10 [a]Their faces were like this:(A) each of the four had a human face, and on the right the face of a lion, and on the left, the face of an ox, and each had the face of an eagle. 11 Such were their faces. Their wings were spread out above. On each one, two wings touched one another, and the other two wings covered the body.(B) 12 Each went straight ahead. Wherever the spirit would go, they went; they did not change direction when they moved.(C)Read full chapter
