“1 Now it came about in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, on the fifth day of the month, while I was by the river Chebar among those who had been made prisoners, that the heavens were made open and I saw visions of God. 2 On the fifth day of the month, in the fifth year after King Jehoiachin had been made a prisoner, 3 The word of the Lord came to me, Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldaeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the Lord was on me there. 4 And, looking, I saw a storm-wind coming out of the north, a great cloud with flames of fire coming after one another, and a bright light shining round about it and in the heart of it was something coloured like electrum. 5 And in the heart of it were the forms of four living beings. And this was what they were like; they had the form of a man. 6 And every one had four faces, and every one of them had four wings. 7 And their feet were straight feet; and the under sides of their feet were like the feet of oxen; and they were shining like polished brass. 8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings; the four of them had faces on their four sides. 9 They went without turning, every one went straight forward. 10 As for the form of their faces, they had the face of a man, and the four of them had the face of a lion on the right side, and the four of them had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four of them had the face of an eagle. 11 And their wings were separate at the top; two of the wings of every one were joined one to another, and two were covering their bodies. 12 Every one of them went straight forward; wherever the spirit was to go they went; they went on without turning. 13 And between the living beings it was like burning coals of fire, as if flames were going one after the other between the living beings; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went thunder-flames. 14 And the living beings went out and came back as quickly as a thunder-flame. 15 Now while I was looking at the four living beings, I saw one wheel on the earth, by the side of the living beings, for the four of them. 16 The form of the wheels and their work was like a beryl; the four of them had the same form and design, and they were like a wheel inside a wheel. 17 The four of them went straight forward without turning to one side. 18 And I saw that they had edges, and their edges, even of the four, were full of eyes round about. 19 And when the living beings went on, the wheels went by their side; and when the living beings were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. 20 Wherever the spirit was to go they went; and the wheels were lifted up by their side: for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels. 21 When these went on, the others went; and when these came to rest, the others came to rest; and when these were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up by their side: for the spirit of the living beings was in the wheels. 22 And over the heads of the living beings there was the form of an arch, looking like ice, stretched out over their heads on high. 23 Under the arch their wings were straight, one stretched out to another: every one had two wings covering their bodies on this side and two covering their bodies on that side. 24 And when they went, the sound of their wings was like the sound of great waters to my ears, like the voice of the Ruler of all, a sound like the rushing of an army: when they came to rest they let down their wings. 25 And there was a voice from the top of the arch which was over their heads: when they came to rest they let down their wings. 26 And on the top of the arch which was over their heads was the form of a king’s seat, like a sapphire stone; and on the form of the seat was the form of a man seated on it on high. 27 And I saw it coloured like electrum, with the look of fire in it and round it, going up from what seemed to be the middle of his body; and going down from what seemed to be the middle of his body I saw what was like fire, and there was a bright light shining round him. 28 Like the bow in the cloud on a day of rain, so was the light shining round him. And this is what the glory of the Lord was like. And when I saw it I went down on my face, and the voice of one talking came to my ears. 1 And he said to me, Son of man, get up on your feet, so that I may say words to you. 2 And at his words the spirit came into me and put me on my feet; and his voice came to my ears. 3 And he said to me, Son of man, I am sending you to the children of Israel, to an uncontrolled nation which has gone against me: they and their fathers have been sinners against me even to this very day. 4 And the children are hard and stiff-hearted; I am sending you to them: and you are to say to them, These are the words of the Lord. 5 And they, if they give ear to you or if they do not give ear (for they are an uncontrolled people), will see that there has been a prophet among them. 6 And you, son of man, have no fear of them or of their words, even if sharp thorns are round you and you are living among scorpions: have no fear of their words and do not be overcome by their looks, for they are an uncontrolled people. 7 And you are to give them my words, if they give ear to you or if they do not: for they are uncontrolled. 8 But you, son of man, give ear to what I say to you, and do not be uncontrolled like that uncontrolled people: let your mouth be open and take what I give you. 9 And looking, I saw a hand stretched out to me, and I saw the roll of a book in it; 10 And he put it open before me, and it had writing on the front and on the back; words of grief and sorrow and trouble were recorded in it. 1 And he said to me, Son of man, take this roll for your food, and go and say my words to the children of Israel. 2 And, on my opening my mouth, he made me take the roll as food. 3 And he said to me, Son of man, let your stomach make a meal of it and let your inside be full of this roll which I am giving you. Then I took it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth. 4 And he said to me, Son of man, go now to the children of Israel, and say my words to them. 5 For you are not sent to a people whose talk is strange and whose language is hard, but to the children of Israel; 6 Not to a number of peoples whose talk is strange and whose language is hard and whose words are not clear to you. Truly, if I sent you to them they would give ear to you. 7 But the children of Israel will not give ear to you; for they have no mind to give ear to me: for all the children of Israel have a hard brow and a stiff heart. 8 See, I have made your face hard against their faces, and your brow hard against their brows. 9 Like a diamond harder than rock I have made your brow: have no fear of them and do not be overcome by their looks, for they are an uncontrolled people. 10 Then he said to me, Son of man, take into your heart all my words which I am about to say to you, and let your ears be open to them. 11 And go now to those who have been taken away as prisoners, to the children of your people, and say to them, This is what the Lord has said; if they give ear or if they do not. 12 Then I was lifted up by the wind, and at my back the sound of a great rushing came to my ears when the glory of the Lord was lifted up from his place. 13 And there was the sound of the wings of the living beings touching one another, and the sound of the wheels at their side, the sound of a great rushing. 14 And the wind, lifting me up, took me away: and I went in the heat of my spirit, and the hand of the Lord was strong on me. 15 Then I came to those who had been taken away as prisoners, who were at Telabib by the river Chebar, and I was seated among them full of wonder for seven days.”

