27 Upward from what appeared like the loins I saw something like gleaming amber, something that looked like fire enclosed all around; and downward from what looked like the loins I saw something that looked like fire, and there was a splendor all around. CEB 28 Just as a rainbow lights up a cloud on a rainy day, so its brightness shone all around. This was how the form of the LORD's glory appeared. When I saw it, I fell on my face. I heard the sound of someone speaking. NRS 28 Like the bow in a cloud on a rainy day, such was the appearance of the splendor all around. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. When I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard the voice of someone speaking.
