In the Hebrew, "wind" is the same as "spirit," so this phrase could refer to "the wings of the Spirit." In the Bible's first reference to "the Spirit of God" (Genesis 1:2), He is seen as moving in the presence of the primeval waters. The word used for moving is the same as that for the fluttering movement of the wings of a great bird. The vibrating motion implies the generating of waves of energy, flowing out from the Spirit to energize the newly created cosmos. Similarly, divine energy emanates from the Spirit here but this time in destructive rather than creative power.
