    SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:11

    Y tienen sobre sí un rey, que es el ngel del abismo, el cual tenía por nombre en hebraico, Abadn, y en griego, Apolin que quiere decir destructor .

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 9:11

    Verse 11. A king
    over them] A supreme head; some think Mohammed, some think Vespasian.

    The angel of the bottomless pit] The chief envoy of Satan.

    Abaddon] From dba abad, he destroyed.

    Apollyon.] From apo, intensive, and olluw, to destroy. The meaning is the same both in the Hebrew and Greek.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 11. And they had a king over them , etc.] Which natural locusts have not, ( Proverbs 30:27); by whom is meant the false prophet Mahomet, who was at the head of the Saracens, and led them on to commit the outrages they did; and is believed in by the Turks to this day, as the great prophet of God, and by them preferred to all prophets, not only to Moses, but to Jesus Christ; he is the king of the eastern locusts, as the pope of Rome is the king of the western ones; for the Romish antichrist reigns, or at least has reigned, over the kings of the earth, ( Revelation 17:17,18); [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit ; to whom the key of it was given, ( Revelation 9:1); whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon ; both which signify a destroyer; and are very applicable both to Mahomet, who by his imposture has been the cause of the destruction of multitudes of souls, as well as by his wars, and those of the Saracens and Turks, of the lives of millions, and of the ruin of many kingdoms, countries, cities, and towns. Abulpharagius f285 , an Arabic writer, relates, that in the times of the Chalif Al-walid, there was one Hejajus, who had caused to be slain, of the chief and illustrious men, an hundred and twenty thousand, besides others of the common people, and that fell in war; moreover, that there died in his prison fifty thousand men, and thirty thousand women: and the same writer reports f286 , that the famous Abu Moslem put to death six hundred thousand men, who were known, besides those that were unknown, and whom he slew in wars and battles: both these instances are taken notice of by Mr. Daubuz, who justly observes, that surely nothing can come near this Abaddon, but the beast, the son of perdition, ( 2 Thessalonians 2:3). And to him, the pope of Rome, may the name be truly applied, who has led thousands into perdition, and will go into it himself; and both he, and the false prophet, with the devil, will be east into the lake, which burns with fire and brimstone, and will be tormented for ever and ever, ( 2 Thessalonians 2:4 Revelation 17:8,11 20:10). Abaddon, with the Jews, is one of the habitations or apartments of hell f287 , because it destroys all; Apollyon is the same with Apollo, the god of the Heathens, who has his name from destroying f288 .

    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.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    11. They had a king
    over them (ecousin ejf' aujtwn basilea). Render, as Rev., they have over them as king. Compare Prov. xxx. 27. Hence distinguished from the natural locusts.

    In Hebrew (Ebraisti). Used only by John. Compare John v. 2; xix. 13, 17, 20; Apoc. xvi. 16.

    Abaddon. Meaning destruction. Compare Job xxvi. 6; xxviii. 22; Prov. xv. 11. Here the Destroyer, as is evident from the Greek equivalent Apolluwn Apollyon destroyer. Perdition is personified. It is after John's manner to give the Hebrew with the Greek equivalent. Compare John i. 38, 42; iv. 25; ix. 7; xi. 16, etc.
