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.

Ang Pulong Sang Dios

Ezekiel 1

Ang Una nga Palanan-awon ni Ezekiel

11-3 Ako si Ezekiel nga pari nga anak ni Buzi, kag isa ako sa mga ginbihag sa Babilonia. Isa ka adlaw, sang nagaestar ako sa higad sang Suba sang Kebar kaupod sang iban nga mga bihag, nag-abri ang langit kag gin-gamhan ako sang Ginoo, kag dayon ginpakitaan niya ako sang mga palanan-awon. Natabo ini sang ikalima nga adlaw sang ikaapat nga bulan sang ika-30 nga tuig.[a] Ikalima ini nga tuig sang pagkabihag kay Haring Jehoyakin.

Samtang nagatulok ako, may nakita ako nga bagyo nga halin sa aminhan. Nagapangilat halin sa madamol nga gal-om, gani nagsanag ang palibot. Ang kilat sa tunga sang gal-om nagasiga nga daw sa nagabadlak nga metal. May nakita man ako sa tunga sang gal-om nga apat ka buhi nga mga tinuga nga daw sa mga tawo, 6-8 pero ang kada isa sa ila may apat ka guya kag apat ka pakpak. Tadlong ang ila mga paa, kag ang ila mga tiil daw sa tiil sang torite nga baka kag nagaidlak pareho sang ginpahining nga saway. May ara sang kamot sang tawo sa idalom sang tagsa nila ka pakpak, kag ang ila mga pakpak nagatanduganay. Nagalupad sila sing dungan sa bisan diin nga direksyon, nga wala nagaliso-liso.

10 Amo ini ang hitsura sang ila mga guya: sa atubangan, hitsura sang tawo; sa tuo, hitsura sang leon; sa wala, hitsura sang turo nga baka; kag sa likod, hitsura sang agila. 11 Ang duha nila ka pakpak nagahumlad kag nagatanduganay, kag ang duha pa gid nila ka pakpak nagatabon sa ila mga lawas. 12 Nagalupad sila sing dungan sa bisan diin nga direksyon, nga wala nagaliso-liso. Kon diin sila dal-on sang espiritu[b] didto man sila nagakadto. 13 Ang ila hitsura pareho sang nagadabadaba nga mga baga, kag may nagalabay-labay sa ila tunga nga daw sa nagasiga nga sulo. Ini nga sulo tama kasanag, kag halin sa sini nga sulo may nagakirab nga kilat. 14 Ining buhi nga mga tinuga nagapakadto-pakari nga daw sa kilat.

15 Samtang nagatan-aw ako sa apat ka buhi nga mga tinuga, may nakita ako sa idalom[c] nila nga apat ka rueda—isa ka rueda sa tagsa sa ila. Kag ini nga mga rueda nagatungtong sa duta. 16 Amo ini ang hitsura sang mga rueda: nagaidlak ini pareho sang malahalon nga bato nga krisolito, kag palareho ang ila hitsura. Ang kada rueda may ara pa gid sang isa ka rueda nga nagasaang,[d] 17 gani makakadto ini kag ang buhi nga mga tinuga sa bisan diin nga direksyon nga indi na kinahanglan nga magliso pa. 18 Ang palibot sang kada rueda malapad kag makahaladlok, kay puno ini sang mga mata.

19 Kon maglakat gani ang buhi nga mga tinuga nagaupod man sa ila ang mga rueda, kag kon magpaibabaw gani sila, nagapaibabaw man ang mga rueda. 20 Ang espiritu sang buhi nga mga tinuga ara sa mga rueda. Gani kon diin magkadto ang espiritu, didto man nagakadto ang buhi nga mga tinuga kag ang mga rueda. 21 Kon maglakat gani ang buhi nga mga tinuga, nagaupod man sa ila ang mga rueda, kag kon magpundo gani sila, nagapundo man ang mga rueda. Kag kon magpaibabaw sila, nagapaibabaw man ang mga rueda, kay ang ila espiritu ara sa mga rueda.

22 May nagatabon sa ibabaw sang buhi nga mga tinuga nga daw sa mga kristal nga nagabadlak, kag makatilingala ini tan-awon. 23 Sa idalom sini nagahumlad ang duha ka pakpak sang kada buhi nga tinuga, kag nagatanduganay ang ila mga pakpak. Ang duha pa gid nila ka pakpak nagatabon sa ila mga lawas. 24 Kon maglakat gani ang buhi nga mga tinuga, ang gahod sang ila mga pakpak daw sa huganas sang tubig, ukon daw sa tingog sang Makagagahom nga Dios, ukon daw sa ginahod sang madamo nga mga soldado. Kag kon magpundo sila, ginakipot nila ang ila mga pakpak.

25 Samtang nagakipot ang ila mga pakpak, may tingog nga halin sa ibabaw sadtong nagatabon sa ila. 26 Kag may ara didto nga daw sa trono nga hinimo halin sa bato nga sapiro, kag may nagapungko sa sini nga trono nga daw sa tawo. 27 Halin sa iya hawak paibabaw, pareho siya sang nagabadlak nga metal nga daw sa nagasiga nga kalayo. Kag halin sa iya hawak paidalom, pareho siya sang nagadabadaba nga kalayo, kag napalibutan siya sang kasanag nga puwerte kasilaw. 28 Ang kasanag sa iya palibot daw sa balangaw sa panahon nga maulan.

Pareho sadto ang gamhanan nga presensya sang Ginoo. Pagkakita ko sadto nagluhod ako kag may nabatian ako nga tingog nga nagapakighambal sa akon.
