    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:16

    y decían a los montes y a las piedras: Caed sobre nosotros, y escondednos de la cara de aquel que est sentado sobre el trono, y de la ira del Cordero;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 6:16

    Verse 16. Said to the
    mountains and rocks] Expressions which denote the strongest perturbation and alarm. They preferred any kind of death to that which they apprehended from this most awful revolution.

    From the face of him that sitteth on the throne] They now saw that all these terrible judgments came from the Almighty; and that Christ, the author of Christianity, was now judging, condemning, and destroying them for their cruel persecutions of his followers.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. And said to the mountains and rocks, fall on us , etc.] They chose death rather than life. Dioclesian being invited by Constantine to a marriage feast, excused himself by reason of his old age; but receiving threatening letters, the historian says, in which he was charged with having favoured Maxentius, and with favouring Maximinus, he poisoned himself; and others of the emperors are said to lay violent hands upon themselves: and hide us from the face of him that sitteth upon the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb ; thus they owned the proper deity, and almighty power of God, and Christ, which they dreaded; so Maximinus being afflicted with a most horrible disease, of which he died, asked pardon of the God of the Christians, and owned that he suffered justly, for his reproaches of Christ Licinius, who sometimes pretended to be a Christian, and joined with Constantine, but afterwards revolted and fought against him, being conquered and taken, was put to death; at which time he, and they that suffered death with him, confessed that the God of Constantine was the only true God f213 . This passage shows, that Christ, God's firstborn, is higher than the kings of the earth; yea, that he is equal with him that sits upon the throne, with God his Father, since his wrath is equally dreaded as his; and that, though he is a Lamb, mild, meek, and gentle, yet there is wrath, fury, and indignation in him, against his enemies, which is very dreadful and intolerable; (see Psalm 2:12).

    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 __________________________________________________________________
