Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 1:11

_ _ The tips of the two outstretched wings reached to one another, while the other two, in token of humble awe, formed a veil for the lower parts of the body.

_ _ stretched upward — rather, “were parted from above” (compare Margin; see on Isaiah 6:2). The joining together of their wings above implies that, though the movements of Providence on earth may seem conflicting and confused, yet if one lift up his eyes to heaven, he will see that they admirably conspire towards the one end at last.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 1:4-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 1:11

Divided — So each face appeared distinct above the shoulders, and there the wings divided from each other were united to the body of the living creature.
