Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezekiel 10:9

_ _ wheels — (See on Ezekiel 1:15, Ezekiel 1:16). The things which, from Ezekiel 10:8 to the end of the chapter, are repeated from the first chapter are expressed more decidedly, now that he gets a nearer view: the words “as it were,” and “as if,” so often occurring in the first chapter, are therefore mostly omitted. The “wheels" express the manifold changes and revolutions in the world; also that in the chariot of His providence God transports the Church from one place to another and everywhere can preserve it; a truth calculated to alarm the people in Jerusalem and to console the exiles [Polanus].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezekiel 10:8-22.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 10:9

Looked — Attentively viewed. Beryl stone — Of sea — green.

Tarshish is generally rendered by the LXX and the Vulgate the chrysolite, so called by the ancients (from χρυσος (χρψσος) [Strong's G5557], gold, and λιθος [Strong's G3037], a stone), because of its fine gold yellow colour. It is now called by the moderns the topaz; is a very beautiful and valuable gem in its pure and perfect state, though very rarely found so; and the finer pieces of it are in hardness second only to the diamond. The Vulgate, however, in
Ezekiel 1:16 The appearance of the wheels and their work [was] like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work [was] as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

) says, that, with Abarbanel, he believes the beryl to be intended. It is a pellucid gem, called by our lapidaries, aqua marina of a sea or bluish green colour, found in the East Indies and about the gold mines of Peru. The genuine beryl never receives any other mixture of colour; and in its perfect state approaches the hardness of garnet.
