\\INTRODUCTION TO EZEKIEL 10\\

In this chapter is a vision, very much like that in the first chapter,
with some difference, and with a different view, the design of it being
to represent the wrath of God against Jerusalem, and his departure from
the city and temple. A throne much like that in \\#Eze 1:26\\ is described,
\\#Eze 10:1\\; orders are given from it to scatter coals over the city,
\\#Eze 10:2\\; the situation of the cherubim when these orders were given,
\\#Eze 10:3\\; the removal of the glory of the Lord from the cherub to the
threshold of the house, and the consequences of it; the house filled
with smoke; the court with the brightness of the Lord's glory; and the
sound of the cherubim's wings heard to the outer court, as the voice of
God, \\#Eze 10:4,5\\; the orders of taking and scattering fire over the
city executed, and the manner in which they were, \\#Eze 10:6,7\\; a
description of the cherubim and the wheels, much like that in the first
chapter, \\#Eze 10:8-17\\; the departure of the glory of God from the
threshold to the east gate of the Lord's house, with the motion of the
cherubim and wheels along with him, \\#Eze 10:18,19\\; and the chapter is
concluded with observing, that the cherubim are the same with the
living creatures seen in the vision of the first chapter, and had the
same form, likeness, and motion, \\#Eze 10:20-22\\.
