Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 10:2

_ _ he hadGreek, “Having.”

_ _ in his hand — in his left hand: as in Revelation 10:5 (see on Revelation 10:5), he lifts up his right hand to heaven.

_ _ a little book — a roll little in comparison with the “book” (Revelation 5:1) which contained the whole vast scheme of God’s purposes, not to be fully read till the final consummation. This other, a less book, contained only a portion which John was now to make his own (Revelation 10:9, Revelation 10:11), and then to use in prophesying to others. The New Testament begins with the word “book” (Greek,biblus”), of which “the little book” (Greek,biblaridion”) is the diminutive, “the little bible,” the Bible in miniature.

_ _ upon the sea ... earth — Though the beast with seven heads is about to arise out of the sea (Revelation 13:1), and the beast with two horns like a lamb (Revelation 13:11) out of the earth, yet it is but for a time, and that time shall no longer be (Revelation 10:6, Revelation 10:7) when once the seventh trumpet is about to sound; the angel with his right foot on the sea, and his left on the earth, claims both as God’s, and as about soon to be cleared of the usurper and his followers.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 10:2

And he had in his hand — His left hand: he swore with his right. He stood with his right foot on the sea, toward the west; his left, on the land, toward the east: so that he looked southward. And so St. John (as Patmos lies near Asia) could conveniently take the book out of his left hand. This sealed book was first in the right hand of him that sat on the throne: thence the Lamb took it, and opened the seals. And now this little book, containing the remainder of the other, is given opened, as it was, to St. John. From this place the Revelation speaks more clearly and less figuratively than before. And he set his right foot upon the sea — Out of which the first beast was to come. And his left foot upon the earth — Out of which was to come the second. The sea may betoken Europe; the earth, Asia; the chief theatres of these great things.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 10:2

And he had in his hand a (3) little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and [his] left [foot] on the earth,

(3) Namely, a special book of the affairs of God's Church: For the book that contains things belonging to the whole world, is said to be kept with the Creator (Revelation 5:1) but the book of the Church, with the Redeemer: and out of this book is taken the rest of the history of this Apocalypse.
