Ezekiel 10:14 Meaning and Commentary

Ezekiel 10:14

And everyone had four faces
That is, everyone of the wheels, for of these the words are continued; and which agrees with ( Ezekiel 1:15 ) ; (See Gill on Ezekiel 1:15): the first face [was] the face of a cherub;
this being in the room of the ox's face, ( Ezekiel 1:10 ) , shows that the face of an ox and a cherub are the same; and that the living creatures have the general name of cherubim, from the face of an ox; and are so called from (brk) , which in the Syriac and Chaldee languages signifies to "plough", that creature being made use of in such service: and the second face [was] the face of a man, and the third the face of
a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle;
how these are applicable to Gospel churches, and the true members of them, (See Gill on Ezekiel 1:15).

Ezekiel 10:14 In-Context

12 And their whole body, and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels, were full of eyes round about, even the wheels that they four had.
13 As for the wheels, it was cried unto them in my hearing, O wheel.
14 And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.
15 And the cherubims were lifted up. This is the living creature that I saw by the river of Chebar.
16 And when the cherubims went, the wheels went by them: and when the cherubims lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the same wheels also turned not from beside them.
