1 I look [up, 😇]. Suddenly, on the [crystal] dome above the heads of the [gyroscope-riding] cherubim, [I see] a sapphire-like stone appear. [The stone] morphs into a throne!
2 Then, 😇, [YAH] addresses the linen-clothed angel-man. [YAH] says, “Go in between the gyro-wheels under that cherub. Fill your hand with the coals of fire [that shoot] between the cherubim. Scatter the [coals] over [Jerusalem] city.” Then the [angel-man vanishes] before my eyes.
3[Suddenly, 😇,] the gyro-cherubim stand on the right [south] side of [YHVH's] temple [in Jerusalem]. The angel-man enters [the temple]. A [supernatural] cloud fills the [temple's] inner court.
4 Then, 😇, the glory of YHVH rises above the [gyro] cherub[s]. [The glory comes] to stand at the [upper] threshold of the temple. The temple fills with [YAH's] cloud. The courtyard fills with the [infinite] brightness of YHVH's glory.
5 The rush of the cherubims' wings sounds all the way to the outer courtyard, 😇. [Their wings roar] like the voice of the Almighty Eloah[YHVH] when he speaks.
6 As soon as [YAH] commands the linen-clothed man, “Take [coals] from the fire [that shoots] between the gyroscope-cherubim,” the angel-man [flies] into [the temple]. He stands beside the [whirling] gyroscopes.
7 Then one gyro-cherub stretches out his hand between [his fellow] cherubim. He grabs the fire [arcing] between the cherubim. [He] puts [the fire] into the hands of the linen-clothed angel-man, who takes the fire, then rushes out [of the temple].
8 Then, 😇, under the gyro-cherubs' wings, the form of a human hand appears.
9 I gape, 😇. I see the four wheels joined to the cherubim, one wheel joined to [each] cherub. The wheels [shine with] the [transparent pale green, blue or yellow] colors of a beryl stone. Joined by energy-force, not by mechanics; electromagnetically or supernaturally linked.
10 All four gyroscopes look the same, 😇: a wheel within a wheel.
11 Then the gyro-cherubs rush off ahead in all 4 directions. They never veer off-course. They fly straight where their head[s] look. Translations of this verse differ wildly.
12 Then [I see] the entire bodies of the four [gyro-cherubs] (including their backs, hands, wings and gyroscopes) covered with the [same] eyes [I saw before on their outer] wheel-rims!
13 My ears ring with someone calling, “Whirling wheels!”
14 Now [I see that] each creature has 4 faces: the 1st face the face of a cherub, the 2nd the [face] of a man, the 3rd the face of a lion, and the 4th the face of an eagle.
15 The cherubim lift off [the ground, 😇,] just as I saw the same living-creatures [lift off] by [Babylon's] Chebar River.
16 As the cherubim fly, their gyro-wheels fly with them. As the cherubim lift up their wings to mount up above the earth, the gyroscopes stay right with them.
17 When the [cherubs] stand [still], the [gyroscopes] stand [still]. And when [YAH] lifts the [cherubs], the [gyros'] lift themselves too. For the spirit of the living creature[s] inhabits the [gyroscopes].
18 Then YHVH's glory [flies] off of the temple threshold. [YAH's shining splendor flies to] station above the gyro-cherubim.
19 Then the gyro-cherubim lift up their wings, 😇. They mount up from the earth. I watch [jaw-dropped] as they fly with their [mysteriously] attached wheels. The [gyro-angels] all pause at the entrance to the east gate of YHVH's temple. The glory of the Elohim of Israel [shines] over the [gyro-cherubs from] above.
20 I recognize the [composite] living creature[s][hovering] under the Elohim of Israel as the same cherubim I saw by the Chebar river.
21 Every [creature] has four faces apiece, and every one four wings. Appendages resembling man's hands [gleam] under their wings. Human hand = Adam Yad, literally ruddy (and presumably male) hand.
22 The [gyro-cherubs'] faces look just like the faces I saw by the Chebar river, 😇, identical in appearance. And again they rush straight forward [chasing YAH's spirit].
