and, he that was sitting, was like in appearance to a jasper stone and a sardius, and there was a rainbow round about the throne, like in appearance unto an emerald,
as the appearance of the bow which is in a cloud on a day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about, that was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Yahweh, and when I saw, I fell upon my face, and heard a voice of one speaking.
And I saw another, a mighty messenger, descending out of heaven, - arrayed with a cloud, and, the rainbow, was upon his head, and, his face, was as the sun, and, his feet, were as pillars of fire,
having the glory of God, - her lustre, like unto a stone most precious, as a jasper stone, shining as crystal;
My bow, have I set in the cloud, - and it shall be for a sign of a covenant, betwixt me and the earth;
In Eden the garden of God, thou wast. Of every precious stone, was thy covering-Sardius. topaz, and diamond, Chrysolite beryl, and jasper, Sapphire carbuncle and emerald,- And of gold, was the work of thy timbrels and thy flutes within thee, In the day thou wast created, were they prepared:
The foundations of the wall of the city, with every precious stone were adorned: the first foundation, was jasper, the second, sapphire, the third, chalcedony, the fourth, emerald,
and they saw the God of Israel, - and under his feet, like a pavement of sapphire, and like the very heavens for brightness; and
For, the waters of Noah, is this unto me, - As to which I sware that the waters of Noah should not again pass over the earth, So have I sworn Not to be vexed with thee Nor to rebuke thee.
And above the expanse that was over their heads, as the appearance of a sapphire stone, was the likeness of a throne, - and upon the likeness of a throne, was a likeness as the appearance of a man upon it above.
