_ _ fromGreek, “out of.”

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 14:2

And I heard a sound out of heaven — Sounding clearer and clearer: first, at a distance, as the sound of many waters or thunders; and afterwards, being nearer, it was as of harpers harping on their harps. It sounded vocally and instrumentally at once.
