REVELATION OF ST. JOHN THE DIVINE - Chapter 15 - Verse 6

Verse 6. And the seven angels. See Barnes on "Re 15:1".

 

Came out of the temple. Were seen to come from the temple; that is, from the immediate presence of God.

Having the seven plagues. See Barnes on "Re 15:1".

Each one entrusted with a single "plague" to be executed upon the earth. The meaning here is, that they were designated or appointed to execute those plagues in judgments. The symbols of their office—the golden vials—were given to them afterwards, Re 15:7.

Clothed in pure and white linen. The emblem of holiness—the common representation in regard to the heavenly inhabitants. See Barnes on "Re 3:4; Re 7:13 ".

Compare Mt 17:2; Lu 9:29; Mr 16:5.

 

And having their breasts girded with golden girdles. See Barnes on "Re 1:13".

The meaning is, that they were attired in a manner befitting their rank and condition.
