Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 14:15

_ _ Thrust inGreek, “Send.” The angel does not command the “Son of man” (Revelation 14:14), but is the mere messenger announcing to the Son the will of God the Father, in whose hands are kept the times and the seasons.

_ _ thy sickle — alluding to Mark 4:29, where also it is “sendeth the sickle.” The Son sends His sickle-bearing angel to reap the righteous when fully ripe.

_ _ harvest — the harvest crop. By the harvest-reaping the elect righteous are gathered out; by the vintage the Antichristian offenders are removed out of the earth, the scene of Christ’s coming kingdom. The Son of man Himself, with a golden crown, is introduced in the harvest-gathering of the elect, a mere angel in the vintage (Revelation 14:18-20).

_ _ is ripe — literally, “is dried.” Ripe for glory.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 14:13-20.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 14:15

And another angel came out of the temple — "Which is in heaven," Revelation 14:17. Out of which came the judgments of God in the appointed seasons.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 14:15

(13) And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

(13) Christ gives a commandment in this verse, and the angel executes it in (Revelation 14:16).
