Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 17:17

_ _ hath put — the prophetical past tense for the future.

_ _ fulfilGreek, “do,” or “accomplish.” The Greek,poiesai,” is distinct from that which is translated, “fulfilled,” Greek,telesthesontai,” below.

_ _ his willGreek, “his mind,” or purpose; while they think only of doing their own purpose.

_ _ to agree — literally, “to do” (or accomplish) one mind” or “purpose.” A and Vulgate omit this clause, but B supports it.

_ _ the words of God — foretelling the rise and downfall of the beast; Greek,hoi logoi,” in A, B, and Andreas. English Version reading is Greek,ta rhemata,” which is not well supported. No mere articulate utterances, but the efficient words of Him who is the Word: Greek,logos.”

_ _ fulfilled — (Revelation 10:7).

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 17:17

(34) For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

(34) A reason rendered from the chief efficient cause, which is the providence of God, by which alone John by inversion of order affirms to have come to pass, both that the kings should execute on the harlot that which pleased God, and which he declared in the verse before: and also that by one consent and counsel, they should give their kingdom to the beast, etc. (Revelation 17:13-14) for as these being blinded have before depended on the call of the beast that lifts up the harlot, so it is said, that afterward it shall come to pass, that they shall turn back, and shall fall away from her, when their hearts shall be turned into better state by the grace and mercy of God.
