    Re 19:4

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:14

    Y los cuatro animales decían: Amn. Y los veinticuatro ancianos cayeron sobre sus rostros , y adoraron al que vive para siempre jams.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 5:14

    Verse 14. The four
    beasts said, Amen.] Acknowledged that what was attributed to Christ was his due.

    The four and twenty elders] The word eikositessarev, twenty- four, is wanting in the most eminent MSS. and versions.

    Fell down and worshipped] epesan kai prosekunhsan? Fell down on their knees, and then prostrated themselves before the throne. This is the eastern method of adoration: first, the person worshiping fell down on his knees; and then, bowing down touched the earth with his forehead. This latter act was prostration.

    Him that liveth for ever] This clause is wanting in ABC, thirty-seven others, Syriac, Arabic, Coptic, AEthiopic, some copies of the Slavonic, Itala, and Vulgate; and in Andreas, and Arethas, ancient commentators on this book. It is also wanting in some editions, and is undoubtedly spurious.

    Griesbach has left this and the above twenty-four out of the text.

    Now follow the least intelligible parts of this mysterious book, on which so much has been written, and so much in vain. It is natural for man to desire to be wise; and the more difficult the subject the more it is studied, and the hope of finding out something by which the world and the Church might be profited, has caused the most eminently learned men to employ their talents and consume their time on these abstruse prophecies. But of what use has all this learned and well- meant labour been to mankind? Can hypothesis explain prophecy, and conjecture find a basis on which faith can rest? And what have we better in all attempts hitherto made to explain the mysteries of this book?


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. And the four beasts said, Amen , etc.] Giving their assent to what the angels and every creature said, and expressing their desires and wishes that so it might be, and also their faith, that so it was, and would be: and the four [and] twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever ; either God the Father, who sat upon the throne, and is so described, ( Revelation 4:9,10); or else the Lamb who had been slain, and was now alive, and lives for evermore; or both of them, for the Alexandrian copy, the Complutensian edition, and the Syriac and Arabic versions, omit the words him that liveth for ever and ever; and leave it to be understood of either of them, or both; and the Ethiopic version reads, and the elders worshipped him; as the four living creatures and four and twenty elders led the chorus, and begun the song, so they close it, as being the persons more immediately concerned in the death and sufferings of the Lamb, and redemption by him, and in the sealed book, and in the things contained in it; the seals of which are next opened, and an account is given of them in some following chapters.

    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 __________________________________________________________________
