    King James Bible - Revelation 19:10

    And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

    World English Bible

    I fell down before his
    feet to worship him. He said to me, "Look! Don't do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God, for the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy."

    Douay-Rheims - Revelation 19:10

    And I fell down before his
    feet, to adore him. And he saith to me: See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren, who have the testimony of Jesus. Adore God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And I fell at his
    feet to worship him. And he said to me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:10

    Y yo me postr a sus pies para adorarle. Y l me dijo: Mira que no lo hagas; yo soy siervo contigo, y con tus hermanos que tienen el testimonio de Jess; adora a Dios, porque el testimonio de Jess es el espíritu de profecía.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 19:10

    Verse 10. I fell at his
    feet to worship him.] Great as this angel was, St. John could not mistake him either for Jesus Christ, or for God the Father; nor was his prostration intended as an act of religious worship. It was merely an act of that sort of reverence which any Asiatic would pay to a superior. His mistake was, the considering that he was under obligation to the angel for the information which he had now received. This mistake the angel very properly corrects, showing him that it was from God alone this intelligence came, and that to him alone the praise was due.

    I am thy fellow servant] No higher in dignity than thyself; employed by the same God, on the same errand, and with the same testimony; and therefore not entitled to thy prostration: worship God - prostrate thyself to him, and to him give thanks.

    The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.] As this is a reason given by the angel why he should not worship him, the meaning must be this: I, who have received this spirit of prophecy, am not superior to thee who hast received the testimony of Christ, to preach him among the Gentiles; for the commission containing such a testimony is equal to the gift of the spirit of prophecy. Or, the spirit of prophecy is a general testimony concerning Jesus, for he is the scope and design of the whole Scripture; to him gave all the prophets witness. Take Jesus, his grace, Spirit, and religion out of the Bible, and it has neither scope, design, object, nor end.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. And I fell at his feet to worship him , etc.] Being transported with the news he brought him of the marriage, or conversion of his countrymen the Jews, and struck with reverence and awe of the glory and majesty in which the angel appeared to him; and forgetting himself, that worship was only due to God, he behaved in this manner; which is not to be excused nor justified, as appears from the angel's words: and he said unto me, see thou do it not ; the words are in the original very short and concise, and are spoken in an abrupt manner, and in great haste; as fearing he would be guilty of idolatry, before he could speak all his mind, and use the arguments that were necessary to dissuade from it: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus ; if this was one of the ministering spirits, he was a servant of the same Lord as John; and if he was a minister of the Gospel, he was still more literally a fellow servant of his, and of the apostles, and preachers of the Gospel; which is meant by the testimony of Jesus, that bearing testimony to the person, office, grace, obedience, sufferings, and death of Christ, and the glory following; and therefore being but a servant, and a servant in common with John and his brethren, was by no means to be worshipped; not the servant, but master; not the creature, but the Creator: worship God and him only, even God the Father, Son, and Spirit; not the Father to the exclusion of the Son, the firstborn, whom all the angels are called upon to worship; nor of the Spirit, who is equally joined with the Father and Son in baptism, a part of religious worship, and in other parts of it also; but this excludes all creatures, angels, and men, things animate or inanimate, and images of them; the worshipping of which will now be no more, or at least will be quickly at an end. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy that is, the testimony of Jesus, or the Gospel which John and his brethren had, is the very spirit, life, and soul of the prophecy of this book; for as all the prophets bore witness to Christ, so does the Spirit of God in this; or the testimony which they had, and bore to Christ, was equal to the spirit of prophecy with which this angel was endowed; so that he and they were upon an equal foot; and he was no more a proper object of divine and religious adoration than they were.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-10 - Praising
    God for what we have, is praying for what is yet further to be done for us. There is harmony between the angels and the saints in thi triumphant song. Christ is the Bridegroom of his ransomed church. Thi second union will be completed in heaven; but the beginning of the glorious millennium (by which is meant a reign of Christ, or a state of happiness, for a thousand years on earth) may be considered as the celebration of his espousals on earth. Then the church of Christ, being purified from errors, divisions, and corruptions, in doctrine discipline, worship, and practice, will be made ready to be publicl owned by him as his delight and his beloved. The church appeared; no in the gay, gaudy dress of the mother of harlots, but in fine linen clean and white. In the robes of Christ's righteousness, imputed for justification, and imparted for sanctification. The promises of the gospel, the true sayings of God, opened, applied, and sealed by the Spirit of God, in holy ordinances, are the marriage-feast. This seem to refer to the abundant grace and consolation Christians will receiv in the happy days which are to come. The apostle offered honour to the angel. The angel refused it. He directed the apostle to the true an only object of religious worship; to worship God, and him alone. Thi plainly condemns the practice of those who worship the elements of bread and wine, and saints, and angels; and of those who do not believ that Christ is truly and by nature God, yet pay him a sort of worship They stand convicted of idolatry by a messenger from heaven. These ar the true sayings of God; of Him who is to be worshipped, as one with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    10. See thou do it not (ora mh). See not (to do it).

    The testimony of Jesus (h marturia tou Ihsou). Some explain as the testimony which proceeds from Jesus. Jesus, by imparting this testimony to believers imparts to them the spirit of prophecy. Others, the witness which is born to Jesus. The way of bearing this witness, the substance and essence of this testimony is the Spirit of prophecy.
