Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 1:15

_ _ fine brassGreek,chalcolibanus,” derived by some from two Greek words, “brass” and “frankincense”; derived by Bochart from Greek,chalcos,” “brass,” and Hebrew,libbeen,” “to whiten”; hence, “brass,” which in the furnace has reached a white heat. Thus it answers to “burnished (flashing, or glowing) brass,” Ezekiel 1:7; Revelation 10:1, “His feet as pillars of fire.” Translate, “Glowing brass, as if they had been made fiery (red-hot) in a furnace.” The feet of the priests were bare in ministering in the sanctuary. So our great High Priest here.

_ _ voice as ... many waters — (Ezekiel 43:2); in Daniel 10:6, it is “like the voice of a multitude.” As the Bridegroom’s voice, so the bride’s, Revelation 14:2; Revelation 19:6; Ezekiel 1:24, the cherubim, or redeemed creation. His voice, however, is here regarded in its terribleness to His foes. Contrast Song of Songs 2:8; Song of Songs 5:2, with which compare Revelation 3:20.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 1:9-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 1:15

And his feet like fine brass — Denoting his stability and strength. As if they burned in a furnace — As if having been melted and refined, they were still red hot. And his voice — To the comfort of his friends, and the terror of his enemies. As the voice of many waters — Roaring aloud, and bearing down all before them.
