    And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

    mountain and island were moved out of their places.

    Douay-Rheims - Revelation 6:14

    And the heaven departed as a book
    folded up: and every mountain, and the islands were moved out of their places.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every
    mountain and isle were moved out of their places.

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:14

    Y el cielo se apart como un libro que es envuelto; y todo monte e islas fueron movidas de sus lugares.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 6:14

    Verse 14. And the
    heaven departed as a scroll] The whole system of pagan and idolatrous worship, with all its spiritual, secular, and superstitious influence, was blasted, shrivelled up, and rendered null and void, as a parchment scroll when exposed to the action of a strong fire.

    And every mountain] All the props, supports, and dependencies of the empire, whether regal allies, tributary kings, dependent colonies, or mercenary troops, were all moved out of their places, so as to stand no longer in the same relation to that empire, and its worship, support, and maintenance, as they formerly did.

    And island] The heathen temples, with their precincts and enclosures, cut off from the common people, and into which none could come but the privileged, may be here represented by islands, for the same reasons.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together , etc.] The manner of writing formerly was on rolls of parchment; hence the word volume is used for a book, which, when rolled up, the writing within could not be seen, not a syllable nor letter of it. In like manner the Roman empire, as Pagan, which was like a large sheet, or rather like the expanse or firmament of the heaven, stretched out over all the earth, was now, as to the Paganism of it, rolled up together, so that there were no more Heathen gods, nor Heathen priests; no more idolatry, and idolatrous worship of that kind were to be seen, and not so much as the names of Heathen gods to be heard of in the empire. And every mountain and island were moved out of their places ; by every mountain may be meant the places of idolatrous worship, which were usually upon mountains; (see Jeremiah 3:6,23); which were now shut up, or demolished, or used for Christian worship; and every island being moved also may show, that Paganism was not only rooted out of the provinces of the empire upon the continent, but out of the islands also; and the ecclesiastical history of these times informs us, that there were Christian churches in the isles, which enjoyed the Gospel free of persecution and distress; as in the isles of Cyprus, Crete, the Cyclades, Sardinia, Siciiy, Corsica, and in ours of England, Scotland, and Ireland f206 .

    Mr. Daubuz thinks, that as mountains design the temples of idols, islands signify the revenues of them, which were now taken away, and applied to other uses.


    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 __________________________________________________________________
