Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 16:21

_ _ fellGreek, “descends.”

_ _ upon menGreek,the men.”

_ _ and men blasphemed God — not those struck who died, but the rest. Unlike the result in the case of Jerusalem (Revelation 11:13), where “the remnant ... affrighted ... gave glory to the God of heaven.”

_ _ wasGreek, “is.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 16:21

And a great hail falleth out of heaven — From which there was no defence. From the earthquake men would fly into the fields; but here also they are met by the hail: nor were they secure if they returned into the houses, when each hail — stone weighed sixty pounds.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 16:21

(30) And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, [every stone] about the weight of a (c) talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

(30) The manner of the particular execution, most evidently testifying the wrath of God by the original and greatness of it: the event of which is the same with that which is in (Revelation 9:12) and that which has been mentioned in this chapter, from the execution of the fourth angel till now, that is to say, an incorrigible pertinency of the world in their rebellion, and a heart that cannot repent; (Revelation 16:9-10).

(c) About the weight of a talent, and a talent was sixty pounds, that is, six hundred groats, by which is signified a marvellous and strange weight.
