← Tužaljke 5   Ezekijel 2 →

1 Godine tridesete, četvrtoga mjeseca, petoga dana, kad bijah među izgnanicima na rijeci Kebaru, otvoriše se nebesa i ja ugledah božanska viđenja.

2 Petoga dana istoga mjeseca - godine pete otkako odvedoše u izgnanstvo kralja Jojakima -

3 riječ Jahvina dođe Ezekielu, sinu Buzijevu, svećeniku u zemlji kaldejskoj, na rijeci Kebaru. Spusti se na me ruka Jahvina.

4 Pogledah, kad ono sa sjevera udario silan vihor, velik oblak, bukteći oganj obavijen sjajem; usred njega, usred ognja, nešto nalik na sjajnu kovinu.

5 Usred toga nešto kao četiri bića, obličjem slična čovjeku;

6 svako od njih sa četiri obraza, u svakoga četiri krila.

7 Noge im ravne, a stopala kao u teleta; sijevahu poput glatke mjedi.

8 Ispod krila imahu na sve četiri strane ruke čovječje. I svako od njih četvero imaše svoj obraz i svoja krila.

9 Krila im se spajahu jedno s drugim. Idući, ne okretahu se: svako se naprijed kretaše.

10 I u sva četiri bijaše lice čovječje; u sva četiri zdesna lice lavlje; u sva četiri slijeva lice volujsko; i lice orlovsko u sva četiri.

11 Krila im bijahu gore raskriljena. Svako imaše dva krila što se spajahu i dva krila kojim tijelo pokrivahu.

12 I svako iđaše samo naprijed. A iđahu onamo kamo ih je duh gonio. I ne okretahu se idući.

13 A posred tih bića vidjelo se kao neko užareno ugljevlje, kao goruće zublje koje se među njima kretahu; iz ognja sijevaše i munje bljeskahu.

14 Bića trčahu i opet se vraćahu poput munje.

15 Dok ja promatrah, gle: na zemlji uza svako od četiri bića po jedan točak.

16 Točkovi bijahu slični krizolitu, sva četiri istoga oblika; oblikom i napravom bijahu kao da je jedan točak u drugome.

17 U kretanju mogli su ići u sva četiri smjera a nisu se morali okretati.

18 Naplatnice im bijahu visoke, a kad bolje promotrih, gle, na sve strane pune očiju.

19 Kad bi bića krenula, krenuli bi s njima i točkovi; kad bi se bića sa tla podigla, i točkovi se podizahu.

20 Kuda ih je duh gonio, onuda se kretahu, a zajedno se s njima i točkovi podizali, jer duh bića bijaše u točkovima.

21 Pa kad su bića krenula, i točkovi bi krenuli, a kad bi se ona zaustavila, ustavljali se i točkovi; kad se ona sa tla dizahu, i točkovi se s njima podizahu, jer duh bića bijaše u točkovima.

22 Nad glavama bića bijaše nešto kao svod nebeski, nalik na sjajan prozirac, uzdignut nad njihovim glavama.

23 A pod svodom raskriljena krila, jedno prema drugome: svakome po dva krila pokrivahu tijelo.

24 Čuh lepet njihovih krila kao huk velikih voda, kao glas Svesilnog, kao silan vihor, kao graju u taboru. Kad bi se bića zaustavila, spustila bi krila.

25 Sa svoda nad njihovim glavama čula se grmljavina.

26 Ispod svoda nad njihovim glavama bijaše nešto kao kamen safir, poput prijestolja: na tom kao prijestolju, gore na njemu, kao neki čovjek.

27 I vidjeh kao sjajnu kovinu, iznutra i uokolo kao oganj; od njegovih bokova naviše i od njegovih bokova naniže nešto poput ognja i blijeska na sve strane.

28 Taj blijesak na sve strane bijaše poput duge što se za kišnih dana javlja u oblaku. To bijaše nešto kao slava Jahvina. Vidjeh, padoh ničice i čuh glas koji mi govoraše.
