And he sent forth the likeness of a hand, and he took me by a lock of my head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and between the heavens, and it brought me to Jerusalem in the visions of God, to the door of the gate within, looking to the north; where was there the seat of the image of jealousy possessing And behold there the glory of the God of Israel as the vision which I saw in the valley.
And the spirit lifted me up, and it will bring me to Chaldea to the captivity, in a vision by the spirit of God. And the vision which I saw will go up from me.
The hand of Jehovah was upon me, and he will bring me forth in the spirit of Jehovah, and he will set me down in the midst of the valley; and it was filled with bones. And he caused me to pass over them round about, round about: and behold, exceeding many upon the face of the valley; and behold, exceedingly dry. And he will say to me, Son of man, shall these bones live? And saying, Thou Lord Jehovah knoweth. read more.
And he will say to me, Prophesy over these bones, and say to them, Ye dry bones, hear the word of Jehovah. Thus said the Lord Jehovah to these bones: Behold, I bring upon you the spirit, and ye lived. And I gave sinews upon you, and I brought up flesh upon you, and I drew skin over you, and I gave spirit in you, and ye lived; and ye shall know that I am Jehovah. And I prophesied as I was commanded: and there will be a voice as I prophesied, and behold a shaking, the bones will draw near, bone to his bone. And I saw and behold, upon them sinews and flesh came up, and the skin will draw over them from above: and no spirit in them. And he will say to me, prophesy to the spirit, prophesy, son of man, and say to the spirit, thus said the Lord Jehovah: Come from the four winds, O wind and blow upon these slain, and they shall live. And I prophesied as he commanded me, and the spirit will come upon them and they will live, and they will stand upon their feet, an army great, exceedingly, exceedingly.
And I shall see, and behold, the spirit of a tempest came from the north, a great cloud, and a fire taking itself, and a shining to it round about, and from its midst as the appearance of burnished brass from the midst of the fire. And from its midst the likeness of four living creatures: and this their vision; and the likeness of a man to them. And four faces to one, and four wings to one, to them. read more.
And their feet a straight foot; and the sole of their feet as the sole of a calf's foot; and sparkling as the appearance of polished brass. And his hand of a man from under their wings upon their four sides; and their faces and their wings to these four. And their wings joined every one to the other; they will not turn in their going, they will go each over against his face. And the likeness of their face, the face of a man and the face of a lion, to the right, to these four: and the face of an ox from the left to these four; and the face of an eagle to these four. And their faces: and their wings spread out from above; to each of the two being joined each, and two covering their bodies. And they will go each over against his face; to where the spirit will be there to go, they will go; they will not turn in their going. And the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance as burning coals of fire, as the appearance of flames going about between the living creatures; and a shining to the fire, and from the fire will go forth lightning. And the living creatures ran and turned back as the appearance of lightning.
And I saw, and behold, a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins and downward, tire; and from his loins and upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the appearance of burnished brass. And he sent forth the likeness of a hand, and he took me by a lock of my head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and between the heavens, and it brought me to Jerusalem in the visions of God, to the door of the gate within, looking to the north; where was there the seat of the image of jealousy possessing And behold there the glory of the God of Israel as the vision which I saw in the valley. read more.
And he said to me, Son of man, lift up now thine eyes the way of the north. And I lifter up mine eyes the way of the north, and behold, from the north at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entrance. And he said to me, Son of man, west thou what they are doing, the great abominations which the house of Israel are doing here, to go far off from my holy place? And thou shalt yet turn back, thou shalt see great abominations. And he brought me to the door of the enclosure, and I saw, and behold, one hole in the wall. And he said to me, Son of man, break thou now, into the wall: and I broke through into the wall, and behold, one door. And he said to me, Come and see the evil abominations which they are doing here. And I came and saw, and behold, every form of creeping thing, and beast of abomination, and all the blocks of the house of Israel, delineated upon the wall round about, round about And seventy men from the old men of the house of Israel, and Jaazaniah, son of Shaphan, stood in the midst of them, standing before them, and each his censer in his hand; and a rich cloud of incense went up. And he said to me, Sawest, thou son of man, what the old men of the house of Israel are doing in darkness, a man in the chambers of his images? for they are saying, Jehovah sees us not; Jehovah forsook the earth. And he said to me, Thou shalt turn back yet; thou shalt see great abominations which they are doing. And he brought me to the door of the gate of the house of Jehovah which was to, the north; and behold, there women sat weeping for Tammuz.
