Now as I looked at the living creatures, I saw one wheel on the ground beside the living creatures, one wheel for each of the four of them. Bible see other translations

“I saw one wheel on the ground beside the living creatures.” We now get a more complete picture of God’s cherubim chariot-throne. It is an awesome sight. Four cherubim somehow have a platform above them on which was placed God’s throne, and we are told it can move quick as lightning, being carried through the air by cherubim with powerful wings. But here in Ezekiel 1:15 we see the chariot-throne is equally as capable when moving on the ground, being equipped with four gleaming wheels. We have seen God fly on cherubim in other verses (2 Sam. 22:11), but this is the first time we see God’s throne with wheels, however, we see the wheels again in Daniel 7:9. The wheels seem to be on the outside of the cherubim (cp. Ezek. 10:2).
