They had human hands under their wings on their four sides, and the four of them had their faces and their wings thus: Bible see other translations

“They had human hands under their wings.” The Hebrew is unclear as to how many arms with hands the cherubim had. The ancient exegetes said four sets of arms with hands, but modern scholars tend to believe the Hebrew text should be understood to mean two arms with hands, as a human has.
