Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 16:5

_ _ angel of the waters — that is, presiding over the waters.

_ _ O Lord — omitted by A, B, C, Vulgate, Syriac, Coptic, and Andreas.

_ _ and shalt be — A, B, C, Vulgate, and Andreas for this clause read, “(which art and wast) holy.” The Lord is now no longer He that shall come, for He is come in vengeance and therefore the third of the three clauses found in Revelation 1:4, Revelation 1:8; Revelation 4:8 is here and in Revelation 11:17 omitted.

_ _ judged thus — literally, “these things.” “Thou didst inflict this judgment.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 16:1-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 16:5

The Gracious one — So he is styled when his judgments are abroad, and that with a peculiar propriety. In the beginning of the book he is termed "The Almighty." In the time of his patience, he is praised for his power, which otherwise might then be less regarded. In the time of his taking vengeance, for his mercy. Of his power there could then be no doubt.
