"As soon as the Holy One,
blessed be He, took me to serve the throne of glory, the wheels of the
chariot, and all the needs of the Shekhinah [Holy
Spirit/Divine Presence], at once my flesh was changed into flame, my
tendons into a fire of glowing heat, my bones to glowing juniper coals,
my eyelids to radiance of lightning bolts, my eyeballs to torches of
fire, the hair of my head to glowing heat and flame, all my limbs to
wings of burning fire, and my bodily frame to scorching fire. On my
right were hewers of fiery flames, on my left torches were burning.
There blew around me wind, storm, and tempest, and the noise of
earthquake upon earthquake was in front of me and behind me."
- 3 Enoch 15:1b-2; para. 19
