以西結書 1:1-28

以西結的異象

1第三十年四月五日,我正在迦巴魯河畔被擄的人當中,忽然天開了,我看見了上帝的異象。 2那是約雅斤王被擄第五年的四月五日, 3就在迦勒底人境內的迦巴魯河畔,耶和華的話特別傳給了布西的兒子以西結祭司,耶和華的能力1·3 能力」希伯來文是「手」。降在他身上。

4在異象中,我看見一陣狂風從北方颳來,隨後有一大朵雲閃耀著火光,四周環繞著燦爛的光芒,火的中心像發光的金屬。 5火中有四個像人形的活物, 6每個活物有四張不同的面孔和四個翅膀。 7他們的腿是直的,腳如同牛犢的蹄,都亮如磨光的銅。 8四面的翅膀下都有人的手,四個活物都有臉和翅膀, 9翅膀彼此相連。他們移動時不必轉身,各朝前面移動。 10四個活物的面孔是這樣的:正面是人的臉,右面是獅子的臉,左面是牛的臉,後面是鷹的臉。 11他們的翅膀向上展開,每個活物的一對翅膀與其他活物的翅膀相連,另外一對翅膀遮蔽身體。 12耶和華的靈往哪裡去,他們也往哪裡去,移動時不用轉身。 13四個活物的形像如燃燒的火炭,又像火把。活物之間有火上下移動,發出耀眼的閃電。 14這些活物像閃電一樣往來飛馳。

15當我觀看這些活物的時候,發現每個活物旁邊的地上都有一個輪子。 16四個輪子的形狀和結構都一樣,好像輪套輪,如同閃耀的綠寶石。 17他們可以向四面移動,移動時輪子不必轉向。 18輪圈高而可畏,周圍佈滿了眼睛。 19活物行走,輪子也在旁邊行走;活物上升,輪子也上升。 20靈往哪裡去,活物也往哪裡去,輪子也跟著往哪裡去,因為活物的靈在輪子裡。 21活物行走,輪子也行走;活物站立不動,輪子也站立不動;活物上升,輪子也跟著上升,因為活物的靈在輪子裡。

22活物的頭上好像鋪展著茫茫的穹蒼,如同頂著耀眼的水晶。 23穹蒼下四個活物伸展翅膀,彼此相對,各用兩個翅膀遮蔽身體。 24他們移動時,翅膀發出的響聲如洪濤之聲,既像全能者的聲音,又像軍隊的呐喊。活物站住的時候,便將翅膀垂下。 25他們站立垂下翅膀時,有聲音從他們頭頂的穹蒼之上傳來。

26在他們頭頂的穹蒼之上彷彿有藍寶石的寶座,有一位形狀像人的高高坐在寶座上。 27我看到祂的腰部以上好像燒紅發亮的金屬,好像有火四面環繞。腰部以下如同火焰。祂周圍有耀眼的光輝, 28彷彿雨天雲中的彩虹。

這是耶和華榮耀的形像。我一看見,便俯伏在地,隨後聽見有說話的聲音。

King James Version

Ezekiel 1

1Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin's captivity,

The word of the Lord came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the Lord was there upon him.

And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.

And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.

And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.

And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.

Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.

10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.

11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.

12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.

13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.

14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.

15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.

16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned 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 four.

19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.

20 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above.

23 And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one had two, which covered 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 Almighty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.

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

26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.

28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. And when I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.
