Ezekiel 10:1 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

As it were a sapphire stone - See the note on Ezekiel 1:22-26 (note). The chariot, here mentioned by the prophet, was precisely the same as that which he saw at the river Chebar, as himself tells us, Ezekiel 1:15, of which see the description in Ezekiel 1.
