NET © Notes

tn The construction is a participle in construct followed by the genitive “wings” – “spreaders of wings.”

tn “The cherubim” has been placed here instead of in the second clause to produce a smoother translation.

tn Heb “and their faces a man to his brother.”

tn Heb “to the atonement lid were the faces of the cherubim.”
