Yahweh God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil.
Now, lest he reach out his hand, and also take of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever—”
Therefore Yahweh God sent him out from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken.
So he drove out the man; and he placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden,
and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life. The man knew Eve his wife.
She conceived, and gave birth to Cain , and said, “I have gotten a man with Yahweh’s help.”
Again she gave birth, to Cain’s brother Abel. Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
Around the throne were twenty-four thrones. On the thrones were twenty-four elders sitting, dressed in white garments, with crowns of gold on their heads. Out of the throne proceed lightnings, sounds, and thunders.
There were seven lamps of fire burning before his throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
Before the throne was something like a sea of glass, similar to crystal.
In the middle of the throne, and around the throne were four living creatures full of eyes before and behind.
The first creature was like a lion, and the second creature like a calf, and the third creature had a face like a man, and the fourth was like a flying eagle.
The four living creatures, each one of them having six wings, are full of eyes around and within. They have no rest day and night,
saying, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come!”
