Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 13:6

_ _ opened ... mouth — The usual formula in the case of a set speech, or series of speeches. Revelation 13:6, Revelation 13:7 expand Revelation 13:5.

_ _ blasphemy — So B and Andreas. A and C read “blasphemies.”

_ _ and them — So Vulgate, Coptic, Andreas, and Primasius read. A and C omit “and”: “them that dwell (literally, ‘tabernacle’) in heaven,” mean not only angels and the departed souls of the righteous, but believers on earth who have their citizenship in heaven, and whose true life is hidden from the Antichristian persecutor in the secret of God’s tabernacle. See on Revelation 12:12; see on John 3:7.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 13:1-10.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 13:6

And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, (11) and his tabernacle, (12) and them that dwell in heaven.

(11) That is, the holy Church, the true house of the living God.

(12) That is, the godly who as a group hid themselves from his cruelty. For this bloody beast charged those holy souls falsely with innumerable accusations for the name of Christ as we read in Justin Martyr, Tertullian, Arnobius, Minutius, Eusebius, Augustine and others: whose example the latter times followed most diligently, in destroying the flock of Christ: and we in our own memory have found by experience, to our incredible grief. Concerning heaven, see in (Revelation 11:12)
