Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 19:3

19:1 I heard a loud voice of a great multitude - Whose blood the great whore had shed. Saying, Hallelujah - This Hebrew word signifies, Praise ye Jah, or Him that is. God named himself to Moses, EHEIEH, that is, I will be, #Exod 3:14|; and at the same time, Jehovah, that is, He that is, and was, and is to come: during the trumpet of the seventh angel, he is styled, He that is and was, #Rev 16:5|; and not He that is to come; because his long - expected coming is under this trumpet actually present. At length he is styled, Jah, He that is; the past together with the future being swallowed up in the present, the former things being no more mentioned, for the greatness of those that now are. This title is of all others the most peculiar to the everlasting God. The salvation - Is opposed to the destruction which the great whore had brought upon the earth. His power and glory - Appear from the judgment executed on her, and from the setting up his kingdom to endure through all ages.

19:2 For true and righteous are his judgments - Thus is the cry of the souls under the altar changed into a song of praise.

19:4 And the four and twenty elders, and the four living creatures felt down - The living creatures are nearer the throne than the elders. Accordingly they are mentioned before them, with the praise they render to God, #Rev 4:9|,10; 5:8,14; inasmuch as there the praise moves from the centre to the circumference. But here, when God's judgments are fulfilled, it moves back from the circumference to the centre. Here, therefore, the four and twenty elders are named before the living creatures.

19:5 And a voice came forth from the throne - Probably from the four living creatures, saying, Praise our God - The occasion and matter of this song of praise follow immediately after, verses 6, #Rev 19:6 |&c.; God was praised before, for his judgment of the great whore, verses 1 - 4. #Rev 19:1 |- 4 Now for that which follows it: for that the Lord God, the Almighty, takes the kingdom to himself, and avenges himself on the rest of his enemies. Were all these inhabitants of heaven mistaken? If not, there is real, yea, and terrible anger in God.
