Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 6:14

_ _ departedGreek,was separated from” its place; “was made to depart.” Not as Alford, “parted asunder”; for, on the contrary, it was rolled together as a scroll which had been open is rolled up and laid aside. There is no “asunder one from another” here in the Greek, as in Acts 15:39, which Alford copies.

_ _ mountain ... moved out of ... places — (Psalms 121:1, Margin; Jeremiah 3:23; Jeremiah 4:24; Nahum 1:5). This total disruption shall be the precursor of the new earth, just as the pre-Adamic convulsions prepared it for its present occupants.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 6:9-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 6:14

And the heavens departed as a book that is rolled together — When the scripture compares some very great with a little thing, the majesty and omnipotence of God, before whom great things are little, is highly exalted. Every mountain and island — What a mountain is to the land, that an island is to the sea.
