10:2 The Lord 1 said to the man dressed in linen, “Go between the wheelwork 2 underneath the cherubim. 3 Fill your hands with burning coals from among the cherubim and scatter them over the city.” He went as I watched.
10:3 (The cherubim were standing on the south side 4 of the temple when the man went in, and a cloud filled the inner court.) 10:4 Then the glory of the Lord arose from the cherub and moved to the threshold of the temple. The temple was filled with the cloud while the court was filled with the brightness of the Lord’s glory. 10:5 The sound of the wings of the cherubim could be heard from the outer court, like the sound of the sovereign God 5 when he speaks.
10:6 When the Lord 6 commanded the man dressed in linen, “Take fire from within the wheelwork, from among the cherubim,” the man 7 went in and stood by one of the wheels. 8 10:7 Then one of the cherubim 9 stretched out his hand 10 toward the fire which was among the cherubim. He took some and put it into the hands of the man dressed in linen, who took it and left.
