Waiting by the river Chebar with some exiles, Ezekiel—son of a priest named Buzi—sees visions of God.
A stormy wind and a bright cloud come out of the north. Four creatures are inside the cloud: they're somehow all human, but each has four faces. One face is human, and the other three are those of an ox, a lion, and an eagle.
The creatures each have a pair of wings and the tips of each touch the tips of the creature next to them. They also have another pair of wings, covering their bodies.
In the middle of the creatures, there's what appear to be burning coals, which light up as the creatures dart around.
Wheels appear under each of the creatures, each wheel being like a "wheel within a wheel."
They look like beryl (a colorful stone) and can move in any of the four directions. The rims of the wheels are full of eyes
The spirit of the creatures moves the wheels.

Next, Ezekiel sees a dome above the creatures, and hears a sound like water surging or God's thunder or an army marching as they move.
Above the dome there's a throne the color of sapphire, and "something like" a human is seated on the throne. Above the loins the human-like being is the color of amber, and there's fire below the lions and all around the figure.
What exactly are loins, anyway?
A rainbow surrounds the being, whom Ezekiel identifies as "the likeness of the glory of the Lord."
