Vision reports occupy large space in the Book of Ezekiel and
the texts put special emphasis on the details of receiving a
vision. In Thailand, Buddhist monks or Hindu priests also
have seen visions. Mediums travel to distant places in
visions and meet with spirits. Christian churches set goals
for the future and call them visions. This study takes a
closer look at visions both in the Book of Ezekiel and in
the Thai context by focusing on the Thai translation of
Hebrew terms for visions. Besides that, it compares the
Hebrew concepts behind visions with the Thai understanding.
