Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 18:10

_ _ cherub — angelic agents (compare Genesis 3:24), the figures of which were placed over the ark (1 Samuel 4:4), representing God’s dwelling; used here to enhance the majesty of the divine advent. Angels and winds may represent all rational and irrational agencies of God’s providence (compare Psalms 104:3, Psalms 104:4).

_ _ did fly — Rapidity of motion adds to the grandeur of the scene.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 18:1-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 18:10

Cherub — Or, upon the cherubim, upon the angels, who are also called God's chariots, Psalms 68:17, upon which he is said to sit and ride. All which is not to be understood grossly, but only to denote God's using the ministry of angels, in raising such storms and tempests. Fly — As swiftly as the wind.
