Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 11:12

_ _ they — so A, C, and Vulgate. But B, Coptic, Syriac, and Andreas read, “I heard.”

_ _ a cloudGreek, “the cloud”; which may be merely the generic expression for what we are familiar with, as we say “the clouds.” But I prefer taking the article as definitely alluding to THE cloud which received Jesus at His ascension, Acts 1:9 (where there is no article, as there is no allusion to a previous cloud, such as there is here). As they resembled Him in their three and a half years’ witnessing, their three and a half days lying in death (though not for exactly the same time, nor put in a tomb as He was), so also in their ascension is the translation and transfiguration of the sealed of Israel (Revelation 7:1-8), and the elect of all nations, caught up out of the reach of the Antichristian foe. In Revelation 14:14-16, He is represented as sitting on a white cloud.

_ _ their enemies beheld them — and were thus openly convicted by God for their unbelief and persecution of His servants; unlike Elijah’s ascension formerly, in the sight of friends only. The Church caught up to meet the Lord in the air, and transfigured in body, is justified by her Lord before the world, even as the man-child (Jesus) was “caught up unto God and His throne” from before the dragon standing ready to devour the woman’s child as soon as born.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 11:12

And I heard a great voice — Designed for all to hear. And they went up to heaven, and their enemies beheld them — who had not taken notice of their rising again; by which some had been convinced before.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 11:12

And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, (22) Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; (23) and their enemies beheld them.

(22) They were called by God into heaven, and taken out of this wicked world, into the heavenly Church, which also lies hidden here in the earth, to exercise their calling secretly: of whom this wretched world was unworthy; (Hebrews 11:38). For the church of the wicked is by comparison called the earth, or the world: and the Church of the godly, heaven. As it was in ancient times among the godly Israelites: so among the Jews in the days of Manasseh and other kings, when the earth refused the heirs of heaven, we read that they lay hidden as heaven in the earth.

(23) Yet they could not hinder the secret ones of the Lord (as the Psalmist called them) (Psalms 83:3) but they prospered in his work.
