Psalm 83:13 (a) We may believe that it is a type of a rolling, moving mass, with no anchorage, no certain dwelling place, and no goal. It describes the enemies of GOD, and their fickle character.

Ecclesiastes 12:6 (c) It is generally believed that this refers to the human heart which fails at the end of the journey, and therefore cannot again pump the blood. It occurs in the midst of the story of old age in which various parts of the body become unfit for service.

Jeremiah 18:3 (a) This type represents the processes of GOD wherein He molds and shapes either a person or a nation into the kind of vessel He desires. It represents the training He gives, and sometimes the whipping necessary in order that He may obtain the result He wishes to have.

Ezekiel 1:15 (b) Wheels always represent progress, motion, purpose, accomplishment. In this Scripture the wheels represent the power of GOD in action. The wheel within a wheel represents the inner motions, purposes and desires of our Lord within Himself. These cause the outer actions which we see, and which are represented by the big wheels. The rims of these wheels reach unto Heaven to inform us that the purposes and works of GOD are higher than ours, too high for our comprehension. The eyes on the wheels represent the omniscience of the Spirit of GOD, who knows full well what He is doing, and understands all the purposes of GOD. He sees the end from the beginning, and nothing is hidden from His sight. (See also Daniel 7:9).
