King James Version

Ezekiel 1:1-28

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.1.1 captives: Heb. captivity 2In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin’s captivity, 3The 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.1.3 Ezekiel: Heb. Jehezkel

4¶ 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.1.4 infolding…: Heb. catching itself 5Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. 6And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings. 7And 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.1.7 straight…: Heb. a straight foot 8And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings. 9Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward. 10As 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. 11Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.1.11 stretched…: or, divided above 12And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went. 13As 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. 14And 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. 16The 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. 17When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went. 18As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.1.18 and their rings: or, and their strakes 19And 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. 20Whithersoever 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.1.20 of…: or, of life 21When 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.1.21 of…: or, of life 22And 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. 23And 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. 24And 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. 25And 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. 27And 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. 28As 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.

Ezeekyeri 1:1-28

Ebintu Ebiramu n’Ekitiibwa kya Mukama

11:1 a Ez 11:24-25 b Mat 3:16; Bik 7:56 c Kuv 24:10Awo mu mwaka ogw’amakumi asatu mu mwezi ogwokuna ku lunaku olwokutaano mu mwezi ogwo, bwe nnali nga ndi mu buwaŋŋanguse ku mabbali g’omugga Kebali, eggulu ne libikkulwa, ne ndaba okwolesebwa okuva eri Katonda. 21:2 2Bk 24:15Ku lunaku olwokutaano mu mwezi ogwo, gwe gwali omwaka ogwokutaano ogw’obuwaŋŋanguse bwa kabaka Yekoyakini, 31:3 2Bk 3:15; Ez 3:14, 22ekigambo kya Mukama ne kinzijjira, nze Ezeekyeri kabona, mutabani wa Buuzi, mu nsi ey’Abakaludaaya ku mabbali g’omugga Kebali, n’omukono gwa Mukama gwali ku ye.

41:4 a Yer 1:14 b Ez 8:2Awo ne ntunula ne ndaba kibuyaga ng’ava mu bukiikakkono, n’ekire ekikutte ekimyansa ekyamwetooloola, wakati nga wafaanana ng’awali ekyuma ekimasamasa. 51:5 a Kub 4:6 b nny 26Wakati mu muliro mwalabika ng’omwali ebiramu ebina, nga birina ekifaananyi ky’omuntu. 61:6 Ez 10:14Buli kimu kyalina obwenyi buna, n’ebiwaawaatiro bina. 71:7 Dan 10:6; Kub 1:15Amagulu gaabyo gaali magolokofu, n’ebigere byabyo nga bifaanana ekigere ky’ennyana, era nga bitangalijja ng’ekikomo ekizigule. 81:8 Ez 10:8Byalina engalo ez’omuntu wansi w’ebiwaawaatiro byabyo ku njuyi zaabyo ennya. Byonna ebina byalina obwenyi n’ebiwaawaatiro, 91:9 Ez 10:22era ebiwaawaatiro byabyo nga bisonga waggulu, buli kiwaawaatiro nga kikoona ku kinnaakyo. Buli kimu kyatambula nga kiraga mu maaso, nga tekikyuse kutunula mabega.

101:10 Ez 10:14; Kub 4:7Obwenyi bwabyo bwafaanana bwe buti: Buli kimu kyalina ekyenyi eky’omuntu, oluuyi olwa ddyo olwa buli kyenyi nga lufaanana ekyenyi eky’empologoma, n’oluuyi olwa kkono ku buli kyenyi nga lufaanana ekyenyi eky’ente, ate nga birina n’ekyenyi ky’emunyungu. 111:11 Is 6:2Ebyenyi byabyo n’ebiwaawaatiro byabyo byali byanjuluze nga bitunudde waggulu. Buli kimu kyalina ebiwaawaatiro bibiri, buli kiwaawaatiro nga kikona ku kinnaakyo, ebibiri ebirala nga bibisse ku mibiri gyabyo. 12Buli kimu kyali kitunudde gye kyali kiraga. Omwoyo gye yalaganga nabyo gye byalaganga, ne bitakyuka kudda mabega. 131:13 Kub 4:5Endabika ey’ebiramu ebyo yafaanana ng’omuliro ogwaka ogw’amanda oba omuliro ogw’omumuli. Omuliro gwavanga mu maaso n’emabega, nga gwakaayaakana era nga gumyansa. 141:14 Zab 29:7Ebiramu byetawulanga ng’okumyansa okw’eggulu.

