    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 41:18

    A palm tree was between a cherub and a cherub - That is, the palm trees and the cherubs were alternated; and each cherub had two faces, one of a lion and the other of a man; one of which was turned to the palm tree on the right, the other to the palm tree on the left.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 41:18

    On the symbolism of the "cherubim" see Ezekiel 1:1 note ...

    Every cherub had two faces - Not as in Ezekiel 1, "four faces." Convenience of delineation upon a wall may have suggested the alteration. The cherubic devices on the curtains of the tabernacle Exodus 26:1; Exodus 36:8 were no doubt like the cherubim over the ark, of which we have no reason to suppose that each had "two faces." The symbolic character here admitted of the deviation.
