Cherubim definitions

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

CHERUBIM, n. The Hebrew plural of cherub.

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Cherubim Cher"u*bim, n. The Hebrew plural of Cherub.. Cf. Seraphim. Note: Cherubims, in the King James version of the bible, is an incorrect form, made by adding the English plural termination to the Hebrew plural cherubim instead of to the singular cherub.

Webster's 1913 Dictionary

Cherub Cher"ub, n.; pl. Cherubs; but the Hebrew plural Cherubimis also used. [Heb. ker[=u]b.] 1. A mysterious composite being, the winged footstool and chariot of the Almighty, described in --Ezekiel i. and x. I knew that they were the cherubim. --Ezek. x. 20. He rode upon a cherub and did fly. --Ps. xviii. 10. 2. A symbolical winged figure of unknown form used in connection with the mercy seat of the Jewish Ark and Temple. --Ez. xxv. 18. 3. One of a order of angels, variously represented in art. In European painting the cherubim have been shown as blue, to denote knowledge, as distinguished from the seraphim (see Seraph), and in later art the children's heads with wings are generally called cherubs. 4. A beautiful child; -- so called because artists have represented cherubs as beautiful children.
