Ezek. 1:4 And I looked, and, behold, (in this vision), a whirlwind (of thoughts) came out of the north (of the temple of my mind), a great cloud (of veiled priestly secrets), and a fire (of burning insight) infolding itself, and a (awesome) brightness was about it, (the Secret Esoteric Knowledge of Israel), and out of the midst (of all the repressive circumstances of the moment) thereof, as (blending into a certain understanding, like) the colour of amber, out of the midst of the (destructive) fire (of this Babylonian Captivity).

Ezek 1:1-2 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth (13) year, in the fourth (4) month, in the fifth (5) day of the month, (13 + 4 + 5 = 22, the number of bones on the winnowing fork-like hand: [Matt 3:12]), as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar (during the Babylonian exile), that the heavens (within my mind) were opened, and I saw visions, (in my thinking), of God).

In the fifth (5) day of the month, (one hand), which was the fifth (5) year of king Jehoiachinís (Babylonian) captivity, (on the other hand, 5 +5 = 10 fingers on my my two priestly hands), the word of the LORD came expressly, (authoritatively told: [amar: Hebrew]), unto Ezekiel the priest, (Levite, Kohanim, of the Hand Blessing), the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the (fanned out) hand of the LORD (with fingers paired and spread: Luke 3:17-19), was there upon him.

Ezek. 1:5-7
Also out of the midst thereof came (before my face) the likeness of four living creatures, (the four fingers on my right hand: [Rev 1:16]). And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man, (of course).  And every one (in my imagination), had four faces, (appearing to me upon the four knuckles), and every one had (symbolically), four "wings," (which were the four fingers extending from them).  And (the three digits of each finger), their "feet," were straight feet; and the sole, (the nail of the third digit), of these "feet," (the finger nail), was like the sole of a calf's foot: and (those nails, in the fire), they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.

Ezek. 1:8-9 And,  (when clenched), they had the hands of a man UNDER their "wings" (of the four fingers), on their four sides; and they four, ((the four faces of the beast upon the knuckles), had their (4) faces and their (four [4] sets of three [3] digits on these) wings (of their four [4] fingers). 
Their wings were (articulated), joined one to another (three phalanges articulated one to the next); they turned not (like flapping wings of birds might) when they went, (but could move in a waving motion); they went every one (pointing) straight forward.

Ezek. 1:10 As for the likeness of their faces (on the knuckles), they four had the face of a man (on the knuckle of the middle finger), and the face of a lion (on the knuckle of the index finger, to the right side of the middle finger): and they four had the face of an ox (on the left side of the little finger, on the ring finger); they four also had the face of an eagle (on the little finger's knuckle).
