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.

When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they did not return when they went. And their ribs were high and dreadful, and full of eyes round about them in all four. And when the living creatures went, the wheels went with them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. Wherever the spirit wished to go, they went; wherever the spirit directed them, the wheels also rose up after them: for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up after them: for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. And over the heads of each living creature there appeared a heaven like a marvellous crystal, stretched forth over their heads above. And under the heaven their wings were straight, one toward the other: each one had two, and another two which covered their bodies. And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of many waters, as the voice of the Almighty, when they went; the voice of the word, as the voice of an army. When they stood, they let down their wings. And there was heard a voice from the heaven that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.

When they stood still, these stood still; and when they lifted up themselves, these lifted up themselves also; for the spirit of the living creatures was in them.read more.

And the cherubim lifted up their wings and mounted up from the earth in my sight; when they went out, the wheels also were in front of them, and they stood at the entrance of the east gate of the LORD's house; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above. These were the living creatures that I saw under the God of Israel by the river of Chebar; and I knew that they were cherubim. Each one had four faces, and each one four wings; and the likeness of the hands of a man was under their wings. And the likeness of their faces was the same faces which I saw by the river of Chebar, their appearance and their being; each one went straight in the direction they were facing.
