Deep inside it, the likenesses of four living beings were visible. Their appearances were similar to human forms, except that they each had four faces, four pairs of wings, and straight legs. Their feet resembled calves' hooves, but they gleamed like polished bronze. read more.
From under their wings there were human hands on their four sides. Now as to their four faces and four pairs of wings, their pairs of wings overlapped each other. They moved in straight directions without turning their faces around as they moved. The form of their faces was human, but each of the four also had the face of a lion to the right, the face of an ox to the left, and the face of an eagle behind them. That's what their faces were like. Their wings spread out above and around them, one pair overlapping another, with one pair covering themselves. Each moved in straight directions. Wherever they decided to go, they went without turning themselves. Now, in the midst of the living beings there was something that appeared to glow like coals kindled by a fire, like torches that moved back and forth between the living beings. The fire was dazzling, and lightning flashed from the fire. The living beings moved around, in appearance resembling lightning. As I observed the living beings, I noticed one wheel on the earth beside each being that is, for the four of them. Their wheels and their construction details looked like gold-colored beryl. Each wheel was identical in form to the others, and they appeared to have been constructed and designed as if one wheel were within another. Whenever the four moved, no matter which of four directions, they moved without turning around. Their wheel rims were ornate and terrifying. They were full of eyes that surrounded the four of them. Whenever the living beings moved, the wheels moved, too. Whenever the living beings rose from the earth, the wheels rose also. Whatever direction these spirits went, the wheels would be lifted up along with them, because the wheels were alive. They moved around whenever they wanted to move around, and they stood still whenever they wanted to stand still; and whenever they rose from the earth, the wheels remained close beside them, because the wheels were also alive. There was spread out over the heads of the living beings what looked like a canopy, in outward appearance resembling ice, and underneath the canopy, their wings spread out straight over their heads toward each other. They each also had two wings with which they covered themselves, one wing covering its body on one side and one wing covering itself on the other side. I also heard the sound of their wings, like the sound of roaring water, like the voice of the Almighty, or like a boisterous crowd within an army camp. Whenever they stopped flying, they lowered their wings. A sound came from above the canopy that was spread out over their heads. Whenever they stood still, they lowered their wings.

Then a cherub stretched out his hand to the fire, which was among the cherubim, took some of the fire, and placed it in the hands of the one clothed in white linen, who took it and left. read more.
There appeared to be human hands under the wings of the cherubim. As I continued to watch, I observed four wheels beside the cherubim, one wheel beside each cherub. The wheels resembled beryl stone. In appearance, the four wheels looked like they consisted of a wheel within a wheel. Whenever they moved, they proceeded without turning around as they moved, but they followed in the direction where their head was facing, without looking around as they moved. Their entire bodies, backs, hands, and wings were filled with eyes around, including each of their four wheels. The wheels whose sound I was hearing were called "the whirling wheels". Each had four faces. The first one was the face of a cherub, the second the face of a man, the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle. The cherubim arose. These were the same beings that I had seen at the Chebar River. When the cherubim moved, the wheels went alongside them. But when the cherubim started to ascend, beating their wings to rise above the earth, the wheels beside them didn't turn. When they stood still, the wheels stood still. When they rose up, the wheels rose up, too, because they were alive. Then the glory of the LORD moved away from the threshold of the Temple and stood over the cherubim. The cherubim lifted their wings and rose above the earth while I watched. They went out, along with their wheels, and stood at the entrance to the east gate of the LORD's Temple as the glory of Israel's God remained above, covering them. These were the living beings that I had seen under the God of Israel on the bank of the Chebar River. I knew that they were cherubim. Each one had four faces. Each one had four wings, and the form of human hands could be seen under their wings. As to the likeness of their faces, they were like what I had seen on the bank of the Chebar River. They each moved straight ahead.