“1 For this reason, holy brothers, marked out to have a part in heaven, give thought to Jesus the representative and high priest of our faith; 2 Who kept faith with God who gave him his place, even as Moses did in all his house. 3 And it was right for this man to have more honour than Moses, even as the builder of a house has more honour than the house. 4 For every house has a builder; but the builder of all things is God. 5 And Moses certainly kept faith as a servant, in all his house, and as a witness of those things which were to be said later; 6 But Christ as a son, over his house; whose house are we, if we keep our hearts fixed in the glad and certain hope till the end. 7 And so, as the Holy Spirit says, Today if you let his voice come to your ears, 8 Be not hard of heart, as when you made me angry, on the day of testing in the waste land, 9 When your fathers put me to the test, and saw my works for forty years. 10 So that I was angry with this generation, and I said, Their hearts are in error at all times, and they have no knowledge of my ways; 11 And being angry I made an oath, saying, They may not come into my rest. 12 My brothers, take care that there is not by chance in any one of you an evil heart without belief, turning away from the living God: 13 But give comfort to one another every day as long as it is still Today; so that no one among you may be made hard by the deceit of sin: 14 For if we keep the substance of the faith which we had at the start, even till the end, we have a part with Christ; 15 As it is said, Today if you will let his voice come to your ears, be not hard of heart, as when you made him angry. 16 Who made him angry when his voice came to them? was it not all those who came out of Egypt with Moses? 17 And with whom was he angry for forty years? was it not with those who did evil, who came to their deaths in the waste land? 18 And to whom did he make an oath that they might not come into his rest? was it not to those who went against his orders? 19 So we see that they were not able to go in because they had no belief.”

Top Psalms 104:1-23, BBE.

“1 Give praise to the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great; you are robed with honour and power. 2 You are clothed with light as with a robe; stretching out the heavens like a curtain: 3 The arch of your house is based on the waters; you make the clouds your carriage; you go on the wings of the wind: 4 He makes winds his angels, and flames of fire his servants. 5 He has made the earth strong on its bases, so that it may not be moved for ever and ever; 6 Covering it with the sea as with a robe: the waters were high over the mountains; 7 At the voice of your word they went in flight; at the sound of your thunder they went away in fear; 8 The mountains came up and the valleys went down into the place which you had made ready for them. 9 You made a limit over which they might not go, so that the earth would never again be covered by them. 10 You sent the springs into the valleys; they are flowing between the hills. 11 They give drink to every beast of the field; the mountain asses come to them for water. 12 The birds of the air have their resting-places by them, and make their song among the branches. 13 He sends down rain from his store-houses on the hills: the earth is full of the fruit of his works. 14 He makes the grass come up for the cattle, and plants for the use of man; so that bread may come out of the earth; 15 And wine to make glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face shining, and bread giving strength to his heart. 16 The trees of the Lord are full of growth, the cedars of Lebanon of his planting; 17 Where the birds have their resting-places; as for the stork, the tall trees are her house. 18 The high hills are a safe place for the mountain goats, and the rocks for the small beasts. 19 He made the moon for a sign of the divisions of the year; teaching the sun the time of its going down. 20 When you make it dark, it is night, when all the beasts of the woods come quietly out of their secret places. 21 The young lions go thundering after their food; searching for their meat from God. 22 The sun comes up, and they come together, and go back to their secret places to take their rest. 23 Man goes out to his work, and to his business, till the evening.”

Top Proverbs 26:24-26, BBE.

“24 With his lips the hater makes things seem what they are not, but deceit is stored up inside him; 25 When he says fair words, have no belief in him; for in his heart are seven evils: 26 Though his hate is covered with deceit, his sin will be seen openly before the meeting of the people.”
