    The winepress was trodden outside of the city, and blood came out from the winepress, even to the
    bridles of the horses, as far as one thousand six hundred stadia.

    Douay-Rheims - Revelation 14:20

    And the press was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the press, up to the horses'
    bridles, for a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

    VERSE (20) -
    Isa 63:1-3 La 1:15

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 14:20

    Y el lagar fue pisado fuera de la ciudad, y del lagar sali sangre hasta los frenos de los caballos por mil seiscientos estadios.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 14:20

    Verse 20. Even unto the
    horse bridles] A hyperbolical expression, to denote a great effusion of blood. The Jews said, "When Hadrian besieged the city called Bitter, he slew so many that the horses waded in blood up to their mouths." The same kind of hyperbole with that above. See Wetstein on this verse.

    The space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.] It is said that the state of the Church, or St. Peter's patrimony, extends from Rome to the Po, two hundred Italian miles, which make exactly one thousand six hundred furlongs! If this be really so, the coincidence is certainly surprising, and worthy of deep regard.

    On these two last verses pious Quesnel thus speaks: "As the favourable sickle of Jesus Christ reaps his wheat when ripe for heaven, so that of the executioners of his justice cuts off from this life the tares which are only fit for the fire of hell. Then shall the blood of Christ cease to be trampled on by sinners; and that of the wicked shall be eternally trodden down in hell, which is the winepress of the wrath of God.

    "And the winepress was trodden without the city, eternally without the city of the heavenly Jerusalem, and far from the presence of God; eternally crushed and trodden down by his justice; eternally tormented in body and soul, without any hope either of living or dying! This is the miserable lot and portion of those who shall have despised the law of God, and died in impenitence. My God, pierce my heart with a salutary dread of thy judgments!" Whatever these passages may mean, this is a prudent and Christian use of them.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. And the winepress was trodden without the city , etc.] The beloved city, the new Jerusalem, into which none of the wicked will enter, and without which are dogs, etc. ( Revelation 20:9 21:27 22:15). The allusion may be, as Dr. Lightfoot thinks, to the olive presses, which were without the city of Jerusalem, from whence Gethsemane had its name, whither our Lord went, and where his sorrows began the night he was betrayed: hell is sometimes expressed by outer darkness, and said to be far off from heaven, and between the one and the other a great gulf is fixed, the distance is considerable; hence men are said to go forth to behold the miseries of the wicked; (see Matthew 22:13 Luke 16:23,26 Isaiah 66:24). and blood came out of the winepress ; alluding to the juice squeezed out of grapes, called the blood of grapes, ( Genesis 49:11). Even unto the horses' bridles, for the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs ; which is only an hyperbolical expression, setting forth the largeness and universality of the destruction of the wicked, and the impossibility of their escaping it. In like manner the Jews express a great slaughter of men; so of the slaughter at Bither, by Adrian, they say f366 , they went on slaying wmjwj-d[ db swsh [q d[ , until a horse plunged in blood up to his nostrils, and the blood ran four miles into the sea; which is not to be understood literally, but as expressing a prodigious effusion of blood: and as to the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs , perhaps there may be an allusion to the measure of the land of Israel, and the common notion of it among the Jews, who make it to be the square of four hundred parsoe f367 : hence they often speak of the land of Israel shaking and moving four hundred parsoe, upon some extraordinary occasions f368 ; and a parsa contained four miles f369 , so that four hundred parsoe made a thousand and six hundred miles; and if miles and furlongs are the same, in which sense only the land of Israel could be so large, here is the exact space; for Jerom f370 , who was an inhabitant of it, says, it was scarce 160 miles in length, to which agrees R. Menachem f371 ; and it may be observed, that the Arabic version renders the words, by the space of a thousand and six hundred miles. The Ethiopic version, very wrongly, reads, sixteen furlongs.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-20 - Warnings and judgments not having produced
    reformation, the sins of the nations are filled up, and they become ripe for judgments, represente by a harvest, an emblem which is used to signify the gathering of the righteous, when ripe for heaven, by the mercy of God. The harvest tim is when the corn is ripe; when the believers are ripe for heaven, the the wheat of the earth shall be gathered into Christ's garner. And by vintage. The enemies of Christ and his church are not destroyed, til by their sin they are ripe for ruin, and then he will spare them n longer. The wine-press is the wrath of God, some terrible calamity probably the sword, shedding the blood of the wicked. The patience of God towards sinners, is the greatest miracle in the world; but, thoug lasting, it will not be everlasting; and ripeness in sin is a sure proof of judgment at hand __________________________________________________________________
