When they stood, [these] stood
When the one were inactive, lifeless, and without motion, making no progress in knowledge, experience, and practice, the other were so likewise; (See Gill on Ezekiel 1:21); and when they were lifted up, [these] lifted up themselves [also];
like people, like priest, whether in things commendable or not, ( Hosea 4:9 ) ; for the spirit of the living creature [was] in them;
the same spirit that was in the cherubim was in the wheels; and the same Spirit of God, who is a "spirit of life" F3, as the words may be rendered, is in the churches, as in the ministers; generally speaking, if the one are lively, the other are also, and both move as they are acted by the Spirit; and also their motion from place to place, which is spoken of in ( Ezekiel 10:18 ) , is directed by the Spirit; see ( Acts 16:6 Acts 16:7 ) .
