The Lord their God will save them on that day
as the flock of His people;
for they are like jewels in a crown,
sparkling over His land.
Don’t gaze at wine because it is red,
when it gleams in the cup
and goes down smoothly.
From what seemed to be His waist up, I saw a gleam like amber, with what looked like fire enclosing it all around. From what seemed to be His waist down, I also saw what looked like fire. There was a brilliant light all around Him.
I looked, and there were four wheels beside the cherubim, one wheel beside each cherub. The luster of the wheels was like the gleam of beryl.
Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the hooves of a calf, sparkling like the gleam of polished bronze.
I have appointed a sword for slaughter
at all their gates,
so that their hearts may melt
and many may stumble.
Yes! It is ready to flash like lightning;
it is drawn for slaughter.
“Now prophesy, son of man, and say: This is what the Lord God says concerning the Ammonites and their contempt. You are to proclaim:A sword! A sword
is drawn for slaughter,
polished to consume, to flash like lightning.
“Son of man, prophesy: This is what the Lord says! You are to proclaim:A sword! A sword is sharpened
and also polished.
The sword is given to be polished,
to be grasped in the hand.
It is sharpened, and it is polished,
to be put in the hand of the slayer.
It is sharpened for slaughter,
polished to flash like lightning!
Should we rejoice?
The scepter of My son,
the sword despises every tree.
His body was like topaz, his face like the brilliance of lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and feet like the gleam of polished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a multitude.
heaps of slain,
mounds of corpses,
dead bodies without end—
they stumble over their dead.
The chariots dash madly through the streets;
they rush around in the plazas.
They look like torches;
they dart back and forth like lightning.
The shields of his warriors are dyed red;
the valiant men are dressed in scarlet.
The fittings of the chariot flash like fire
on the day of its battle preparations,
and the spears are brandished.
His brilliance is like light;
rays are flashing from His hand.
This is where His power is hidden.
Sun and moon stand still in their lofty residence,
at the flash of Your flying arrows,
at the brightness of Your shining spear.
In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
As He was praying, the appearance of His face changed, and His clothes became dazzling white.
For as the lightning flashes from horizon to horizon and lights up the sky, so the Son of Man will be in His day.
When a servant saw him sitting in the firelight, and looked closely at him, she said, “This man was with Him too.”
While they were perplexed about this, suddenly two men stood by them in dazzling clothes.
Cornelius replied, “Four days ago at this hour, at three in the afternoon, I was praying in my house. Just then a man in a dazzling robe stood before me
He had seven stars in His right hand; a sharp double-edged sword came from His mouth, and His face was shining like the sun at midday.
I will make your fortifications out of rubies,
your gates out of sparkling stones,
and all your walls out of precious stones.
The appearance of the wheels and their craftsmanship was like the gleam of beryl, and all four had the same form. Their appearance and craftsmanship was like a wheel within a wheel.
