Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 11:5

_ _ will hurtGreek, “wishes,” or “desires to hurt them.”

_ _ fire ... devoureth — (Compare Jeremiah 5:14; Jeremiah 23:29).

_ _ out of their mouth — not literally, but God makes their inspired denunciations of judgment to come to pass and devour their enemies.

_ _ if any man will hurt them — twice repeated, to mark the immediate certainty of the accomplishment.

_ _ in this manner — so in like manner as he tries to hurt them (compare Revelation 13:10). Retribution in kind.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 11:3-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 11:5

If any would kill them — As the Israelites would have done Moses and Aaron, Numbers 16:41. He must be killed thus — By that devouring fire.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 11:5

(9) And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

(9) The power and surety of the holy ministry, which is truly evangelical, is declared both in earth and in heaven, protecting the administers of it, and destroying its enemies, in this verse, divine power, most mightily showing itself forth in heaven, earth and the sea in (Revelation 11:6) as it is described in (2 Corinthians 10:4) according to the promise of Christ in (Mark 16:17). This is the second place (as I said before) of the combats which the servants of God must undergo in the executing of their calling, and of the things that follow the same combats or conflicts are these things to overcome, in these two verses: to be overcome and killed in (Revelation 11:7) After the slaughter follow these things, that the carcasses of the godly, laid abroad in (Revelation 11:8) and being unburied, are scorned, together with cursing and bitter abhorrance (Revelation 11:9) and that therefore congratulations are publicly and privately made in (Revelation 11:10).
