Brass Eagle

In the Bible versus the Quran: under their Wings, they had the Hands of a Man

 

The Lion is mentioned in the Bible 119 times, 110 times in the Old Testament and nine times in the New Testament.

The Lion itself is not mentioned in the Noble Quran; however, wild beasts (wild animals) is mentioned once.

In the Bible, Ezekiel 1:3-16 Bible gives very strange characters for four living creatures; each of them has four faces and four wings. Their legs (of the living creatures with four faces) were straight, and the soles of their feet were like the sole of a calf’s foot. And they sparkled like burnished bronze.  The likeness of their faces were like the face of a man, and the face of a lion, the face of an ox on the left side; and the face of an eagle…etc.

Nothing like that is found in the Noble Quran.

For the interested reader, see the articles: The Lion in the Bible versus the Quran 1-3.

 

==============================================

 

Ezekiel 1:3-16 in two different versions of the Bible:

 

New International Version

 

3] The word of the LORD came to Ezekiel the priest… The hand of the LORD was upon him.

4] I looked, and I saw a windstorm coming out of the north—an immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light. The center of the fire looked like glowing metal,

5] And in the fire was what looked like four living creatures. In appearance their form was that of a man,

6] But each of them had four faces and four wings.

7] Their legs were straight; their feet were like those of a calf and gleamed like burnished bronze.

8] Under their wings on their four sides they had the hands of a man. All four of them had faces and wings,

9] and their wings touched one another. Each one went straight ahead; they did not turn as they moved.

10] Their faces looked like this: Each of the four had the face of a man, and on the right side each had the face of a lion, and on the left the face of an ox; each also had the face of an eagle.

11] Such were their faces. Their wings were spread out upward; each had two wings, one touching the wing of another creature on either side, and two wings covering its body.

12] Each one went straight ahead. Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, without turning as they went.

13] The appearance of the living creatures was like burning coals of fire or like torches. Fire moved back and forth among the creatures; it was bright, and lightning flashed out of it.

14] The creatures sped back and forth like flashes of lightning.

15] As I looked at the living creatures, I saw a wheel on the ground beside each creature with its four faces.

16] This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like chrysolite, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel.

 

King James Version

 

3] The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest…and the hand of the LORD was there upon him.

4] And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

5] Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.

6] And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.

7] And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.

8] And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.

9] Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they went; they went every one straight forward.

10] As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.

11] Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.

12] And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.

13] As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.

14] And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.

15] Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.

16] The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.
