10:5 a man clothed in linen. Vv. 5, 6 give a detailed description of an angel, perhaps the one who spoke to Gabriel (8:16), or Gabriel himself (9:21). His appearance is much like that of the glory of the Lord (Ezek. 1:26–28; Rev. 1:12–16). For other references to angels, see Judg. 13:6; Ezek. 9:2, 3; 10:2; Luke 24:4.
