When those cherubim moved, these wheels went; and when those stopped, these stopped; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up beside them, for the spirit of the living creatures was in the wheels. Bible see other translations

“for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.” What the phrase means is unclear. Scholars do mostly agree that the phrase serves to show that the whole chariot-throne system works together and moves together in concert (cp. Ezek. 10:17).
