Cherubim of Glory


Above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot now speak in detail. Hebrews 9:5

The cherubim had their wings spread upward, covering the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces toward each other; the faces of the cherubim were toward the mercy seat.  Exodus 37:9

For the cherubim spread their wings over the place of the ark, and the cherubim made a covering over the ark and its poles from above.  1 Kings 8:7

But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet.  John 20:11-12
