Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 5:13

_ _ The universal chorus of creation, including the outermost circles as well as the inner (of saints and angels), winds up the doxology. The full accomplishment of this is to be when Christ takes His great power and reigns visibly.

_ _ every creature — “all His works in all places of His dominion” (Psalms 103:22).

_ _ under the earth — the departed spirits in Hades.

_ _ such as are — So B and Vulgate. But A omits this.

_ _ in the seaGreek,upon the sea”: the sea animals which are regarded as being on the surface [Alford].

_ _ all that are in them — So Vulgate reads. A omits “all (things)” here (Greek,panta”), and reads, “I heard all (Greek,pantas”) saying”: implying the harmonious concert of all in the four quarters of the universe.

_ _ Blessing, etc. — Greek,the blessing, the honor, and the glory, and the might to the ages of the ages.” The fourfold ascription indicates world-wide universality.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 5:6-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 5:13

And every creature — In the whole universe, good or bad. In the heaven, on the earth, under the earth, on the sea — With these four regions of the world, agrees the fourfold word of praise. What is in heaven, says blessing; what is on earth, honour; what is under the earth, glory: what is on the sea, strength; is unto him. This praise from all creatures begins before the opening of the first seal; but it continues from that time to eternity, according to the capacity of each. His enemies must acknowledge his glory; but those in heaven say, Blessed be God and the Lamb.

This royal manifesto is, as it were, a proclamation, showing how Christ fulfils all things, and "every knee bows to him," not only on earth, but also in heaven, and under the earth. This book exhausts all things, 1 Corinthians 15:27-28, and is suitable to an heart enlarged as the sand of the sea. It inspires the attentive and intelligent reader with such a magnanimity, that he accounts nothing in this world great; no, not the whole frame of visible nature, compared to the immense greatness of what he is here called to behold, yea, and in part, to inherit.

St. John has in view, through the whole following vision, what he has been now describing, namely, the four living creatures, the elders, the angels, and all creatures, looking together at the opening of the seven seals.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 5:13

(15) And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, [be] unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

(15) The consent of all the common multitude of the creatures.
