And I looked, and behold, a [a]whirlwind came out of the North, a great cloud and a fire wrapped about it, and a brightness was about it, and in the midst thereof, to wit, in the midst of the fire came out as the likeness of [b]amber.

Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of [c]four beasts, and this was their form: they had the appearance of a man,

And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.

Ezekiel 1:4-6 New International Version (NIV)

I looked, and I saw a windstorm coming out of the north—an immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light. The center of the fire looked like glowing metal, and in the fire was what looked like four living creatures. In appearance their form was human, but each of them had four faces and four wings.
