The vision of the coals of fire, to be scattered over the city.
Ezekiel 10:1 And as I loked, beholde, in the firmament that was aboue the Cherubins there appeared the symilitude of a stole of Saphyr vpon them: Ezekiel 10:2 Then sayde he that sat therin, to him that had the lynen rayment vpon hym: Crepe in betwene the wheles that are vnder the Cherubyns, and take thyne hande full of hoate coales out from betwene the Cherubyns, and cast them ouer þe cytie. And he crepte in, that I myght se. Ezekiel 10:3 Now the Cherubyns stode vpon the ryght syde of the house, when the man wente in, & the cloude fylled the inner courte. Ezekiel 10:4 But the glory of the Lorde remoued from the Cherubyns, and came vpon the thresholde of the house: so that the temple was full of cloudes, and the courte was full of the shyne of the Lordes glory. Ezekiel 10:5 Yee, and the sounde of the Cherubyns wynges was hearde into the fore courte, lyke as it had bene the voyce of the almyghtye God, when he speaketh. Ezekiel 10:6 Nowe when he had byden the man that was clothed in lynen, to go and take the hoate coales from the myddest of the wheles, whych were vnder the Cherubyns: he wente & stode besyde the wheles. Ezekiel 10:7 Then þe one Cherub reached forth hys hande from vnder the Cherubyns, vnto the fyre that was betwene the Cherubyns, and toke therof, and gaue it vnto hym that had on the lynen rayment in his hande: which toke it, & went out.
The vision of the cherubims.
Ezekiel 10:8 And vnder the wynges of the Cherubyns, there appeared the lycknesse of a mans hande: Ezekiel 10:9 I sawe also foure wheles besyde the Cherubyns, so þt by euery cherub there stode a whele. And the wheles were (to loke vpon) after the fashion of the precyous stone of Tharsys: Ezekiel 10:10 yet (vnto the syght) they were all .iiij. of one fashyon, as yf one whele had bene in another. Ezekiel 10:11 When they wente forth, they wente all foure together, not turnynge aboute in their goinge: But where the fyrst wente, thyther wente they after also, so that they turned not aboute in their goyng. Ezekiel 10:12 Their whole bodyes, their backes, theyr handes & wynges, yee, and the wheles also, were all full of eyes rounde aboute them all foure. Ezekiel 10:13 And I hearde hym call the wheles. Ezekiel 10:14 Euery one of them had foure faces: so that the one face was the face of a Cherub, the seconde of a man, the thyrde of a lyon, the fourth of an Aegle, Ezekiel 10:15 & they were lyfted vp aboue. This is the beast, that I sawe at the water of Cobar. Ezekiel 10:16 Nowe when the Cherubyns wente, the wheles wente wyth them, and when the Cherubyns shoke theyr wynges to lyft them selues vpwarde, þe wheles remayned not behynde, but were wyth them also. Ezekiel 10:17 Shortly, when they stode, these stode also. And when they were lyft vp, the wheles were lyft vp also with them, for the sprete of lyfe was in the wheles. Ezekiel 10:18 Then the glory of the Lorde was lyft vp from the thresholde of the temple, and remayned vpon the Cherubyns: Ezekiel 10:19 And the Cherubyns flackred wyth theyr wynges, and lyfte them selues vp from the earth: so that I sawe when they went, and the wheles wt them. And they stode at the east syde of the porte that is in the house of the Lorde. So the glory of the Lorde was vpon them. Ezekiel 10:20 Thys is the beast þt I sawe vnder the God of Israel, by the water of Cobar. And I perceaued, that it was the Cherubyns. Ezekiel 10:21 Euery one had foure faces, & euery one foure wynges, and vnder theyr wynges, as it were mens handes. Ezekiel 10:22 Nowe the fygure of theyr faces was, euen as I had sene them, by the water of Cobar, and so was the countenaunce of them: Euery one in hys goinge wente strayght forwarde.
