Over the heads of the living beings was something like a platform, glittering awesomely like ice, stretched out over their heads.

Above the platform over their heads was something like a sapphire shaped like a throne. High above on the throne was a form that appeared to be a man. I saw an amber glow like a fire enclosed all around from his waist up. From his waist down I saw something that looked like fire. There was a brilliant light around it, like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds after the rain. This was the appearance of the surrounding brilliant light; it looked like the glory of the Lord. When I saw it, I threw myself face down, and I heard a voice speaking.

Then the glory of the Lord arose from the cherub and moved to the threshold of the temple. The temple was filled with the cloud while the court was filled with the brightness of the Lord's glory.

Then the glory of the Lord moved away from the threshold of the temple and stopped above the cherubim.

These were the living creatures which I saw at the Kebar River underneath the God of Israel; I knew that they were cherubim.


When he drove the man out, he placed on the eastern side of the orchard in Eden angelic sentries who used the flame of a whirling sword to guard the way to the tree of life.

These were the living creatures which I saw at the Kebar River underneath the God of Israel; I knew that they were cherubim.

The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard from the outer court, like the sound of the sovereign God when he speaks.

Then the cherubim spread their wings with their wheels alongside them while the glory of the God of Israel hovered above them.


In the thirtieth year, on the fifth day of the fourth month, while I was among the exiles at the Kebar River, the heavens opened and I saw a divine vision.

The cherubim rose up; these were the living beings I saw at the Kebar River.

These were the living creatures which I saw at the Kebar River underneath the God of Israel; I knew that they were cherubim.
