    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:11

    Y mir, y oí la voz de muchos ngeles alrededor del trono, y de los animales, y de los ancianos; y la multitud de ellos era millones y millones,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 5:11

    Verse 11. The
    voice of many angels] These also are represented as joining in the chorus with redeemed mortals.

    Ten thousand times ten thousand] "Myriads of myriads and chiliads of chiliads;" that is, an infinite or innumerable multitude. This is in reference to Dan. vii. 10.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. And I beheld, and heard the voice of many angels , etc.] Immaterial spirits, made by Christ, and worshippers of him, and ministering spirits to him and his, the holy and elect angels, who are confirmed in their state by Christ; these John beheld in a visionary way, and heard the voices and articulate sounds formed by them; and there were many of them; how many there are, or were here, cannot be said; we read of a multitude of heavenly host that appeared at the incarnation of Christ, and of more than twelve legions of angels, that Christ could have had of his Father for a word speaking, at the time of his apprehension, who would have rescued him out of the hands of his enemies; yea, that company is innumerable. The Syriac version reads, as the voice of many waters; these were round about the throne ; were near to God, stood before him, behind his face, hearkened to his voice, and observed his orders: so with the Jews, the four angels, Michael, Gabriel, Uriel, and Raphael, are said to be raskl bybs , round about his throne, the throne of God: it follows here, and the beasts and the elders ; the sense is not, that John heard the voice of the living creatures, and of the elders, as well as, and together with, the voice of many angels; for he had heard their voice and song before, but that the angels whose voice he heard, as they were round about the throne, so they were round about the living creatures, and round about the elders: the angels are near unto, and encompass the ministers of the Gospel; they are about them, and give them intimations and discoveries of the mind and will of God, as an angel did to John, ( Revelation 1:1), and another to Paul, ( Acts 27:23,24), and sometimes direct them where to go and preach the Gospel, as in ( Acts 16:9,10), and surround them for their safety and protection: so horses and chariots of fire, by whom angels are meant, were round about the prophet Elisha, ( 2 Kings 6:16,17), and they were also round about the elders, the churches, and particular believers; angels and saints are near to one another; and angels are very friendly to the saints, and so them many good offices; they all belong to the same family, and are social worshippers of God; the angels are the guards that encamp round about them that fear the Lord, and often protect them from enemies and dangers; and it may be observed, that the saints are nearer the Lamb and the throne than the angels be; according to this account, there was a throne, and one that sat on it, who is the living God; nearest to the throne stood the Lamb; next to the Lamb stood the four living creatures, the ministers of the Gospel; next to them the elders, or churches, and members thereof; and in the outermost ring, and as encompassing all, stood the ministering angels, they being servants; whereas the saints are the heirs of salvation, and the bride, the Lamb's wife, and therefore nearer him: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands ; that is, an innumerable company of them; a like number is mentioned in ( Daniel 7:10) to which this seems to refer; (see Psalm 68:17). The Jews speak of nine hundred and six thousand millions of ministering angels, that stand constantly before the Lord f156 .

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 8-14 - It is matter of
    joy to all the world, to see that God deals with men in grace and mercy through the Redeemer. He governs the world, not merel as a Creator, but as our Saviour. The harps were instruments of praise the vials were full of odours, or incense, which signify the prayers of the saints: prayer and praise should always go together. Christ ha redeemed his people from the bondage of sin, guilt, and Satan. He ha not only purchased liberty for them, but the highest honour an preferment; he made them kings and priests; kings, to rule over their own spirits, and to overcome the world, and the evil one; and he make them priests; giving them access to himself, and liberty to offer u spiritual sacrifices. What words can more fully declare that Christ is and ought to be worshipped, equally with the Father, by all creatures to all eternity! Happy those who shall adore and praise in heaven, an who shall for ever bless the Lamb, who delivered and set them apart for himself by his blood. How worthy art thou, Of God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, of our highest praises! All creatures should proclaim the greatness, and adore thy majesty __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    11. Ten
    thousand times ten thousand (muriadev muriadwn). Lit., ten thousands of ten thousands. Compare Ps. lxviii. 17; Dan. viii. 10. Muriav, whence the English myriad, means the number ten thousand. So, literally, Acts xix. 19, ajrguriou muriadav pente fifty-thousand pieces of silver; lit., five ten-thousands. In the plural used for an unlimited number. See Luke xii. 1; Acts xxi. 20; Heb. xii. 22; Jude 14.

    Thousands (ciliadev). Ciliav, a collective term like, muriav, meaning the number one thousand, is almost invariably used with men in Revelation. See chapter vii. 4; xi. 13. Only once with a material object (chapter xxi. 16). With inferior objects cilioi a thousand is used. See chapter xi. 3; xii. 6. These words are the theme of Alford's noble hymn - "Ten thousand times ten thousand In sparkling raiment bright, The armies of the ransomed saints Throng up the steeps of light: 'Tis finished, all is finished, Their fight with death and sin; Fling open wide the golden gates, And let the victors in."