15Bwe nnali nga nkyali ku ebyo, ne ndaba zinnamuziga ku ttaka emabbali wa buli kiramu, n’ebyenyi byabyo ebina. 161:16 Ez 10:9-11; Dan 10:6Endabika eya zinnamuziga n’okukolebwa kwazo kwali nga berulo,1:16 Berulo ejjinja ery’omuwendo zonna nga zifaanana. Buli emu yafaanana nga nnamuziga ekwataganye ne ginnaayo. 171:17 nny 9Era zeetoolooleranga mu njuyi zonna ennya, nga tezizinaazina ng’ebiramu bitambula. 181:18 Ez 10:12; Kub 4:6Empanka zaazo zaali mpanvu nga zitiisa, era empanka ennya zonna nga zijjuddemu amaaso.

19Ebiramu bwe byaseeseetukanga, zinnamuziga zaabyo nazo ne ziseeseetuka; ebiramu bwe byagolokokanga okuva mu ttaka zinnamuziga nazo ne zigolokoka. 201:20 nny 12Omwoyo buli gye yabanga agenda, gye byagendanga, ne zinnamuziga ne zisitukira wamu nazo, kubanga omwoyo eyali mu biramu ye yabanga ne mu zinnamuziga. 211:21 Ez 10:17Ebiramu bwe byaseeseetukanga, nazo ne ziseeseetuka, ebiramu bwe byasitukanga, nazo ne zisituka; ebiramu bwe byagolokokanga okuva ku ttaka, ne zinnamuziga ne zigolokokera wamu nazo, kubanga omwoyo ow’ebiramu yabanga mu zinnamuziga.

221:22 Ez 10:1Waggulu w’emitwe gy’ebiramu waliwo ekifaananyi eky’ekifo ekigazi, ekyatemagananga ng’omuzira. 23Wansi w’ekifo ekyo ekigazi ebiwaawaatiro byabyo byali bigolole, nga bituukagana, buli kiramu nga kirina ebiwaawaatiro bibiri ebyabikkanga emibiri gyabyo. 241:24 a Ez 10:5; 43:2; Dan 10:6; Kub 1:15; 19:6 b 2Bk 7:6Ebiramu bwe byagenda, nawulira okuwuuma kw’ebiwaawaatiro byabyo, ng’okuwuuma kw’amazzi amangi, ng’eddoboozi lya Ayinzabyonna, ng’oluyoogaano lw’eggye. Bwe byayimirira, ne bissa ebiwaawaatiro byabyo.

25Awo ne wawulikika eddoboozi okuva waggulu w’ekifo ekigazi waggulu w’emitwe gyabyo, bwe byayimiriranga nga bissizza ebiwaawaatiro byabyo. 261:26 a Kuv 24:10; Ez 10:1 b Kub 1:13Waggulu w’ekifo ekigazi waggulu w’emitwe gyabyo waaliwo ekyafaanananga entebe ey’obwakabaka, eya safiro, ate waggulu w’ekifaananyi eky’entebe ey’obwakabaka nga watuddeyo eyafaanana ng’omuntu. 271:27 Ez 8:2Ekyo nakirabira ku kyafaanana ng’ekiwato kye, okwambuka ng’afaanana ng’ekyuma ekyengeredde, nga kiriko omuliro mungi; n’okuva mu kiwato kye okukka ng’afaanana omuliro, nga yeetooloddwa okumasamasa enjuuyi zonna. 281:28 a Lub 9:13; Kub 10:1 b Kub 4:2 c Ez 8:4 d Ez 3:23; Dan 8:17; Kub 1:17Ekitiibwa ekyamwetooloolanga kyafaanana nga musoke mu bire ku lunaku olw’enkuba. Ekyo kye kyali ekifaananyi eky’ekitiibwa kya Mukama.

Bwe nakiraba, ne nvuunama, ne mpulira eddoboozi ly’oyo eyali ayogera.
