Ezekiel 10:20 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 10:20

This [is] the living creature that I saw under the God of
Israel, by the river of Chebar
This is repeated from ( Ezekiel 10:15 ) ; not only for the confirmation of it; but with an addition, to show that the appearance of the man upon the throne, ( Ezekiel 1:26 ) , is no other than the God of Israel; and inasmuch as Christ is there meant, for the Father never appeared in a human form, it follows that Christ is the God of Israel, under whose power, protection, and influence, the cherubim, his ministers, are; and so this is a proof of the true and proper deity of Christ: and I knew that they [were] the cherubim;
not by having seen the cherubim on the mercy seat, and comparing these forms with them, which none but a high priest could ever see; for, though Ezekiel was a priest, it does not appear that he was a high priest; but by the forms of them he had seen carved on the doors and walls of the temple, ( 1 Kings 6:29 1 Kings 6:35 ) .

Ezekiel 10:20 In-Context

18 Then the glory of the LORD departed from over the threshold of the temple and stopped above the cherubim.
19 While I watched, the cherubim spread their wings and rose from the ground, and as they went, the wheels went with them. They stopped at the entrance of the east gate of the LORD’s house, and the glory of the God of Israel was above them.
20 These were the living creatures I had seen beneath the God of Israel by the Kebar River, and I realized that they were cherubim.
21 Each had four faces and four wings, and under their wings was what looked like human hands.
22 Their faces had the same appearance as those I had seen by the Kebar River. Each one went straight ahead.
