    King James Bible - Revelation 6:13

    And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

    World English Bible

    The stars of the sky fell to the earth, like a fig
    tree dropping its unripe figs when it is shaken by a great wind.

    Douay-Rheims - Revelation 6:13

    And the stars from heaven fell upon the earth, as the fig
    tree casteth its green figs when it is shaken by a great wind:

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, even as a fig-tree casteth its untimely figs, when it is shaken by a mighty
    wind.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:13

    Y las estrellas del cielo cayeron sobre la tierra; como la higuera echa sus higos cuando es movida de gran viento.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 6:13

    Verse 13. The
    stars of heaven] The gods and goddesses, demi- gods, and deified heroes, of their poetical and mythological heaven, were prostrated indiscriminately, and lay as useless as the figs or fruit of a tree shaken down before ripe by a tempestuous wind.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. And the
    stars of heaven fell unto the earth , etc.] All the other inferior deities lost their esteem, worship, and honour; for the idol temples being now opened, the idols and statues were exposed to the common people, and were found to be stuffed with hay and straw, which brought them into great contempt f203 . Moreover, as stars sometimes signify the ministers of the Gospel in the Christian church, ( Revelation 1:20), and sometimes the priests in the Jewish church, ( Daniel 8:10); so they may here likewise include the idolatrous priests among the Heathens, who were discharged and removed by Constantine, and had their posts and profits taken away from them; yea, Maximinus, an Heathen emperor, or tyrant, being beaten by Licinius, who was then Constantine's colleague, killed many of the priests and prophets of his gods, which were formerly had in great admiration by him, as deceivers and betrayers of him, by whose oracles he was animated to the war f204 . And in like manner Licinius put to death the priests and prophets of the new idol at Antioch f205 . Even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind ; which figs being young and green, and not fixed, fall off easily, and in great numbers, when a blustering wind beats upon them; and so the rabble of Pagan deities, and idolatrous priests, were easily, and in great numbers, removed through the power of Constantine, which carried all before it.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-17 - When the sixth seal was opened, there was a great
    earthquake. The foundations of churches and states would be terribly shaken. Such bol figurative descriptions of great changes abound in the prophecies of Scripture; for these events are emblems, and declare the end of the world and the day of judgment. Dread and terror would seize on all sorts of men. Neither grandeur, riches, valour, nor strength, can support men at that time. They would be glad to be no more seen; yea to have no longer any being. Though Christ be a Lamb, he can be angry and the wrath of the Lamb is exceedingly dreadful; for if the Redeeme himself, who appeases the wrath of God, be our enemy, where shall we find a friend to plead for us? As men have their day of opportunity and their seasons of grace, so God has his day of righteous wrath. I seems that the overthrow of the paganism of the Roman empire is her meant. The idolaters are described as hiding themselves in their den and secret caves, and vainly seeking to escape ruin. In such a day when the signs of the times show those who believe in God's word, tha the King of kings is approaching, Christians are called to a decide course, and to a bold confession of Christ and his truth before their fellowmen. Whatever they may have to endure, the short contempt of ma is to be borne, rather than that shame which is everlasting __________________________________________________________________
