Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.


And that likeness put forth his hand and took me by the locks of my head; and the Spirit lifted me up between the heaven and the earth and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looks toward the north where the habitation of the image of jealousy was, which provokes to jealousy.



And the Spirit lifted me up and brought me through the east gate of the LORD's house, which looks eastward; and behold at the entrance of the gate twenty-five men; among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azur and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people.

And the hand of the LORD was upon me and took me out in the Spirit of the LORD and set me down in the midst of a field which was full of bones, and caused me to pass by them round about; and, behold, there were very many upon the face of the field; and they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. read more.
Then he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones hear the word of the LORD. Thus hath the Lord GOD said unto these bones: Behold, I will cause spirit to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay nerves upon you and will bring up flesh upon you and cover you with skin and put spirit in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. So I prophesied as I was commanded, and as I prophesied, there was a thunder, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And I beheld, and behold nerves upon them and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no spirit in them. Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the spirit, prophesy, son of man, and say to the spirit, Thus hath the Lord GOD said: Come from the four winds, O spirit, and breathe upon these slain, and they shall live. And I prophesied as he commanded me, and the spirit entered into them, and they lived and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, and a great cloud, and a fire enfolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of man. And each one had four faces, and four wings. read more.
And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot; and they sparkled like the colour of highly burnished brass. And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and their faces and their wings on all four sides. With their wings they joined one to another; they did not return when they went; they went each one straight in the direction they were facing. And the likeness of their faces was human faces; and lion faces, on the right side; and they four had ox faces on the left side; likewise they four had eagle faces. Thus were their faces; and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of each one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies. And they went each one straight forward in the direction they were facing: wherever the Spirit directed them to go, they went; and they did not return when they went. As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire and like the appearance of lit torches; the fire went up and down among the living creatures and the brightness of the fire; and out of the fire went forth lightning. And the living creatures ran and turned as the appearance of lightnings.

And I saw, and behold a likeness as the appearance of fire; from the appearance of his loins downward was fire; and from his loins upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber. And that likeness put forth his hand and took me by the locks of my head; and the Spirit lifted me up between the heaven and the earth and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looks toward the north where the habitation of the image of jealousy was, which provokes to jealousy.

Then he said unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up my eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry. He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel commits here to cause me to go far away from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations. And he brought me to the entrance of the court, and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall. Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall; and when I had dug in the wall, behold a door. And he said unto me, Go in and see the wicked abominations that they do here. So I went in and saw; and behold every form of serpent and beasts; the abomination and all the idols of the house of Israel portrayed upon the wall round about. And there stood before them seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, each man with his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up. Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, each man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The LORD does not see us; the LORD has forsaken the earth. He also said unto me: Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do. Then he brought me to the entrance of the door of the LORD's house which is toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
