Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 19:15

_ _ out of his mouth ... sword — (Revelation 1:16; Revelation 2:12, Revelation 2:16). Here in its avenging power, 2 Thessalonians 2:8, “consume with the Spirit of His mouth” (Isaiah 11:4, to which there is allusion here); not in its convicting and converting efficacy (Ephesians 6:17; Hebrews 4:12, Hebrews 4:13, where also the judicial keenness of the sword-like word is included). The Father commits the judgment to the Son.

_ _ he shall rule — The HE is emphatic, He and none other, in contrast to the usurpers who have misruled on earth. “Rule,” literally, “tend as a shepherd”; but here in a punitive sense. He, who would have shepherded them with pastoral rod and with the golden scepter of His love, shall dash them in pieces, as refractory rebels, with “a rod of iron.”

_ _ treadeth ... wine-press — (Isaiah 63:3).

_ _ of the fierceness and wrath — So Andreas reads. But A, B, Vulgate, Coptic, and Origen read, “of the fierceness (or boiling indignation) of the wrath,” omitting “and.”

_ _ Almighty — The fierceness of Christ’s wrath against His foes will be executed with the resources of omnipotence.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 19:11-21.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 19:15

And he shall rule them — Who are not slain by his sword. With a rod of iron — That is, if they will not submit to his golden sceptre. And he treadeth the wine press of the wrath of God — That is, he executes his judgments on the ungodly. This ruler of the nations was born (or appeared as such) immediately after the seventh angel began to sound. He now appears, not as a child, but as a victorious warrior. The nations have long ago felt his "iron rod," partly while the heathen Romans, after their savage persecution of the Christians, themselves groaned under numberless plagues and calamities, by his righteous vengeance; partly, while other heathens have been broken in pieces by those who bore the Christian name. For although the cruelty, for example, of the Spaniards in America, was unrighteous and detestable, yet did God therein execute his righteous judgment on the unbelieving nations; but they shall experience his iron rod as they never did yet, and then will they all return to their rightful Lord.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

(15) The effects of Christ prepared to fight, that with his mouth he strikes the Gentiles, rules and destroys.
