Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 1:7

_ _ straight feet — that is, straight legs. Not protruding in any part as the legs of an ox, but straight like a man’s [Grotius]. Or, like solid pillars; not bending, as man’s, at the knee. They glided along, rather than walked. Their movements were all sure, right, and without effort [Kitto, Cyclopedia].

_ _ sole ... calf’s foot — Henderson hence supposes that “straight feet” implies that they did not project horizontally like men’s feet, but vertically as calves’ feet. The solid firmness of the round foot of a calf seems to be the point of comparison.

_ _ colourthe glittering appearance, indicating God’s purity.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 1:4-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 1:7

Feet — Their thighs, legs and feet, were of a human shape. Straight — Not bowed to this or that part, which argues weakness. The sole — That which is properly the foot. A calf's — A divided hoof spake the cleanness of the creature. They — Their feet.
