Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 8:5

_ _ cast it into the earth — that is, unto the earth: the hot coals off the altar cast on the earth, symbolize God’s fiery judgments about to descend on the Church’s foes in answer to the saints’ incense-perfumed prayers which have just ascended before God, and those of the martyrs. How marvelous the power of the saints’ prayers!

_ _ there were — “there took place,” or “ensued.”

_ _ voices, and thunderings, and lightnings — B places the “voices” after “thunderings.” A places it after “lightnings.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 8:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 8:5

And there were thunderings, and lightnings, and voices, and an earthquake — These, especially when attended with fire, are emblems of God's dreadful judgments, which are immediately to follow.
