Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 1:12

_ _ The same idea as in Ezekiel 1:9. The repetition is because we men are so hard to be brought to acknowledge the wisdom of God’s doings; they seem tortuous and confused to us, but they are all tending steadily to one aim.

_ _ the spirit — the secret impulse whereby God moves His angels to the end designed. They do not turn back or aside till they have fulfilled the office assigned them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 1:4-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 1:12

Straight — Which way soever they went, each living creature had one face looking straight forward. The spirit — The will, command, and breathing of the Spirit of God, both gave and guided their motions. Was to go — Going is attributed here to the Spirit of God, by allusion, for he who is in every place cannot properly be said to go from or to any place. Turned not — They looked not back, they turned not out of the way, they gave not over, 'till they had compleated their course.
