(this is a scan from the exact, authentic, original 1611 'HE' King James Bible)

1 Now it came to passe in the thirtieth yeere, in the fourth moneth, in the fifth day of the moneth, (as I was among the captiues by the riuer of Chebar) that the heauens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

2 In the fifth day of the moneth, (which was the fifth yeere of king Iehoiakins captiuitie,)

3 The word of the Lord came expresly vnto Ezekiel the Priest, the sonne of Buzi, in the land of the Caldeans, by the riuer Chebar, and the hand of the Lord was there vpon him.

4 And I looked, and behold, a whirlewinde came out of the North, a great cloude, and a fire infoulding it selfe, and a brightnesse was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likenesse of foure liuing creatures, and this was their appearance: they had the likenesse of a man.

6 And euery one had foure faces, and euery one had foure wings.

7 And their feet were straight feet, and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calues foot, and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brasse.

8 And they had the handes of a man vnder their wings on their foure sides, and they foure had their faces and their wings.

9 Their wings were ioyned one to another, they turned not when they went: they went euery one straight forward.

10 As for the likenesse of their faces, they foure had the face of a man, and the face of a lyon on the right side, and they foure had the face of an oxe on the left side: they foure also had the face of an eagle.

11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched vpward, two wings of euery one were ioyned one to an other, and two couered their bodies.

12 And they went euery one straight forward: whither the spirit was to goe, they went: and they turned not when they went.

13 As for the likenesse of the liuing creatures, their appearance was like burning coles of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went vp and downe among the liuing creatures, and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went foorth lightning.

14 And the liuing creatures ranne, and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.

15 Now as I behelde the liuing creatures: behold one wheele vpon the earth by the liuing creatures, with his foure faces.

16 The appearance of the wheeles, and their worke was like vnto the colour of a Berill: and they foure had one likenesse, and their appearance and their worke was as it were a wheele in the middle of a wheele.

17 When they went, they went vpon their foure sides: and they returned not when they went.

18 As for their rings, they were so high, that they were dreadful, and their rings were full of eyes round about them foure.

19 And when the liuing creatures went, the wheeles went by them: and when the liuing creatures were lift vp from the earth, the wheels were lift vp.

20 Whithersoeuer the spirit was to goe, they went, thither was their spirit to goe, and the wheeles were lifted vp ouer against them: for the spirit of the liuing creature was in the wheeles.

21 When those went, these went, and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted vp from the earth, the wheeles were lifted vp ouer against them: for the spirit of the liuing creature was in the wheeles.

22 And the likenesse of the firmament vpon the heads of the liuing creature was as the colour of the terrible chrystall, stretched foorth ouer their heads aboue.

23 And vnder the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other, euery one had two which couered on this side, & euery one had two, which couered on that side their bodies.

24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almightie, the voice of speech, as the noise of an hoste: when they stood, they let downe their wings.

25 And there was a voice from the firmament, that was ouer their heads, when they stood, and had let downe their wings.

26 And aboue the firmament that was ouer their heads, was the likenesse of a Throne, as the appearance of a Saphyre stone, and vpon the likenesse of the Throne was the likenesse as the appearance of a man aboue vpon it.

27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it: from the appearance of his loynes euen vpward, and from the appearance of his loynes euen downeward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, & it had brightnesse round about.

28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloude in the day of raine, so was the appearance of the brightnesse round about. This was the appearance of the likenesse of the glory of the Lord: and when I saw it, I fell vpon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

I sincerely believe that Ezekiel is looking at a flying machine of some sort ,maybe a helicopter. Definately not our Father.I have read this verse many times and still come to the same conclusion, no disrespect intended, Bob NZ

 


Mark Rasbury's Ezekiel Chapter 1 comment on 5/11/2014, 7:44am...

This chapter helps us see the Glory of the Lord. Ezekiel was given visions by God when Israel was taken into captivity. Ezekiel was full of hope while the rest of the exiles were in spiritual depression. Today, we can see the Glory of God in times like these as we face ever growing evil that is around us today in this country that we live in. Read Psalms 137 and compared it to the first chapter of Ezekiel, and you will see a greater contrast of faith that exists between Ezekiel and the rest of the people during that time.

 


Terry's Ezekiel Chapter 1 comment about verse 19 on 5/07/2014, 6:28pm...

I love reading the bible,but I do see similarities in Ezekiel, Revelations and Greek mythology. In which makes me and others believe their is a real connection.

 


Barbara Baute's Ezekiel Chapter 1 comment on 4/29/2014, 5:22pm...

Mable Carbin's Ezekiel Chapter 1 comment on 4/04/2014, 11:57pm...

Very hard for me to grasp what is going on I am not able to get an understanding of this at all

 


Willie's Ezekiel Chapter 1 comment on 4/01/2014, 12:55pm...

For someone who is newly into studying the word of God, this throws me off! When I read it, I see very dramatic visions and can respect and appreciate the awesomeness of God. Maybe that 's what this passage intended to do?!

 


Tom's Ezekiel Chapter 1 comment on 4/01/2014, 12:04pm...

This is all to do with the description of the Cherubim 5 through to 25 see also 10 8 22 They are like men in general bodily form, the only difference being in the feet, wings, number of hands, number and kind of faces, eyes, and a few other other points symbolism Much symbolism is made out of this plain, literal description of these angelic beings called "Cherubims " but such has no foundation in Scripture or any value in teaching the gospel or biblical doctrine. They do not represent the 4 gospels, different parts of creation, or the nature of man any more than other creatures described in Scripture. Just saying.

 


Nananator's Ezekiel Chapter 1 comment about verse 16 on 4/01/2014, 7:37am...

I also would like an explanation of this scripture. I have been trying to wrap my head around it and it just doesn 't come to me. God bless anyone who can tell me.
