REVELATION OF ST. JOHN THE DIVINE - Chapter 16 - Verse 18

Verse 18. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings. Accompanying the voice that was heard from the throne. See Barnes "Re 4:5; Re 11:19 ".

 

And there was a great earthquake, etc. See Barnes "Re 6:12"; See Barnes "Re 11:19".

The meaning is, that a judgment followed as if the world were shaken by an earthquake, or which would be properly represented by that.

So mighty an earthquake, and so great. All this is intensive, and is designed to represent the severity of the judgment that would follow.

{c} "city" Re 14:8 {d} "cup" Isa 51:17,23; Jer 25:15,16
