Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 8:4

_ _ the smoke ... which came with the prayers ... ascended up — rather, “the smoke of the incense FOR (or ‘given TO’: ‘given’ being understood from Revelation 8:3) the prayers of the saints ascended up, out of the angel’s hand, in the presence of Gods” The angel merely burns the incense given him by Christ the High Priest, so that its smoke blends with the ascending prayers of the saints. The saints themselves are priests; and the angels in this priestly ministration are but their fellow servants (Revelation 19:10).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 8:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Revelation 8:4

And the smoke of the incense, [which came] with the prayers of the saints, (b) ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.

(b) Our prayers are worth nothing, unless the true and sweet savour of that only sacrifice be especially and before all things with them, that is to say, unless we are first of all justified through faith in his Son, acceptable to him.
