Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 11:7

_ _ finished their testimony — The same verb is used of Paul’s ending his ministry by a violent death.

_ _ the beast that ascended out of the bottomless pitGreek, “the wild beast ... the abyss.” This beast was not mentioned before, yet he is introduced as “the beast,” because he had already been described by Daniel (Daniel 7:3, Daniel 7:11), and he is fully so in the subsequent part of the Apocalypse, namely, Revelation 13:1; Revelation 17:8. Thus, John at once appropriates the Old Testament prophecies; and also, viewing his whole subject at a glance, mentions as familiar things (though not yet so to the reader) objects to be described hereafter by himself. It is a proof of the unity that pervades all Scripture.

_ _ make war against them — alluding to Daniel 7:21, where the same is said of the little horn that sprang up among the ten horns on the fourth beast.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 11:3-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 11:7

And when they shall have finished their testimony — Till then they are invincible. The wild beast — Hereafter to be described. That ascendeth — First out of the sea, Revelation 13:1, and then out of the bottomless pit, Revelation 17:8. Shall make war with them — It is at his last ascent, not out of the sea, but the bottomless pit, that the beast makes war upon the two witnesses. And even hereby is fixed the time of "treading the holy city," and of the "two witnesses." That time ends after the ascent of the beast out of the abyss, and yet before the fulfilling of the mystery. And shall conquer them — The fire no longer proceeding out of their mouth when they have finished their work. And kill them — These will be among the last martyrs, though not the last of all.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 11:7

(10) And when they shall have (c) finished their testimony, (11) the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall (12) overcome them, and kill them.

(10) That is, when they have spent those 1260 years mentioned in (Revelation 11:2-3) in publishing their testimony according to their office.

(c) When they have done their message.

(11) Of which after Chapter 13, that beast is the Roman Empire, made long ago of civil, ecclesiastical: the chief head of which was then Boniface the eighth, as I said before: who lifted up himself in so great arrogancy, (says the author of "Falsciculus temporum") that he called himself, Lord of the whole world, as well in temporal causes, as in spiritual: There is a document of that matter, written by the same Boniface most arrogantly, shall I say, or most wickedly, "Ca. unam sanctam, extra de majoritate & obedientia." In the sixth of the Decretals (which is from the same author) many things are found of the same argument.

(12) He shall persecute most cruelly the holy men, and put them to death, and shall wound and pierce through with cursings, both their names and writings. That this was done to very many godly men, by Boniface and others, the histories do declare, especially since the time that the odious and condemned name amongst the multitude, first of the brethren Waldonenses or Lugdunenses, then also of the Fraticels, was pretended, that good men might with more approbation be massacred.
