Abbott's Illustrated New Testament

Revelation 19

Verse 9

Verse 9

Called unto the marriage supper; called to share in the rejoicing.

Verse 10

Verse 10

Is the spirit of prophecy; is the same in its origin and spiritual value.

Verse 11

Verse 11

For similar images and expressions denoting Christ, see Revelation 3:14,Revelation 6:2.

Verse 12

Verse 12

Knew; understood, in respect to its import and meaning. What the name itself was, is stated in the Revelation 19:13. (See John 1:1.) This declaration should make us very distrustful of any ideas which we may attempt to form of the nature of the divine Word, and of his relation to the Father, beyond the simple declarations of the Scriptures. Even the attempt to combine these declarations, for the purpose of giving to the result a general and systematic expression, is a very uncertain undertaking.

Verse 13

Verse 13

A vesture dipped in blood; a common emblem of war. It is to denote, in this instance, the terrible destruction with which he should visit his enemies,--as is expressed distinctly Revelation 19:17-66.19.21.

Verse 16

Verse 16

On his thigh; at his thigh; that is, upon the hilt of his sword.

Verse 21

Verse 21

The remnant; that is, of those that had worshipped the beast.
