Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 13:5

_ _ blasphemies — So Andreas reads. B reads “blasphemy.” A, “blasphemous things” (compare Daniel 7:8; Daniel 11:25).

_ _ power — “authority”; legitimate power (Greek,exousia”).

_ _ to continueGreek,poiesai,” “to act,” or “work.” B reads, “to make war” (compare Revelation 13:4). But A, C, Vulgate, Syriac, and Andreas omit “war.”

_ _ forty ... two month — (See on Revelation 11:2, Revelation 11:3; see on Revelation 12:6).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 13:5

(9) And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him (10) to continue forty [and] two months.

(9) The second part containing a history of the acts of the beast, as I said See Revelation 13:1". The history of them is concluded in two points: the beginning, and the manner of them. The beginning is the gift of the dragon, who put and inspired into the beast both his impiety against the godly and those that were of the household of faith, in (Revelation 13:5) The manner of the acts or actions done, is of two sorts, both impious in mind, and blasphemous in speech against God, his Church and the godly in (Revelation 13:6) and also most cruel and injurious in deeds, even such as were done of most raging enemies, and of most insolent and proud conquerors in (Revelation 13:7)

(10) Namely his actions, and manner of dealing. As concerning those two and forty months, I have spoken of them before. See Revelation 12:6
