Ezekiel 8:3

He stretched out the form of a hand, and took me by a lock of my hair; and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven, and brought me in visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the north gate of the inner court, where the seat of the image of jealousy was, which provokes to jealousy.

അവൻ കൈപോലെ ഒന്നു നീട്ടി എന്നെ തലമുടിക്കു പിടിച്ചു; ആത്മാവു എന്നെ ഭൂമിയുടെയും ആകാശത്തിന്റെയും മദ്ധ്യേ ഉയർത്തി ദിവ്യദർശനങ്ങളിൽ യെരൂശലേമിൽ വടക്കോട്ടുള്ള അകത്തെ വാതിൽക്കൽ കൊണ്ടുചെന്നു; അവിടെ തീഷ്ണത ജനിപ്പിക്കുന്ന തീക്ഷണതാ ബിംബത്തിന്റെ ഇരിപ്പിടം ഉണ്ടായിരുന്നു.
