Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 13:17

_ _ And — So A, B, and Vulgate read. C, Irenaeus, 316, Coptic, and Syriac omit it.

_ _ might buyGreek, “may be able to buy.”

_ _ the mark, or the nameGreek, “the mark (namely), the name of the beast.” The mark may be, as in the case of the sealing of the saints in the forehead, not a visible mark, but symbolical of allegiance. So the sign of the cross in Popery. The Pope’s interdict has often shut out the excommunicate from social and commercial intercourse. Under the final Antichrist this shall come to pass in its most violent form.

_ _ number of his name — implying that the name has some numerical meaning.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 13:11-18.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 13:17

And that no man might (25) buy or sell, save he that had the (26) mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

(25) That is, have any trade or dealings with men, but only those who have this annointing and consecration of Clearkely shaving of the head, as they call it, read Gratian "de Consecratione, distincione tertia.c.omnes.cap spiritus, etc." of these matters.

(26) Here the false prophets require three things, set down in the order of their greatness, a character, a name, and the number of the name. The meaning is, that man that does not have their first annointing and clerical shaving of the head: secondly holy orders, by which is communicated the name of the beast: or finally has not attained that high degree of pontifical knowledge, and of the law (as they call it) canonical, and has not made up in account and cast the number of the mysteries of it: for in these things consists the number of the name of the beast. This is excellently set forth in the next verse.
