Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 15:6

_ _ having — So B reads. But A and C, read “who have”: not that they had them yet (compare Revelation 15:7), but they are by anticipation described according to their office.

_ _ linen — So B reads. But A, C, and Vulgate, “a stone.” On the principle that the harder reading is the one least likely to be an interpolation, we should read, “a stone pure (‘and’ is omitted in A, B, C, and Andreas), brilliant” (so the Greek): probably the diamond. With English Version, compare Acts 1:10; Acts 10:30.

_ _ golden girdles — resembling the Lord in this respect (Revelation 1:13).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 15:5-8.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 15:6

And the seven angels came out of the temple — As having received their instructions from the oracle of God himself. St. John saw them in heaven, Revelation 15:1, before they went into the temple. They appeared in habits like those the high priest wore when he went into the most holy place to consult the oracle. In this was the visible testimony of God's presence. Clothed in pure white linen — Linen is the habit of service and attendance. Pure — unspotted, unsullied. White — Or bright and shining, which implies much more than bare innocence. And having their breasts girt with golden girdles — In token of their high dignity and glorious rest.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 15:6

And the seven angels came out of the temple, having the (10) seven plagues, clothed in (11) pure and white linen, and having their breasts (12) girded with golden girdles.

(10) That is, commandments to inflict those seven plagues, by way of metonymy.

(11) Which was in old time a sign of the kingly or princely dignity.

(12) This girding was a sign of diligence, and the girdle of gold was a sign of sincerity and trustworthiness in taking in charge the commandments of God.
