A.(1) Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head of the cherubims there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the likeness of a throne. (2) And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in between the wheels, even under the cherub, and fill thine hand with coals of fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in my sight.
B.(3) Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.
C.(4) Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and stood over the threshold of the house;
B’. and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the brightness of the LORD’S glory.
A’.(5) And the sound of the cherubims’ wings was heard even to the outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh. (6) And it came to pass, that when he had commanded the man clothed with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, from between the cherubims; then he went in, and stood beside the wheels. (7) And one cherub stretched forth his hand from between the cherubims unto the fire that was between the cherubims, and took thereof, and put it into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it, and went out.
