And everyone had four faces
That is, everyone of the wheels, for of these the words are continued; and which agrees with ( Ezekiel 1:15 ) ; (See Gill on Ezekiel 1:15): the first face [was] the face of a cherub;
this being in the room of the ox's face, ( Ezekiel 1:10 ) , shows that the face of an ox and a cherub are the same; and that the living creatures have the general name of cherubim, from the face of an ox; and are so called from (brk) , which in the Syriac and Chaldee languages signifies to "plough", that creature being made use of in such service: and the second face [was] the face of a man, and the third the face of
a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle;
how these are applicable to Gospel churches, and the true members of them, (See Gill on Ezekiel 1:15).
