Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 19:16

_ _ “His name written on His vesture and on His thigh,” was written partly on the vesture, partly on the thigh itself, at the part where in an equestrian figure the robe drops from the thigh. The thigh symbolizes Christ’s humanity as having come, after the flesh, from the loins of David, and now appearing as the glorified “Son of man.” On the other hand, His incommunicable divine name, “which no man knew,” is on His head (Revelation 19:12), [Menochius].

_ _ KING OF KINGS — Compare Revelation 17:14, in contrast with Revelation 19:17, the beast being in attempted usurpation a king of kings, the ten kings delivering their kingdom to him.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 19:11-21.
