    SEV Biblia, Chapter 17:6

    Y vi la mujer embriagada de la sangre de los santos, y de la sangre de los mrtires de Jess; y cuando la vi, qued maravillado de gran asombro.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 17:6

    Verse 6. And I saw the
    woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.] How exactly the cruelties exercised by the Latin Church against all it has denominated heretics correspond with this description, the reader need not be informed.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. And I saw the
    woman drunken with the blood of the saints , etc.] To see a woman drunk is a shameful sight; but to see one drunk, not with wine, but with blood, is monstrous, cruel, and shocking; the sword, when it devours, and is satiate, is said to be drunk with blood, ( Jeremiah 46:10) but for a woman to be so is unexampled; and not with her own blood, as she will be, ( Isaiah 49:26 Revelation 16:6) but with the blood of others; and not with the blood of wicked men, but with the blood of saints; such as God the Father has set apart from everlasting, and chosen to be holy; whom Christ has sanctified by his blood, or whose sins he has expiated, and to whom he is made sanctification; and who have principles of grace and holiness wrought in them by the Spirit of God, and live holy lives and conversations: and of the martyrs of Jesus ; the saints, whose blood is shed by antichrist, are martyrs also; but they seem to design the common people, and these the ministers of the Gospel, who are the martyrs of Jesus, both in life and death; they are his martyrs or witnesses, by their doctrine and ministry, bearing testimony to him as Jesus, a Saviour; testifying that he is the only Saviour, that there is salvation in no other, in opposition to the antichristian doctrines of merit, penance, purgatory, etc. for which they have been cruelly put to death, and in great numbers, and so have sealed their doctrine by their blood. Now the woman being drunk with their blood, denotes the blood thirstiness of the church of Rome, her greedy aud insatiable desire after the blood of the saints, and her delight in it, being exceeding mad against them; and the multitude of it shed by her, as the slaughters of the Waldenses and Albigenses, the butcheries of the duke d'Alva in the Low Countries, the massacres in France, Ireland, and other places, the burning of the martyrs in Queen Mary's days here, with numerous other instances, show. And when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration ; not at the sight of the beast, which he had seen before, but at the sight of the woman, as, upon the beast; he wondered that one of her sex, generally timorous and fearful, should ride on such a monstrous creature; he was amazed at her dress, and grand appearance, whereas the church in his time consisted of poor persons, meanly arrayed; it was astonishing to him that one bearing the name of a Christian church should rise to such grandeur; and he wondered at the name upon her forehead, what the whole of that inscription should mean; but, above all, at her drunkenness with the blood of the saints; at her inhumanity and cruelty, being as savage as the beast she rode on; and also at God's forbearance of her, that he, who is a pure and holy Being, a lover of his saints, an avenger of his elect, should suffer such a brutish, barbarous, and blood thirsty creature, to live upon earth; (see Habakkuk 1:13).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 -
    Rome clearly appears to be meant in this chapter. Pagan Rome subdue and ruled with military power, not by art and flatteries. She left the nations in general to their ancient usages and worship. But it is wel known that by crafty and politic management, with all kinds of decei of unrighteousness, papal Rome has obtained and kept her rule ove kings and nations. Here were allurements of worldly honour and riches pomp and pride, suited to sensual and worldly minds. Prosperity, pomp and splendour, feed the pride and lusts of the human heart, but are n security against the Divine vengeance. The golden cup represents the allurements, and delusions, by which this mystical Babylon has obtaine and kept her influence, and seduced others to join her abominations She is named, from her infamous practices, a mother of harlots training them up to idolatry and all sorts of wickedness. She fille herself with the blood of the saints and martyrs of Jesus. Sh intoxicated herself with it; and it was so pleasant to her, that sh never was satisfied. We cannot but wonder at the oceans of Christia blood shed by men called Christians; yet when we consider thes prophecies, these awful deeds testify to the truth of the gospel. An let all beware of a splendid, gainful, or fashionable religion. Let u avoid the mysteries of iniquity, and study diligently the great myster of godliness, that we may learn humility and gratitude from the exampl of Christ. The more we seek to resemble him, the less we shall be liable to be deceived by antichrist.

    6.
    Saints - martyrs. The saints include the martyrs or witnesses, but the latter word emphasizes the testimony of the saints which has been the cause of their death. For martyr; see on 1 Pet. v. 1.
