Ezekiel's vision

The "chariot vision" of the Biblical book of Ezekiel, 1670

The many eyed ones, who consist of the "many-eyed station of the Lord’s servants",[1] are celestial beings of a high angelic order, residing in the Seventh heaven.[2] They participate in service to the Lord, singing with gentle voice.[3]

The many eyed ones, especially as a "station", may be a reference to the celestial beings described in Ezekiel 's vision of the chariot (Hebrew: merkabah) in the Book of Ezekiel 1:15-21. Ezekiel's chariot vision describes four wheels (Hebrew: Ophanim) "full of eyes all around", that are accompanied by four cherubim having "eyes all over, front and back".[4]
