Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
Then I looked, and behold, a likeness as the appearance of a man; from His loins and downward there was the appearance of fire, and from His loins and upward the appearance of brightness, like the appearance of glowing metal.

King James Bible
Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
I looked, and there was a form that had the appearance of a man. From what seemed to be His waist down was fire, and from His waist up was something that looked bright, like the gleam of amber.

amber. Amber is a hard, inflammable, bituminous substance, of a beautiful yellow colour, very transparent, and susceptible of an exquisite polish. When rubbed it is highly endowed with electricity; a name which the moderns have formed from its Greek name []. But, as amber becomes dim as soon as it feels the fire, and is speedily consumed, it is probable that the original chasmal, which Bochart derives from the Chaldee nechash, copper, and melala, gold, was a mixed metal, similar to that which the Greeks called [] electrum, as the LXX and Vulgate render, from its resemblance to amber in colour.
