    :4

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:5

    Y oí al ngel de las aguas, que decía: Seor, t eres justo, que eres y que eras el Santo, porque has juzgado estas cosas;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 16:5

    Verse 5. The
    angel of the waters] The rabbins attribute angels, not only to the four elements so called, but to almost every thing besides. We have already seen the angel of the bottomless pit, chap. ix. 11, and the angel of the fire, chap. xiv. 18. The angel of the earth is spoken of in Yalcut Rubeni, fol. 13, 2, and is called Admael. They have also an angel that presides over the grass; another that presides over the cattle which feed upon the grass.

    They say that God employed the angel of the sea to swallow up the waters at the creation, that the dry land might appear. He disobeyed, and God slew him; the name of the angel of the sea is Rahab. See Baba bathra, fol. 74, 2. It is plain from several places that the writer of the Apocalypse keeps these notions distinctly in view.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. And I heard the angel of the waters say , etc.] So we read in Jewish writings of an angel that was amyd ar , the prince of the sea, and of angels that were over the waters, and others over fire f381 ; though here is designed not one of the ym ykalm angels of the water, that presided ove the waters, as another over fire; (see Gill on Revelation 14:18), but the third angel that poured out his vial upon the waters; when he had so done, he said as follows. Dr. Lightfoot thinks, and that not without reason, that since these angels appeared in the garb of priests, ( Revelation 15:6) and since there was a priest appointed to take care of the wells, and fountains, and ditches about Jerusalem, that the people might have water at the feasts f382 , there is an allusion to him; and certain it is that there was such an officer; there was one Nechoniah, who was over the fountains and ditches f383 ; and in the same office was Nicodemon ben Gorion f384 , thought to be the Nicodemus mentioned in the New Testament. Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shall be : which may be understood either of God the Father, who had power over these plagues, ( Revelation 16:9) and sent them; or of the Lord Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all, and is righteous in all his ways and works, in all his judgments on antichrist, and is the eternal I AM, which is, and was, and shall be; (see Revelation 1:8). The Alexandrian copy, and most others, and the Vulgate Latin and Syriac versions, read holy, instead of shalt be; for the purity and holiness of Christ will be seen in the judgments which he will exercise, as follows: because thou hast judged thus ; or these things; or them, as the Ethiopic version reads; that is, has brought these judgments upon the men signified by rivers and fountains, and made great havoc and slaughter of them, expressed by their becoming blood; the justice of which appears from the following reason.

    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.
