Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 10:2

_ _ he — Jehovah; He who sat on the “throne.”

_ _ the man — the Messenger of mercy becoming the Messenger of judgment (see on Ezekiel 9:2). Human agents of destruction shall fulfil the will of “the Man,” who is Lord of men.

_ _ wheelsHebrew, galgal, implying quick revolution; so the impetuous onset of the foe (compare Ezekiel 23:24; Ezekiel 26:10); whereas “ophan,” in Ezekiel 1:15, Ezekiel 1:16 implies mere revolution.

_ _ coals of fire — the wrath of God about to burn the city, as His sword had previously slain its guilty inhabitants. This “fire,” how different from the fire on the altar never going out (Leviticus 6:12, Leviticus 6:13), whereby, in type, peace was made with God! Compare Isaiah 33:12, Isaiah 33:14. It is therefore not taken from the altar of reconciliation, but from between the wheels of the cherubim, representing the providence of God, whereby, and not by chance, judgment is to fall.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 10:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 10:2

He — That sat on the throne. Scatter — That it may take fire in all parts, and none may escape.
