    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 1:13

    Like burning coals of fire - The whole substance appeared to be of flame; and among them frequent coruscations of fire, like vibrating lamps, often emitting lightning, or rather sparks of fire, as we have seen struck out of strongly ignited iron in a forge. The flames might be something like what is called warring wheels in pyrotechny. They seemed to conflict together.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 1:13

    Lamps - "like the appearance of" flames. Omit the "and" before "like." The "bright flames" resembled "coals of fire."

    It went up - i. e. "fire went up."

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 1:13

    1:13 The fire - This fire stood not still, but as the Hebrew is, Made itself walk up and down. It moved itself, which is too much to ascribe to creatures: God only moved all these living creatures.
