And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.
 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.
 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.
 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin’s captivity,
 The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of the LORD was there upon him.
 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.
 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.
 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.
 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.
 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.
 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.
 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.
 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.
 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.
 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.
 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.
 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.
 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went.
 As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.
 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.
 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
 Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.
