Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 19:10

_ _ atGreek, “before.” John’s intending to worship the angel here, as in Revelation 22:8, on having revealed to him the glory of the new Jerusalem, is the involuntary impulse of adoring joy at so blessed a prospect. It forms a marked contrast to the sorrowful wonder with which he had looked on the Church in her apostasy as the harlot (Revelation 17:6). It exemplifies the corrupt tendencies of our fallen nature that even John, an apostle, should have all but fallen into “voluntary humility and worshipping of angels,” which Paul warns us against.

_ _ and of thy brethren — that is, a fellow servant of thy brethren.

_ _ have the testimony of Jesus — (See on Revelation 12:17).

_ _ the testimony of — that is, respecting Jesus.

_ _ is the spirit of prophecy — is the result of the same spirit of prophecy in you as in myself. We angels, and you apostles, all alike have the testimony of (bear testimony concerning) Jesus by the operation of one and the same Spirit, who enables me to show you these revelations and enables you to record them: wherefore we are fellow servants, not I your lord to be worshipped by you. Compare Revelation 22:9, “I am fellow servant of thee and of thy brethren the prophets”; whence the “FOR the testimony,” etc., here, may be explained as giving the reason for his adding “and (fellow servant) of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus.” I mean, of the prophets; “for it is of Jesus that thy brethren, the prophets, testify by the Spirit in them.” A clear condemnation of Romish invocation of saints as if they were our superiors to be adored.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 19:5-10.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 19:10

And I fell before his feet to worship him — It seems, mistaking him for the angel of the covenant. But he saith, See thou do it not — In the original, it is only, See not, with a beautiful abruptness. To pray to or worship the highest creature is flat idolatry. I am thy fellowservant and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus — I am now employed as your fellowservant, to testify of the Lord Jesus, by the same Spirit which inspired the prophets of old.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 19:10

(11) And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See [thou do it] not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the (c)testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of (d) Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

(11) The particular history of this verse is brought in by occasion, and as it were besides the purpose that John might make a public example of his own infirmity and of the modest sanctimony of the angel, who both renounced for himself the divine honours, and recalled all the servants of God, to the worship of him alone: as also (Revelation 22:8).

(c) Who are commanded to bear witness of Jesus.

(d) For Jesus is the mark that all the prophecies shoot at.
