    Definitions for Ezekiel 10:9

    Beryl - A precious stone.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 10:9

    The color of a beryl stone - אבן תרשיש eben Tarshish, "the stone of Tarshish." The Vulgate translates it chrysolith; Symmachus, the jacinct; the Septuagint, the carbuncle. In the parallel place, Ezekiel 1:16, it is כעין תרשיש keeyn Tarshish, "like the eye of Tarshish;" i.e., the color of tarshish, or the stone so called, which the Vulgate translates visio maris, "like the sea," i.e., azure. The beryl is a gem of a green color, passing from one side into blue, on the other side into yellow. The chrysolith is also green, what is called pistachio green; but the chrysolith of the ancients was our topaz, which is of a fine wine yellow. The beryl, or chrysolith, is most likely what is here meant by tarshish. One name among the ancients served for several kinds of gems that were nearly of the same color. The moderns go more by chemical characters than by color.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 10:9

    10:9 Looked - Attentively viewed. Beryl stone - Of sea - green.
