Out from the throne *came flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder. And there were
seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God;
and before the throne there was something
like a sea of glass, like crystal; and in the center and around the throne, four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind.
The first living creature was
like a lion, the second creature like a calf, the third creature had a face like that of a man, and the fourth creature was
like a flying eagle.
And the four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within; and day and night they do not cease to say, 'HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is
the LORD GOD, THE ALMIGHTY, who was and who is and who is to come.'
