Wesley's Notes for Ezekiel 28:14


28:14 Cherub - For thy wisdom, power, and excellency, like a cherub, or angel; for the sacredness of thy person, and office, as the anointed of God; for the exercise of thy power, as a shield, as a protector of the weak. And I - I, whom thou forgetest have made thee so. Thou wast - Thou wast advanced to kingly dignity, (which David calls a mountain, #Psa 30:7|,) a sacred office, and of divine institution. In the midst - Surrounded with stones, that sparkle like fire.
