    :9 Zec 13:7

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:12

    que decían a alta voz: El Cordero que fue muerto es digno de tomar potencia, y riquezas, y sabiduría, y fortaleza, y honra, y gloria, y bendicin.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 5:12

    Verse 12. To receive
    power] That is, Jesus Christ is worthy to take, labein, to have ascribed to him, power - omnipotence; riches- beneficence; wisdom - omniscience; strength - power in prevalent exercise; honour - the highest reputation for what he has done; glory - the praise due to such actions; and blessing - the thankful acknowledgments of the whole creation. Here are seven different species of praise; and this is exactly agreeable to the rabbinical forms, which the author of this book keeps constantly in view. See Sepher Rasiel, fol. 39, 2: "To thee belongs dwbk cabod, glory; hlwdg gedulah, magnitude; hrwbg geburah, might; hklmmh hammamlakah, the kingdom; hrapth hattiphereth, the honour; jxnh hannetsach, the victory; dwhhw vehahod, and the praise."

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. Saying with a loud
    voice , etc.] To signify their zeal, fervour, and affection for Christ, and to make a free, open, and public acknowledgment of him, and that all might hear of his worthiness, and of the praise and glory that were due unto him: worthy is the Lamb that was slain ; they address him as the Lamb, and not as the Lord of lords, and their Lord; and speak of him as having been slain, and celebrate the virtue and efficacy of his sufferings and death, and ascribe his worthiness to receive glory and honour thereunto; but do not add, as the living creatures and elders do, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood; because, though they were the subjects and objects of confirming grace by Christ, yet not of redeeming grace: it follows, to receive power and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour , and glory, and blessing ; as the book has seven seals to be unloosed, and Christ had seven horns of power and ability to loose them, and fulfil the things contained in it, and seven eyes to look into it, and discover and reveal what is in it, so here are seven words made use of, to express the praise that was due unto him; a like number is used by the angels in ( Revelation 7:12); and when he is said to be worthy to receive these, it is not to be understood of his receiving the things themselves, but of the praise of them; and that these are to be observed in him, and to be ascribed to him: power belongs to him, as he is the mighty God; and as the Saviour and Redeemer of his people; and as risen from the dead, and as exalted at God's right hand, and made or declared Lord and Christ; having all power in heaven and in earth: riches may well be ascribed to him, who has all the perfections of deity in him; whose are the heavens and the earth, and the fulness thereof; and who, as Mediator, is heir of all things, and has both the riches of grace and glory in his hands: wisdom also is his; he is wisdom itself, he is the only wise God; and he is the author of all wisdom, natural and spiritual; and, as Mediator, he has the spirit of wisdom and knowledge resting on him, and the treasures of both hid in him: and strength may be well attributed to him, which he has shown in making and supporting all things; in saving and redeeming his people with a mighty hand and outstretched arm; and in subduing and vanquishing all his and their enemies; and in giving strength to them to discharge their duty, resist temptations, oppose corruptions, and do their generation work: honour is due to him, as the Son of God, he being to be honoured equally as the Father; and who, as man and Mediator, is crowned with glory and honour: glory is what ought to be ascribed unto him, even the glory of true and proper deity, and also the glory of salvation; and who, as Mediator, had a glory promised him, and which was due unto him upon his having finished his work, and which he now enjoys: wherefore blessing is to be given to him, who is God over all, blessed for evermore, in himself and the perfections of his nature; in whom all spiritual blessings are, and in whom all the nations of the earth are blessed; and to whom praise and thanks are to be rendered, for the blessings of pardoning, justifying, and redeeming grace, and for all other.

    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 __________________________________________________________________

    12.
    Power, etc. Rev., "the power." Compare the ascription in chapter iv. 11, on which see note, and notice that each separate particular there has the article, while here it is attached only to the first, the power, the one article including all the particulars, as if they formed but one word. On the doxologies, see on chapter i. 6.

    Riches (plouton). Not limited to spiritual riches, but denoting the fulness of every gift of God. Jas. i. 17; Acts xvii. 25. Only here in a doxology. Blessing (eulogian). See on the kindred word eujloghtov blessed, I Peter i. 3.
