CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
5:9 There came out - From the same place whence the ephah came. Their wings - They had wings, like the wings of storks, large and strong, and flew before the wind with great swiftness. The judgments came thus flying, and so bore away with them those that were incorrigible.
"These are the birds that are detestable to you. You must never eat them: the griffon vulture, the bearded vulture, the black vulture,
the stork, herons of all kinds, the hoopoe, and the bat.
There the birds make their nests, and the storks make their homes in the cypresses.
Even the stork that flies across the sky knows the time of her migration, as do the turtledove, the swallow, and the crane. They all return at the proper time each year. But not my people! They do not know the LORD's laws.
"Where are they taking the basket?" I asked the angel.
