Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 10:3

_ _ as ... lion — Christ, whom the angel represents, is often so symbolized (Revelation 5:5, “the Lion of the tribe of Juda”).

_ _ seven thundersGreek,the seven thunders.” They form part of the Apocalyptic symbolism; and so are marked by the article as well known. Thus thunderings marked the opening of the seventh seal (Revelation 8:1, Revelation 8:5); so also at the seventh vial (Revelation 16:17, Revelation 16:18). Wordsworth calls this the prophetic use of the article;the thunders, of which more hereafter.” Their full meaning shall be only known at the grand consummation marked by the seventh seal, the seventh trumpet (Revelation 11:19), and the seventh vial.

_ _ uttered theirGreek,spake their own voices”; that is, voices peculiarly their own, and not now revealed to men.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 10:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 10:3

And he cried — Uttering the words set down, Revelation 10:6. And while he cried, or was crying — At the same instant. Seven thunders uttered their voices — In distinct words, each after the other. Those who spoke these words were glorious, heavenly powers, whose voice was as the loudest thunder.
