Ezekiel 1:5-14


Also from within it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man. Each one had four faces, and each one had four wings. Their legs were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the soles of calves’ feet. They sparkled like the color of burnished bronze. The hands of a man were under their wings on their four sides; and each of the four had faces and wings. Their wings touched one another. The creatures did not turn when they went, but each one went straight forward.
As for the likeness of their faces, each had the face of a man; each of the four had the face of a lion on the right side, each of the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and each of the four had the face of an eagle. Thus were their faces. Their wings stretched upward; two wings of each one touched one another, and two covered their bodies. And each one went straight forward; they went wherever the spirit wanted to go, and they did not turn when they went.
As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches going back and forth among the living creatures. The fire was bright, and out of the fire went lightning. And the living creatures ran back and forth, in appearance like a flash of lightning.

Psalm 103:1-2


Bless the Lord, O my soul!
O Lord my God, You are very great:
You are clothed with honor and majesty,
Who cover Yourself with light as with a garment,
Who stretch out the heavens like a curtain.

Psalm 103


Praise to the Sovereign Lord for His Creation and Providence

3 | He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters,
   Who makes the clouds His chariot,
   Who walks on the wings of the wind,
4 Who makes His angels spirits,
   His ministers a flame of fire.
5 You who laid the foundations of the earth,
   So that it should not be moved forever,
6 You covered it with the deep as with a garment;
   The waters stood above the mountains.
7 At Your rebuke they fled;
   At the voice of Your thunder they hastened away.
8 They went up over the mountains;
   They went down into the valleys,
   To the place which You founded for them.
9 You have set a boundary that they may not pass over,
   That they may not return to cover the earth.
10 He sends the springs into the valleys;
     They flow among the hills.
11 They give drink to every beast of the field;
     The wild donkeys quench their thirst.
12 By them the birds of the heavens have their home;
     They sing among the branches.
13 He waters the hills from His upper chambers;
     The earth is satisfied with the fruit of Your works.
14 He causes the grass to grow for the cattle,
     And vegetation for the service of man,
     That he may bring forth food from the earth,
15 And wine that makes glad the heart of man,
     Oil to make his face shine,
     And bread which strengthens man’s heart.
16 The trees of the Lord are full of sap,
     The cedars of Lebanon which He planted,
17 Where the birds make their nests;
     The stork has her home in the fir trees.
18 The high hills are for the wild goats;
     The cliffs are a refuge for the rock badgers.
19 He appointed the moon for seasons;
     The sun knows its going down.
20 You make darkness, and it is night,
     In which all the beasts of the forest creep about.
21 The young lions roar after their prey,
     And seek their food from God.
22 When the sun rises, they gather together
     And lie down in their dens.
23 Man goes out to his work
     And to his labor until the evening.
24 O Lord, how manifold are Your works!
     In wisdom You have made them all.
     The earth is full of Your possessions—
25 This great and wide sea,
     In which are innumerable teeming things,
     Living things both small and great.
26 There the ships sail about;
     There is that Leviathan
     Which You have made to play there.
27 These all wait for You,
     That You may give them their food in due season.
28 What You give them they gather in;
     You open Your hand, they are filled with good.
29 You hide Your face, they are troubled;
     You take away their breath, they die and return to their dust.
30 You send forth Your Spirit, they are created;
     And You renew the face of the earth.
31 May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
     May the Lord rejoice in His works.
32 He looks on the earth, and it trembles;
     He touches the hills, and they smoke.
33 I will sing to the Lord as long as I live;
     I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
34 May my meditation be sweet to Him;
     I will be glad in the Lord.
35 May sinners be consumed from the earth,
     And the wicked be no more.
     Bless the Lord, O my soul!
     Praise the Lord!

Song of Songs 7:11-13


Come, my beloved,
Let us go forth to the field;
Let us lodge in the villages.
Let us get up early to the vineyards;
Let us see if the vine has budded,
Whether the grape blossoms are open,
And the pomegranates are in bloom.
There I will give you my love.
The mandrakes give off a fragrance,
And at our gates are pleasant fruits,
All manner, new and old,
Which I have laid up for you, my beloved.

Song of Songs 6



The Daughters of Jerusalem

1 Where has your beloved gone,
   O fairest among women?
   Where has your beloved turned aside,
   That we may seek him with you?

The Shulamite

2 My beloved has gone to his garden,
   To the beds of spices,
   To feed his flock in the gardens, 
   And to gather lilies.
3 I am my beloved’s,
   And my beloved is mine.  
   He feeds his flock among the lilies.
   
Praise of the Shulamite’s Beauty

The Beloved

| O my love, you are as beautiful as Tirzah,
   Lovely as Jerusalem,
   Awesome as an army with banners!
5 Turn your eyes away from me,
   For they have overcome me.
   Your hair is like a flock of goats
   Going down from Gilead.
6 Your teeth are like a flock of sheep
   Which have come up from the washing;
   Every one bears twins,
   And none is barren among them.
7 Like a piece of pomegranate
   Are your temples behind your veil.
8 There are sixty queens
   And eighty concubines,
   And virgins without number.
9 My dove, my perfect one,
   Is the only one,
   The only one of her mother,
   The favorite of the one who bore her.
   The daughters saw her
   And called her blessed,
   The queens and the concubines,
   And they praised her.
10 Who is she who looks forth as the morning,
    Fair as the moon,
    Clear as the sun,
    Awesome as an army with banners?
   
The Shulamite

11 I went down to the garden of nuts
     To see the verdure of the valley,
     To see whether the vine had budded
     And the pomegranates had bloomed.
12 Before I was even aware,
     My soul had made me
     As the chariots of my noble people.

The Beloved and His Friends

13 Return, return, O Shulamite;
     Return, return, that we may look upon you!

The Shulamite

     What would you see in the Shulamite— 
     As it were, the dance of the two camps?

Revelation 8:3-4


Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand.

Revelation 8


Seventh Seal: Prelude to the Seven Trumpets

1 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.

2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.

3 Then another angel, having a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all the saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

4 And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, ascended before God from the angel’s hand.

5 | Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and threw it to the earth. And there were noises, thunderings, lightnings, and an earthquake.

6 So the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

First Trumpet: Vegetation Struck

7 The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

Second Trumpet: The Seas Struck

8 Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood.

9 And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Third Trumpet: The Waters Struck

10 Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water.

11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

Fourth Trumpet: The Heavens Struck

12 Then the fourth angel sounded: And a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.

13 And I looked, and I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three angels who are about to sound!”
