Ezekiel 1:6

1:6 but each had four faces and four wings.

Ezekiel 1:9

1:9 their wings touched each other; they did not turn as they moved, but went straight ahead. 1 

Ezekiel 1:24

1:24 When they moved, I heard the sound of their wings – it was like the sound of rushing waters, or the voice of the Almighty, 2  or the tumult 3  of an army. When they stood still, they lowered their wings.

1 tn Heb “They each went in the direction of one of his faces.”

2 tn Heb “Shaddai” (probably meaning “one of the mountain”), a title that depicts God as the sovereign ruler of the world who dispenses justice. The Old Greek translation omitted the phrase “voice of the Almighty.”

3 tn The only other occurrence of the Hebrew word translated “tumult” is in Jer 11:16. It indicates a noise like that of the turmoil of a military camp or the sound of an army on the march.
