Vision of the Glory of God Filling the Temple

And His cvoice° was like the sound° of many° waters°; and the earth° dshone° with His glory°. 3 And [it was] like the appearance° of the vision° which° I saw°, like the avision° which° I saw° when IHe came° to bdestroy° the city°. And the visions° [were] like the vision° which° I saw° by the criver° Chebar°; and I dfell° on my face°. 4 And the glory° of the LORD° came° into the house° by the way° of the gate° facing° toward° the aeast°. 5 And the aSpirit° lifted° me up and brought° me into the inner° court°; and behold°, the bglory° of the LORD° filled° the house°.
