Not illustrated. 1899 edition. Excerpt: ...and Ezekiel strenuously combat the 9 popular belief that Jhvh would not leave Israel, whatever its faults (Jer. 5o7,4-15)--a belief which was a natural result of the ancient conception of the relation between the Deity and His people. The body of the nation was yet far from comprehending the moral side of religion. (Tlofee on 0apUr to. (1) With this chapter cf. c. 1. V. 1 breaks the connection between 9,11 10,2 and 10,2, and belongs by its contents to the section vv. 9-22; but it is difficult to find a place for it there, and it is better omitted. It appears to assume 5 that the Glory has returned from the threshold (9,3) to the Cherubs; on this point see below, note 6. (2) The Hebrew word (galgdl, a collective term) here rendered chariot means properly mass (or system) of wheels; a different word (ofdn) for wheel is used in cc. 1. 2. To render the former word as literally as possible, and at 1o the same time distinguish the two terms, we might translate the former (galgdl) by "whirling wheels (as RV), or whirler, or wheelwork; but, as the reference is to the lower part of the chariot, this more common word may be employed. The same word galgdl is used in 23,24; 26,1o of the Assyrian and Babylonian war-chariots. In the use of galgdl in our passage there may be an 15 allusion to the whirlwind, in which sense the term occurs in Ps. 77,18; cf. Is. 5,28. Compare below, note 13 (p. 115, 1. 13). (3) The Cherubs are here introduced (as in 9,3) without explanation; below (v. 2o) they are identified with the Creatures of c. I. Name and thing were doubtless familiar to priests (and probably to people) from the figures in the 2o Temple. What the form of the Cherub of the Temple was we do not know, but Ezekiel has probably here modified it. (4) more
