Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 17:2

_ _ drunk withGreek, “owing to.” It cannot be pagan Rome, but papal Rome, if a particular seat of error be meant, but I incline to think that the judgment (Revelation 18:2) and the spiritual fornication (Revelation 18:3), though finding their culmination in Rome, are not restricted to it, but comprise the whole apostate Church, Roman, Greek, and even Protestant, so far as it has been seduced from its “first love” (Revelation 2:4) to Christ, the heavenly Bridegroom, and given its affections to worldly pomps and idols. The woman (Revelation 12:1) is the congregation of God in its purity under the Old and New Testament, and appears again as the Bride of the Lamb, the transfigured Church prepared for the marriage feast. The woman, the invisible Church, is latent in the apostate Church, and is the Church militant; the Bride is the Church triumphant.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 17:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 17:2

With whom the kings of the earth — Both ancient and modern, for many ages. Have committed fornication — By partaking of her idolatry and various wickedness. And the inhabitants of the earth — The common people. Have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication — No wine can more thoroughly intoxicate those who drink it, than false zeal does the followers of the great whore.
