Ezekiel 10:2

10:2 The Lord said to the man dressed in linen, “Go between the wheelwork underneath the cherubim. Fill your hands with burning coals from among the cherubim and scatter them over the city.” He went as I watched.

Ezekiel 10:20

10:20 These were the living creatures which I saw at the Kebar River underneath the God of Israel; I knew that they were cherubim.

tn Heb “and he”; the referent (the Lord) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

tn The Hebrew term often refers to chariot wheels (Isa 28:28; Ezek 23:24; 26:10).

tc The LXX, Syriac, Vulgate, and Targum mss read plural “cherubim” while the MT is singular here, “cherub.” The plural ending was probably omitted in copying the MT due to the similar beginning of the next word.

tn Heb “That was the living creature.”
