26-1:2††††† In the fift day of the moneth (which was the fift yere of King Ioiachins captiuitie)

26-1:3††††† The word of the Lorde came vnto Ezekiel the Priest, the sonne of Buzi, in the lande of the Caldeans, by the riuer Chebar, where the hande of the Lord was vpon him.

26-1:7††††† And their feete were streight feete, and the sole of their feete was like the sole of a calues foote, and they sparkled like the appearance of bright brasse.

26-1:9††††† They where ioyned by their wings one to another, and when they went forth, they returned not, but euery one went streight forward.

26-1:10†††† And the similitude of their faces was as the face of a man: and they foure had the face of a lyon on the right side, and they foure had the face of a bullocke on the left side: they foure also had the face of an egle.

26-1:24†††† And when they went foorth, I heard the noyse of their wings, like the noyse of great waters, and as the voyce of the Almightie, euen the voyce of speach, as the noyse of an host: and when they stood, they let downe their wings.

26-1:25†††† And there was a voyce fro the firmament, that was ouer their heads, when they stoode, and had let downe their wings.

26-1:26†††† And aboue the firmament that was ouer their heads, was the facion of a throne like vnto a saphir stone, and vpon the similitude of the throne was by appearance, as the similitude of a man aboue vpon it.

26-1:28†††† As the likenesse of the bowe, that is in the cloude in the day of raine, so was the appearance of the light round about. This was the appearance of the similitude of the glorie of the Lord: and when I sawe it, I fell vpon my face, and I heard a voyce of one that spake.

26-3:21†††† Neuerthelesse, if thou admonish that righteous man, that the righteous sinne not, and that he doeth not sinne, he shall liue because he is admonished: also thou hast deliuered thy soule.

26-3:22†††† And the hande of the Lorde was there vpon me, and he said vnto me, Arise, and goe into the fielde, and I will there talke with thee.

26-3:23†††† So when I had risen vp, and gone foorth into the fielde, beholde, the glorie of the Lorde stoode there, as the glorie which I sawe by the riuer Chebar, and I fell downe vpon my face.
