Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 11:6

_ _ These ... powerGreek, “authorized power.”

_ _ it rain notGreek,huetos brechee,” “rain shower not,” literally, “moisten” not (the earth).

_ _ smite ... with all plaguesGreek, “with (literally, ‘in’) every plague.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 11:3-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 11:6

These have power — And they use that power. See Revelation 11:10. To shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophesying — During those "twelve hundred and sixty days." And have power over the waters — In and near Jerusalem. To turn them into blood — As Moses did those in Egypt. And to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will — This is not said of Moses or Elijah, or any mere man besides. And how is it possible to understand this otherwise than of two individual persons?
