Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 22:9

_ _ Literally, “See not”; the abruptness of the phrase marking the angel’s abhorrence of the thought of his being worshipped however indirectly. Contrast the fallen angel’s temptation to Jesus, “Fall down and worship me” (Matthew 4:9).

_ _ for — A, B, Vulgate, Syriac, Coptic, Andreas, and Cyprian omit “for”; which accords with the abrupt earnestness of the angel’s prohibition of an act derogatory to God.

_ _ and of — “and (the fellow servant) of thy brethren.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 22:6-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 22:9

See thou do it not — The expression in the original is short and elliptical, as is usual in showing vehement aversion.
