    VERSE (2) -
    Re 8:7; 14:16

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:2

    Y el primero fue, y derram su copa en la tierra; y fue hecha una plaga mala y daosa sobre los hombres que tenían la marca de la bestia, y sobre los que adoraban su imagen.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 16:2

    Verse 2. A noisome and grievous sore] This is a
    reference to the sixth Egyptian plague, boils and blains, Exod. ix. 8, 9, &c.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. And the first went , etc.] The Arabic and Ethiopic versions read, the first angel, and who undoubtedly is meant, who readily and cheerfully obeyed the orders given him, as did the
    rest; by this angel cannot be meant Pope Adrian, as Lyra, a Popish interpreter, imagines; for a pope would never hurt the worshippers of the beast, as this angel does; rather some Christian Protestant prince or magistrate is designed, and Brightman applies it to Queen Elizabeth; though a set of kings and princes yet to come seem to be intended: and poured out his vial upon the earth ; not upon the whole earth, and the inhabitants of it; not upon the temple or church of God, and the worshippers in it, which are measured, hid, and protected; nor upon the Roman Pagan empire, which was destroyed under the sixth seal, and which never had any worshippers of the beast and his image in it, for then he was not risen; nor upon the whole apostate church, only a part of it: some think the meaner and vulgar sort of Papists are meant, who were reformed by the Waldenses, Wycliff, Huss, and others before Luther; but rather the antichristian powers on the continent are designed, and particularly Germany; for as the first trumpet affected the earth, ( Revelation 8:7) and brought the Goths into Germany, and other inland countries on the continent; so this first vial affects the earth, and brings distress upon the Popish party in the same place: and this respects not the Reformation by Luther, as some have thought, nor the wars of the Turks here in the last age; though were it not for some things unfulfilled, which are to precede these vials, one would be tempted to think that this vial was now pouring out upon the empire; but I rather think this refers to a time of distress yet to come on those parts, and which will issue in a reformation from Popery again; for it should be observed, and it may be observed once for all, that though these vials are so many plagues upon antichrist, they are each of them so many steps to the advancement of Christ's kingdom and glory: and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast , and upon them which worshipped his image; that is, who were professors of the Popish religion, and adherents of the pope of Rome in those parts; (see Revelation 13:15-17) who will only feel the effects of this vial, and that by a noisome and grievous sore falling on them, in allusion to the plague of boils in Egypt, ( Exodus 9:8-11) by which may be meant, either literally something external, but not the plague in Dioclesian's time, for then the beast was not risen; and there were none that could have his mark or worship his image: some have thought the French disease is intended, which first appeared in the world in 1490, among the Papists, as a just judgment upon them for the horrible and unnatural lusts and uncleanness of the Romish clergy; and others understand it of a very great heat, which will be before the burning of the world, and will raise blisters and boils upon men: or rather this may design something internal, either the remorse of their consciences, reflections on their past practices, and black despair and horror of mind; and their madness, wrath, and fury, their malice and envy at the success of the preachers of the Gospel, and of Protestant states and princes against them; (see Deuteronomy 28:27,28,34,35). Moreover, their secret and wicked practices, both in political and ecclesiastical affairs, will be discovered, and they will appear with boils and blotches upon them all over, which will render them odious to the people, and be the means of a general reformation. Mr. Daubuz thinks the curse of wickedness in the ninth and tenth centuries, after the invocation of saints and angels, and the worship of images were settled, is meant.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-7 - We are to
    pray that the will of God may be done on earth as it is don in heaven. Here is a succession of terrible judgments of Providence and there seems to be an allusion to several of the plagues of Egypt The sins were alike, and so were the punishments. The vials refer to the seven trumpets, which represented the rise of antichrist; and the fall of the enemies of the church shall bear some resemblance to their rise. All things throughout their earth, their air, their sea, their rivers, their cities, all are condemned to ruin, all accursed for the wickedness of that people. No wonder that angels, who witness of execute the Divine vengeance on the obstinate haters of God, of Christ and of holiness, praise his justice and truth; and adore his awfu judgments, when he brings upon cruel persecutors the tortures they mad his saints and prophets suffer.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    2. And the first went. Each
    angel, as his turn comes, with draws (uJpagete, see on John vi. 21; viii. 21) from the heavenly scene.

    There fell (egeneto). Lit., there came to pass. Rev., it became. Elliott, very aptly, there broke out.

    Noisome and grievous (kakon kai ponhron). Similarly the two cognate nouns kakia and ponria malice and wickedness occur together in 1 Corinthians v. 8. Ponhrov emphasizes the activity of evil. See on Luke iii. 19.

    Sore ( elkov). See on Luke xvi. 20. Compare the sixth Egyptian plague, Exod. ix. 8-12, where the Septuagint uses this word elkov boil. Also of the boil or scab of leprosy, Lev. xiii. 18; king Hezekiah's boil, 2 Kings xx. 7; the botch of Egypt, Deut. xxviii. 27, 35. In Job ii. 7 (Sept.) the boils are described as here by ponhrov sore.
