    VERSE (10) -
    Ge 4:10 Ps 9:12 Lu 18:7,8 Heb 12:24

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:10

    Y clamaban a alta voz diciendo: ¿Hasta cundo, Seor, Santo y Verdadero, no juzgas y vengas nuestra sangre de los que moran en la tierra?

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 6:10

    Verse 10. And they
    cried with a loud voice] That is, their blood, like that of Hebel, cried for vengeance; for we are not to suppose that there was any thing like a vindictive spirit in those happy and holy souls who had shed their blood for the testimony of Jesus. We sometimes say Blood cries for blood; that is, in the order of Divine justice, every murderer, and every murdering persecutor, shall be punished.

    O Lord] o despothv? Sovereign Lord, supreme Ruler; one having and exercising unlimited and uncontrolled authority.

    Holy] In thy own nature, hating iniquity; And true] In all thy promises and threatenings; Dost thou not judge] The persecutors; And avenge our blood] Inflict signal punishment; On them that dwell on the earth?] Probably meaning the persecuting Jews; they dwelt epi thv ghv, upon that land, a form of speech by which Judea is often signified in the New Testament.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. And they cried with a loud voice , etc.] With great ardour and fervency, being very pressing and importunate; and which shows that they were awake, and not asleep, and that the soul does not sleep with the body in the grave, or is after the death of that in a state of insensibility and inactivity, as some imagine: saying, how long, O Lord, holy and true ; the person they address is either the Lamb in the midst of the throne, with whom they were, and under the shelter of whom they were safe and happy; or God the Father, who sat upon the throne, whom they call holy, because being so in his nature, and as appears in all his works, he could not but hate, and so revenge the evil that was done to them by their cruel persecutors; and whereas he is true to all his threatenings, as well as his promises, and faithful to every word of his, they doubted not but he would judge and avenge them of their enemies; but they seem desirous to know how long it would be first: saying, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth ? the men of the world, idolatrous persons, earthly princes, who had shed their blood; and which they desire not out of any sinful or malicious affection, but that the holiness and justice of God might appear, and also his truth and faithfulness in his promises to them, and threatenings to his enemies; and that God in all things might be glorified, and his church and people on earth might be supported and delivered; (see Job 24:12).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 9-11 - The sight the
    apostle beheld at the opening the fifth seal was very affecting. He saw the souls of the martyrs under the altar; at the foo of the altar in heaven, at the feet of Christ. Persecutors can onl kill the body; after that there is no more they can do; the soul lives God has provided a good place in the better world, for those who ar faithful unto death. It is not their own death, but the sacrifice of Christ, that gives them entrance into heaven. The cause in which the suffered, was for the word of God; the best any man can lay down his life for; faith in God's word, and the unshaken confession of tha faith. They commit their cause to Him to whom vengeance belongs. The Lord is the comforter of his afflicted servants, and precious is their blood in his sight. As the measure of the sin of persecutors is fillin up, so is the number of the persecuted, martyred servants of Christ When this is fulfilled, God will send tribulation to those who troubl them, and unbroken happiness and rest to those that are troubled.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    10. They
    cried (ekrazon). See on Mark v. 5.

    How long (ewv pote). Lit., until when. Compare Zech. i. 12.

    O Lord (o despothv). See on 2 Pet. ii. 1. Only here in Revelation. Addressed to God rather than to Christ, and breathing, as Professor Milligan remarks, "the feeling of Old Testament rather than of New Testament relation." Compare Acts iv. 24; Jude 4.

    True (alhqinov). See on John i. 9; Apoc. iii. 7.

    Judge (krineiv). Originally the verb means to separate; thence the idea of selection: to pick out, and so to discriminate or judge.

    Avenge (ekdikeiv). Compare Luke xviii. 3; Rom. xii. 19.

    On the earth (epi thv ghv). Earth, in Revelation, is generally to be understood of the ungodly earth.
