In this vision, God transports him (Ezekiel) to the city of Jerusalem, to the temple of Solomon, the most sacred place of Judaism, and Ezekiel observes that the Israelites remaining in the lands of Judah do not fulfill the agreement with God established by Moses and start worshiping idols from neighboring civilizations, so Ezekiel sees “the Glory” leaving the Temple and head east, to Babylon, with the exiled people:

“And the cherubims were lifted up. This is the living creature that I saw by the river of Chebar. And when the cherubims went, the wheels went by them: and when the cherubims lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the same wheels also turned not from beside them. When they stood, these stood; and when they were lifted up, these lifted up themselves also: for the spirit of the living creature was in them.Then the glory of the LORD departed from off the threshold of the house, and stood over the cherubims. And the cherubims lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them, and every one stood at the door of the east gate of the LORD'S house; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above”
