Being an avid cherub lover, I thought it would help you decide on your cherub tattoo design if you knew the spiritual meaning behind cherubs. The best way I could portray what the spiritual meaning of a cherub is through the verses I found from the bible. Therefore, below is a list of bible verses on cherubs:
Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, Thou that sit test upon the cherubs, shine forth (Ps. 80:1).
Jehovah shall reign; the peoples shall shake. He sitteth on the cherubs (Ps. 99:1).
Jehovah rode upon a cherub, and did fly (Ps. 18:10).
Jehovah Zebaoth, that dwellest on the cherubs (Isa. 37:16).
Other winged creatures called cherubim guarded the tree of life in the Garden of Eden after Adam and Eve sinned (Genesis 3:24).
“You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones.
You were perfect in your ways from the day you were created, till iniquity was found in you. (Ezek. 28:14-15)
These are just a few cherub verses in the Bible I found. There are many more, but to be honest they are hard to find. The basic spiritual meaning of the cherub is a winged being that looks like a child and is in the second order of nine orders of angels.
I hope this helps you decide if cherub tattoos are right for you. I will be doing more research on the other spiritual meanings of the cherub and perhaps by then you will have chose your perfect cherub tattoo design!
