The Book of the Prophet Ezekial   47: 1-9, 12

1:1 And it happened that, in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth of the month, when I was in the midst of the captives beside the river Chebar, the heavens were opened, and I saw the visions of God.
1:2 On the fifth of the month, the same is the fifth year of the transmigration of king Joachin,
1:3 the word of the Lord came to Ezekiel, a priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans, next to the river Chebar. And the hand of the Lord was over him there.
1:4 And I saw, and behold, a whirlwind arrived from the north. And a great cloud, wrapped in fire and brightness, was all around it. And from its midst, that is, from the midst of the fire, there was something with the appearance of amber.
1:5 And in its midst, there was the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: the likeness of a man was in them.
1:6 Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings.
1:7 Their feet were straight feet, and the sole of their foot was like the sole of the foot of a calf, and they sparkled with the appearance of glowing brass.
1:8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on the four sides. And they had faces with the wings on the four sides.
1:9 And their wings were joined to one another. They did not turn as they went. Instead, each one advanced before his face.
1:12 And each one of them advanced before his face. Wherever the impetus of the spirit was to go, there they went. And they did not turn as they advanced.
