    King James Bible - Revelation 6:11

    And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

    World English Bible

    A
    long white robe was given to each of them. They were told that they should rest yet for a while, until their fellow servants and their brothers, who would also be killed even as they were, should complete their course.

    Douay-Rheims - Revelation 6:11

    And white
    robes were given to every one of them one; and it was said to them, that they should rest for a little time, till their fellow servants, and their brethren, who are to be slain, even as they, should be filled up.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And white
    robes were given to every one of them; and it was said to them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow-servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

    Re 3:4,5; 7:9,14

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:11

    Y les fueron dadas sendas ropas blancas, y les fue dicho que aun reposasen todavía un poco de tiempo, hasta que sus compaeros consiervos, sus hermanos, que tambin habían de ser muertos como ellos fuesen cumplidos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 6:11

    Verse 11. White
    robes] The emblems of purity, innocence, and triumph.

    They should rest yet for a little season] This is a declaration that, when the cup of the iniquity of the Jews should be full, they should then be punished in a mass. They were determined to proceed farther, and God permits them so to do; reserving the fullness of their punishment till they had filled up the measure of their iniquity. If this book was written before the destruction of Jerusalem, as is most likely, then this destruction is that which was to fall upon the Jews; and the little time or season was that which elapsed between their martyrdom, or the date of this book, and the final destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans, under Vespasian and his son Titus, about A.D. 70. What follows may refer to the destruction of the heathen Roman empire.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. And white robes were given to everyone of them , etc.] The Alexandrian copy, and some others, read in the singular number, a white robe, and so does the Syriac version; as a token of their innocence, that they did not suffer, or were slain, for any capital crime or immorality they were guilty of; and of their purity and perfection they now enjoyed; as also of that spiritual delight and pleasure, which was unspeakable and full of glory, they now had in the presence of God and Christ; and in short, of that happiness and glory which souls in a separate state, before the resurrection morn, are partakers of; who besides the righteousness of Christ, comparable to fine linen clean and white, walk with Christ in white, in the shining robes of bliss and glory: and it was said unto them, that they should rest ; or have rest; eternal rest from all their toil and labour, from all their sorrows and sufferings of every kind, which rest remains for the people of God, and into which these were now entered; or that they should cease from expostulating and inquiring after the above manner, and rest satisfied and contented, exercising the graces of faith, hope, and patience, believing, looking, and waiting: yet for a little season ; either until the end of this persecution by Dioclesian, when vengeance would be taken of the Roman empire, and it would be no more as Pagan; or until the day of judgment, when full vengeance will be inflicted on the persecutors of the saints; and which is but a little while with God, with whom a thousand years is as one day, and in comparison of that eternity of blessedness glorified saints are partakers of: until their fellow servants also, and their brethren, that should be killed as they [were], should be fulfilled ; meaning either the rest of the saints that should suffer martyrdom in the: following part of this persecution; or those who should suffer under the Arian persecution, when the empire would become Christian; or under Rome Papal, and in all the persecutions of the apostasy, unto the end of that state: these are called fellow servants and brethren of the saints in heaven; for they all worship and serve the same God, and belong to the same family, in heaven and in earth; and the selfsame reason that is made use of to animate the saints below to courage, faith, and patience in suffering, ( 1 Peter 5:9), is used to keep up the expectation of the saints in heaven, of that vengeance that will be executed on their enemies, and to point out the time when it will be; and it may be observed, that the number of martyrs, or of those that shall suffer and die in the cause of Christ, and for his Gospel, is fixed and determined by God; and that number shall be perfected and completed, and when that is done, he will pour out all his wrath on them that have persecuted them and put them to death: and so the Arabic version renders it, that the number of their companions and brethren, and of those who are to be killed as they have been killed, is fulfilled; In the Apocrypha is written: 39 Which are departed from the shadow of the world, and have received glorious garments of the Lord. 40 Take thy number, O Sion, and shut up those of thine that are clothed in white, which have fulfilled the law of the Lord. 41 The number of thy children, whom thou longedst for, is fulfilled: beseech the power of the Lord, that thy people, which have been called from the beginning, may be hallowed. (2 Esdras 2) Now though this seal does not introduce any judgment to be executed on the Roman empire, as the others do; yet since it introduces all the martyrs with one united voice requiring vengeance on their blood, it may very well be considered as a step towards, and as making way for, the utter ruin of that empire: and which the next seal being opened brings on, and is a full answer to the cry of these souls.

    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

    11. White
    robes were given unto every one of them (edoqhsan ekastoiv stolai leukai). The best texts read ejdoqh aujtoiv eJkastw stolh leukh there was given them to each one a white robe. So Rev. Stolh is properly a long, flowing robe; a festive garment. Compare Mark xvi. 5; Luke xv. 22; xx. 46.

    Should rest (anapauswntai). See on Matt. xi. 28; 1 Pet. v. 14; compare chapter xiv. 13; Dan. xii. 13. Not merely rest from their crying for vengeance, but rest in peace.

    Fellow-servants. See Master in verse 10.

    Should be fulfilled (plhrwsontai). Completed in number. See Col. ii. 10. Some texts read plhrwswsin shall have fulfilled their course.
