Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 5:9

_ _ sungGreek, “sing”: it is their blessed occupation continually. The theme of redemption is ever new, ever suggesting fresh thoughts of praise, embodied in the “new song.”

_ _ us to God — So manuscript B, Coptic, Vulgate, and Cyprian. But A omits “us”: and Aleph reads instead, “to our God.”

_ _ out of — the present election-church gathered out of the world, as distinguished from the peoples gathered to Christ as the subjects, not of an election, but of a general and world-wide conversion of all nations.

_ _ kindred ... tongue ... people ... nation — The number four marks world-wide extension: the four quarters of the world. For “kindred,” translate as Greek, “tribe.” This term and “people” are usually restricted to Israel: “tongue and nation” to the Gentiles (Revelation 7:9; Revelation 11:9; Revelation 13:7, the oldest reading; Revelation 14:6). Thus there is here marked the election-Church gathered from Jews and Gentiles. In Revelation 10:11, for “tribes,” we find among the four terms “kings”; in Revelation 17:15, “multitudes.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 5:6-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 5:9

And they sing a new song — One which neither they nor any other had sung before. Thou hast redeemed us — So the living creatures also were of the number of the redeemed. This does not so much refer to the act of redemption, which was long before, as to the fruit of it; and so more directly to those who had finished their course, "who were redeemed from the earth," Revelation 14:1, out of every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation — That is, out of all mankind.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 5:9

And they sung a (b) new (11) song, saying, (12) Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

(b) No common song.

(11) That is, composed according to the present matter, the Lamb having received the book as it were with his feet and opened it with his horns, as it is said in the Song of Solomon

(12) The song of the nobles or princes standing by the throne, consisting of a publication of the praise of Christ and a confirmation of the same from his blessings, both which we have received from him (as are the suffering of his death, our redemption upon the cross by his blood, in this verse: and our communion with him in kingdom and priesthood which long ago he has granted to us with himself and which we hereafter hope to obtain, as our kingdom to come, in Christ, (Revelation 5:10).
