So [were] their faces; their wings [were] spread out {upward}; each [had] two touching one another and two covering their bodies. And each {went straight forward}; {wherever the spirit went} they went, [and] {they did not turn as they went}.

Their appearance {was the same for each of the four of them}, as if the wheel was in the midst of a wheel. {When they went} to the four of their directions [that] they went, they did not change direction {when they went}, for the place [to] which the head turned, they went behind him; they did not change direction at their going. And {their whole body}, and their rims, and their spokes, and their wings, and the wheels [were] full of eyes [all] around--{the wheels for the four of them}. Concerning the wheels, he [was] calling them "the wheelwork" {in my hearing}. And {each one had four faces}; the face of the one [was] the face of a cherub, and the face of the second [was the] face of a human, and the face of the third [was the] face of a lion, and the fourth [was the] face of an eagle. And the cherubim rose; that is, the living creatures that I saw at the {Kebar River}. And {when the cherubim went}, the wheels beside them went; and {when the cherubim lifted their wings to rise up from the earth}, the wheels also did not turn aside from beside them. {When they stood}, they stood, and at their rising, they rose with them, for the spirit of the living creatures [was] in them.

At their going out, the wheels [were] beside them. And he stood [at] the doorway of the eastern gate of the temple of Yahweh, and the glory of the God of Israel {was over them}. This [was] the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel at the {Kebar River}, and I knew that they [were] cherubim. {Each one had four faces}, and [there were] four wings for each, and [the] likeness of {human hands} [was] under their wings. And the likeness of their faces, they [were] the faces that I saw at the {Kebar River}; [thus was] their appearance, and they each went {straight ahead}.
