Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 5:12

_ _ to receive powerGreek,the power.” The remaining six (the whole being seven, the number for perfection and completeness) are all, as well as “power,” ranged under the one Greek article, to mark that they form one complete aggregate belonging to God and His co-equal, the Lamb. Compare Revelation 7:12, where each of all seven has the article.

_ _ riches — both spiritual and earthly.

_ _ blessing — ascribed praise: the will on the creature’s part, though unaccompanied by the power, to return blessing for blessing conferred [Alford].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 5:6-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 5:12

Worthy is the Lamb — The elders said, Revelation 5:9, "Worthy art thou." They were more nearly allied to him than the angels. To receive the power, &c. — This sevenfold applause answers the seven seals, of which the four former describe all visible, the latter all invisible, things, made subject to the Lamb. And every one of these seven words bears a resemblance to the seal which it answers.
