Ezekiel 10:3

Ezekiel 10:3

Now the cherubim stood on the right side of the house
According to the Targum, it was the south side of the house; and so Jarchi interprets it opposite to the north, where the gross idolatries were committed, ( Ezekiel 8:3 Ezekiel 8:5 Ezekiel 8:14 ) ; standing at the greatest distance from them, and bearing their testimony against them: when the man went in;
they stood as it were in a levee, through which the man passed, waiting upon him; paying a respect to him; assenting to what he did; and approving of it: this circumstance is mentioned, because they were not always in this position, only at this time; nor did they continue so; we afterwards hear of their motion: and the cloud filled the inner court;
the court of the priests, not as a token of God's presence, as at the dedication of the temple; but rather of judicial blindness and darkness, which the people of the Jews were left unto.
