    World English Bible

    I heard a
    sound from heaven, like the sound of many waters, and like the sound of a great thunder. The sound which I heard was like that of harpists playing on their harps.

    Re 10:4; 11:12,15; 19:1-7

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:2

    Y oí una voz del cielo como ruido de muchas aguas, y como sonido de un gran trueno; y oí una voz de taedores de arpas que taían con sus arpas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 14:2

    Verse 2. The
    voice of many waters] That is, of multitudes of various nations.

    The voice of harpers] Though the sounds were many and apparently confused, yet both harmony and melody were preserved.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. And I heard a voice from heaven , etc.] The same with the voices heard in heaven upon the sounding of the seventh trumpet, ( Revelation 11:15); as the voice of many waters ; very loud, and uttered by a great multitude of people, signified by waters in this book, ( Revelation 17:15); the same with those that praise the Lord for the destruction of antichrist, and for the marriage of the Lamb, ( Revelation 19:1-7); and as the voice of a great thunder ; to which the Gospel may be compared for its open, loud publication, being heard far and near, as thunder is: and I heard the voice of harpers, harping with their harps ; that is, singing the praises of God, for the fall of Babylon, the happy state and condition of the church, and the blessings of grace; the harp being a musical instrument, used under the Old Testament in singing praise: Brightman thinks that these different sounds represent the course of Gospel doctrine, and the church's voice throughout the reign of antichrist; that when the church first went into the wilderness, her voice was like the murmuring of waters, confused and indistinct; when she began to revive under the Waldenses and Albigenses, Wickliff, Huss, etc. her voice was like thunder, loud and terrible; and at the Reformation, it was as the voice of harpers, when confessions of faith were published with sweet harmony and consent.

    Others have thought that the different properties and efficacy of the Gospel are designed; as its rapidity and irresistible force, by the many waters; its striking and shaking the consciences of men, by the thunder, Christ's ministers being sometimes Boanergeses, sons of thunder; and its harmonious music, pleasant sound, peace, joy, and comfort it brings, by the voice of harpers. The Alexandrian copy, the Complutensian edition, the Vulgate Latin, and all the Oriental versions, read, the voice which I heard was as harpers, etc.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-5 - Mount Sion is the gospel church. Christ is with his church, and in the midst of her in all her troubles, therefore she is not consumed. Hi presence secures perseverance. His people appear honourably. They have the name of God written in their foreheads; they make a bold and ope profession of their faith in God and Christ, and this is followed by suitable actings. There were persons in the darkest times, who venture and laid down their lives for the worship and truth of the gospel of Christ. They kept themselves clean from the wicked abominations of the followers of antichrist. Their hearts were right with God; and the were freely pardoned in Christ; he is glorified in them, and they in him. May it be our prayer, our endeavour, our ambition, to be found in this honourable company. Those who are really sanctified and justifie are meant here, for no hypocrite, however plausible, can be accounte to be without fault before God. (Rev 14:6-13)

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. And I heard the
    voice of harpers (kai fwnhn hkousa kiqarwdwn). The correct reading is, kai hJ fwnh hn hkousa wJv kiqarwdwn and the voice which I heard (was) as (the voice) of harpers. Kiqarwdov is from kiqara a harp (see on ch. v. 8) and wjdov a singer. Properly, one who sings, accompanying himself on the harp.
