    :3,5

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:10

    Y tenían colas semejantes a las de los escorpiones, y tenían en sus colas aguijones, y su potestad era de hacer dao a los hombres cinco meses.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 9:10

    Verse 10. They had tails like unto
    scorpions] This may refer to the consequences of their victories. They infected the conquered with their pernicious doctrines.

    Their power was to hurt men five months.] The locusts make their principal ravages during the five summer months. But probably these may be prophetic months, as above, in Revelation ix. 5 - 150 years.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 10. And they had tails like unto scorpions , etc.] Locusts are said to have the tail of a serpent, and of the vipers of the earth f284 ; (see Gill on Revelation 9:3), (see Gill on Revelation 9:5). And there were stings in their tails; either in the baser sort of them, the Saracens and Papists; or in their doctrines, the prophet being the tail, ( Isaiah 9:15); with which both Mahomet, who set himself up for a prophet, and the Romish clergy, who set up their decrees and unwritten traditions above the word of God, have poisoned and destroyed multitudes of souls: and their power [was] to hurt men five months ; (see Gill on Revelation 9:5).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-12 - Upon sounding the
    fifth trumpet, a star fell from heaven to the earth Having ceased to be a minister of Christ, he who is represented by thi star becomes the minister of the devil; and lets loose the powers of hell against the churches of Christ. On the opening of the bottomles pit, there arose a great smoke. The devil carries on his designs be blinding the eyes of men, by putting out light and knowledge, an promoting ignorance and error. Out of this smoke there came a swarm of locusts, emblems of the devil's agents, who promote superstition idolatry, error, and cruelty. The trees and the grass, the tru believers, whether young or more advanced, should be untouched. But secret poison and infection in the soul, should rob many others of purity, and afterwards of peace. The locusts had no power to hurt thos who had the seal of God. God's all-powerful, distinguishing grace wil keep his people from total and final apostacy. The power is limited to a short season; but it would be very sharp. In such events the faithfu share the common calamity, but from the pestilence of error they migh and would be safe. We collect from Scripture, that such errors were to try and prove the Christians, 1Co 11:19. And early writers plainl refer this to the first great host of corrupters who overspread the Christian church.
