    SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:12

    Y sus ojos eran como llama de fuego, y había en su cabeza muchas diademas; y tenía un nombre escrito que ninguno ha conocido sino l mismo;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 19:12

    Verse 12. His
    eyes were as a flame of fire] To denote the piercing and all-penetrating nature of his wisdom.

    On his head were many crowns] To denote the multitude of his conquests, and the extent of his dominion.

    A name written, that no man knew] This is a reference to what the rabbins call the shem hammephorash, or tetragrammaton, hwhy YHVH; or what we call Jehovah. This name the Jews never attempt to pronounce: when they meet with it in the Bible, they read ynda Adonai for it; but, to a man, they all declare that no man can pronounce it; and that the true pronunciation has been lost, at least since the Babylonish captivity; and that God alone knows its true interpretation and pronunciation. This, therefore, is the name which no man knew but he himself.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. His eyes were as a flame of fire , etc.] Which denotes the perspicuity and penetration of them, the omniscience of Christ to look into and discover the secret machinations, schemes, and devices of his enemies against his people, and his exercise of it in favour of them, his eyes, like a flame of fire, running to and fro on their behalf; and also this may signify the fierceness of his anger against the enemies of his people, the eyes of his glory being provoked by their cruelty and wickedness; and likewise the suddenness of their destruction, and the inevitableness of it. And on his head were many crowns ; for he has not only a crown, as the Creator and Governor of the universe, in right of nature, but he has one which his Father has put upon his head, when he set him as King over his holy hill of Zion, ( Psalm 21:3) and there is another which his mother, the church, crowned him with in the day of his espousals, ( Song of Solomon 3:11) and besides these, every believer puts a crown on his head, gives him the glory of their salvation, and all of them cast their crowns at his feet: to which may be added, that the crowns of all the kings of the earth are his; they reign by him, and are accountable to him. This part of the description may be expressive of that all power in heaven and earth, given to Christ at his resurrection, and exercised by him ever since; and particularly of the extensiveness of his kingdom at the time this vision refers to, when the kingdoms of this world shall be his, ( Revelation 11:15) for this vision, and the seventh trumpet, are contemporary; and it may be a symbol of the many victories obtained by him, and of the last and closing one that should now be obtained by him. And he had a name written that no man knew but he himself ; which seems to be his name, the Son of God, as the unknown name of the overcomer, in ( Revelation 2:17) is a child of God; and the sense is, that his divine nature, in which he is the Son of God, is incomprehensible, and that the begetting or generation of him, as such, is ineffable, ( Proverbs 30:4) and that without a divine revelation the name itself could not be known; or it could not be known that God had a Son, and that Christ is he, and bears that name, ( Matthew 11:27 16:16,17) or else his name Immanuel. The incarnate God may be intended, which is a secret and wonderful name, and contains in it, without controversy, a great mystery, which cannot be comprehended by finite minds; or his name, alp , wonderful, secret, ( Isaiah 9:6 Judges 13:18). This name is said to be written; that is, in the Scriptures of truth, in which it is revealed that Christ is the Son of God, and Immanuel. In ( Revelation 19:16) the name of King of kings, etc. is said to be written on his vesture, and on his thigh; and the Ethiopic version makes this to be written on his crown or diadem, reading the words thus; and upon his head a crown, and there was written in his diadem a name, and no man knew it, but he himself only; as the high priest had holiness to the Lord written on his mitre. The Syriac version inserts a clause between the two last, having names written, and then follows, and a name written, etc. and so the Complutensian edition.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 11-21 -
    Christ, the glorious Head of the church, is described as on a whit horse, the emblem of justice and holiness. He has many crowns, for he is King of kings, and Lord of lords. He is arrayed in a vesture dippe in his own blood, by which he purchased his power as Mediator; and in the blood of his enemies, over whom he always prevails. His name i "The Word of God;" a name none fully knows but himself; only this we know, that this Word was God manifest in the flesh; but his perfection cannot be fully understood by any creature. Angels and saints follow and are like Christ in their armour of purity and righteousness. The threatenings of the written word he is going to execute on his enemies The ensigns of his authority are his name; asserting his authority an power, warning the most powerful princes to submit, or they must fal before him. The powers of earth and hell make their utmost effort These verses declare important events, foretold by the prophets. Thes persons were not excused because they did what their leaders bade them How vain will be the plea of many sinners at the great day! We followe our guides; we did as we saw others do! God has given a rule to wal by, in his word; neither the example of the most, nor of the chief must influence us contrary thereto: if we do as the most do, we must go where the most go, even into the burning lake __________________________________________________________________
