(7) Their feet were straight feet.--Rather, each of their legs was a straight leg, i.e., without any bend in it, as at the knee, but was equally fitted for motion in any direction. So also "the sole of their feet," the part which rested on the ground, was not, like the human foot, formed to move forward only, but was round and solid, something "like the sole of a calf's foot."

They sparkled.--This refers only to "the sole of the feet," the hoof. The "burnished brass" is a different word from that used in Ezekiel 1:4, and gives another feature to the general brilliancy and magnificence of the vision.

Verse 7. - Their feet were straight feet, etc. The noun is probably used as including the lower part of the leg, and what is meant is that the legs were not bent, or kneeling. What we may call the bovine symbolism appears at the extremity, and the actual foot is round like a calf's. The LXX. curiously enough gives "their feet were winged (πτερωτοὶ)." Burnished brass. Probably a shade less brilliant, or more ruddy, than the electrum of ver. 4 (see note there).
