Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 10:5

_ _ lifted up his hand — So A and Vulgate read. But B, C, Aleph, Syriac, and Coptic, “... his right hand.” It was customary to lift up the hand towards heaven, appealing to the God of truth, in taking a solemn oath. There is in this part of the vision an allusion to Daniel 12:1-13. Compare Revelation 10:4, with Daniel 12:4, Daniel 12:9; and Revelation 10:5, Revelation 10:6, end, with Daniel 12:7. But there the angel clothed in linen, and standing upon the waters, sware “a time, times, and a half” were to interpose before the consummation; here, on the contrary, the angel standing with his left foot on the earth, and his right upon the sea, swears there shall be time no longer. There he lifted up both hands to heaven; here he has the little book now open (whereas in Daniel the book is sealed) in his left hand (Revelation 10:2), and he lifts up only his right hand to heaven.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 10:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 10:5

And the angel — This manifestation of things to come under the trumpet of the seventh angel hath a twofold introduction: first, the angel speaks for God, Revelation 10:7; then Christ speaks for himself, Revelation 11:3. The angel appeals to the prophets of former times; Christ, to his own two witnesses. Whom I saw standing upon the earth and upon the sea, lifted up his right hand toward heaven — As yet the dragon was in heaven. When he is cast thence he brings the third and most dreadful woe on the earth and sea: so that it seems as if there would be no end of calamities. Therefore the angel comprises, in his posture and in his oath, both heaven, sea, and earth, and makes on the part of the eternal God and almighty Creator, a solemn protestation, that he will assert his kingly authority against all his enemies. He lifted up his right hand toward heaven — The angel in Daniel, Daniel 12:7, (not improbably the same angel,) lifted up both his hands.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 10:5

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth (b) lifted up his hand to heaven,

(b) This was a gesture used of one that swears, which men do now use.
