Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

The noise of their wings - When the whirlwind drove the wheels, the wind rustling among the wings was like the noise of many waters; like a waterfall, or waters dashing continually against the rocks, or rushing down precipices.

Covenanting Enforced by the Grant of Covenant Signs and Seals.
