[I heard] also the noise of the wings of the living creatures,
&c.] Which they clapped, when they uttered the preceding words; (See Gill on Ezekiel 1:24); that touched one another;
or "kissed, a woman her sister" F18; denoting their affection and agreement in the doxology or ascription of glory to God; see ( Ezekiel 1:9 Ezekiel 1:11 Ezekiel 1:23 ) ; and the noise of the wheels over against them:
the living creatures; for the wheels were by the living creatures, and went over against them, as they went, ( Ezekiel 1:15 Ezekiel 1:19-21 ) ; ministers and churches join together in this doxology: and a noise of a great rushing;
which is repeated for the confirmation of the thing, and to express the greatness of the noise made by the living creatures and wheels, like that of thunder or an earthquake; it is said to be like the noise of great waters, ( Ezekiel 1:24 ) .
