Ezekiel 1:1-28
1. Now it came about in the thirtieth year, on the fifth day of the fourth month, while I was by the river Chebar among the exiles, the heavens were opened and I saw visions of God.
2. (On the fifth of the month in the fifth year of King Jehoiachin's exile,
3. the word of the LORD came expressly to Ezekiel the priest, son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and there the hand of the LORD came upon him.)
4. As I looked, behold, a storm wind was coming from the north, a great cloud with fire flashing forth continually and a bright light around it, and in its midst something like glowing metal in the midst of the fire.
5. Within it there were figures resembling four living beings. And this was their appearance: they had human form.
6. Each of them had four faces and four wings.
7. Their legs were straight and their feet were like a calf's hoof, and they gleamed like burnished bronze.
8. Under their wings on their four sides were human hands. As for the faces and wings of the four of them,
9. their wings touched one another; their faces did not turn when they moved, each went straight forward.
10. As for the form of their faces, each had the face of a man; all four had the face of a lion on the right and the face of a bull on the left, and all four had the face of an eagle.
11. Such were their faces. Their wings were spread out above; each had two touching another being, and two covering their bodies.
12. And each went straight forward; wherever the spirit was about to go, they would go, without turning as they went.
13. In the midst of the living beings there was something that looked like burning coals of fire, like torches darting back and forth among the living beings. The fire was bright, and lightning was flashing from the fire.
14. And the living beings ran to and fro like bolts of lightning.
15. Now as I looked at the living beings, behold, there was one wheel on the earth beside the living beings, for each of the four of them.
16. The appearance of the wheels and their workmanship was like sparkling beryl, and all four of them had the same form, their appearance and workmanship being as if one wheel were within another.
17. Whenever they moved, they moved in any of their four directions without turning as they moved.
18. As for their rims they were lofty and awesome, and the rims of all four of them were full of eyes round about.
19. Whenever the living beings moved, the wheels moved with them. And whenever the living beings rose from the earth, the wheels rose also.
20. Wherever the spirit was about to go, they would go in that direction. And the wheels rose close beside them; for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels.
21. Whenever those went, these went; and whenever those stood still, these stood still. And whenever those rose from the earth, the wheels rose close beside them; for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels.
22. Now over the heads of the living beings there was something like an expanse, like the awesome gleam of crystal, spread out over their heads.
23. Under the expanse their wings were stretched out straight, one toward the other; each one also had two wings covering its body on the one side and on the other.
24. I also heard the sound of their wings like the sound of abundant waters as they went, like the voice of the Almighty, a sound of tumult like the sound of an army camp; whenever they stood still, they dropped their wings.
25. And there came a voice from above the expanse that was over their heads; whenever they stood still, they dropped their wings.
26. Now above the expanse that was over their heads there was something resembling a throne, like lapis lazuli in appearance; and on that which resembled a throne, high up, was a figure with the appearance of a man.
27. Then I noticed from the appearance of His loins and upward something like glowing metal that looked like fire all around within it, and from the appearance of His loins and downward I saw something like fire; and there was a radiance around Him.
28. As the appearance of the rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the surrounding radiance. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell on my face and heard a voice speaking.

Ezekiel 2:1-10
1. Then He said to me, "Son of man, stand on your feet that I may speak with you!"
2. As He spoke to me the Spirit entered me and set me on my feet; and I heard Him speaking to me.
3. Then He said to me, "Son of man, I am sending you to the sons of Israel, to a rebellious people who have rebelled against Me; they and their fathers have transgressed against Me to this very day.
4. "I am sending you to them who are stubborn and obstinate children, and you shall say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD.'
5. "As for them, whether they listen or not--for they are a rebellious house--they will know that a prophet has been among them.
6. "And you, son of man, neither fear them nor fear their words, though thistles and thorns are with you and you sit on scorpions; neither fear their words nor be dismayed at their presence, for they are a rebellious house.
7. "But you shall speak My words to them whether they listen or not, for they are rebellious.
8. "Now you, son of man, listen to what I am speaking to you; do not be rebellious like that rebellious house. Open your mouth and eat what I am giving you."
9. Then I looked, and behold, a hand was extended to me; and lo, a scroll was in it.
10. When He spread it out before me, it was written on the front and back, and written on it were lamentations, mourning and woe.

Psalms 119:153-160
153. Look upon my affliction and rescue me, For I do not forget Your law.
154. Plead my cause and redeem me; Revive me according to Your word.
155. Salvation is far from the wicked, For they do not seek Your statutes.
156. Great are Your mercies, O LORD; Revive me according to Your ordinances.
157. Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, Yet I do not turn aside from Your testimonies.
158. I behold the treacherous and loathe them, Because they do not keep Your word.
159. Consider how I love Your precepts; Revive me, O LORD, according to Your lovingkindness.
160. The sum of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting.

Proverbs 28:12-12
12. When the righteous triumph, there is great glory, But when the wicked rise, men hide themselves.

Hebrews 1:1-14
1. God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways,
2. in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.
3. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
4. having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.
5. For to which of the angels did He ever say, "YOU ARE MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU"? And again, "I WILL BE A FATHER TO HIM AND HE SHALL BE A SON TO ME"?
6. And when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says, "AND LET ALL THE ANGELS OF GOD WORSHIP HIM."
7. And of the angels He says, "WHO MAKES HIS ANGELS WINDS, AND HIS MINISTERS A FLAME OF FIRE."
8. But of the Son He says, "YOUR THRONE, O GOD, IS FOREVER AND EVER, AND THE RIGHTEOUS SCEPTER IS THE SCEPTER OF HIS KINGDOM.
9. "YOU HAVE LOVED RIGHTEOUSNESS AND HATED LAWLESSNESS; THEREFORE GOD, YOUR GOD, HAS ANOINTED YOU WITH THE OIL OF GLADNESS ABOVE YOUR COMPANIONS."
10. And, "YOU, LORD, IN THE BEGINNING LAID THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH, AND THE HEAVENS ARE THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS;
11. THEY WILL PERISH, BUT YOU REMAIN; AND THEY ALL WILL BECOME OLD LIKE A GARMENT,
12. AND LIKE A MANTLE YOU WILL ROLL THEM UP; LIKE A GARMENT THEY WILL ALSO BE CHANGED. BUT YOU ARE THE SAME, AND YOUR YEARS WILL NOT COME TO AN END."
13. But to which of the angels has He ever said, "SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES A FOOTSTOOL FOR YOUR FEET"?
14. Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?
