And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.
All Commentaries on Psalms 18:10 Go To Psalms 18
George Leo Haydock
Winds. God mounts his chariot, as it were, (Ezechiel i. 4.) to come speedily to David's assistance. Æschylus, and other pagan authors, seem to have imitated this description. (Eusebius, præp. evan. xiii. 13.)
The Fathers explain the former verse of Christ's incarnation, or of his second coming; and this of his ascension. (St. Athanasius)
They may also (Haydock) intimate that God is ready to pardon as well as to punish. (Worthington)
Plato (Phædro) represents the Deity on "a winged chariot, directing and taking care of all things. "(Haydock)
