It was the sound of the wings of the living beings as they brushed against each other and the rumbling of their wheels beneath them.
Then the LORD spoke to the man in linen clothing and said, "Go between the whirling wheels beneath the cherubim, and take a handful of burning coals and scatter them over the city." He did this as I watched.
I looked, and each of the four cherubim had a wheel beside him, and the wheels sparkled like beryl.
