Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 8:8

_ _ as it were — not literally a mountain: a mountain-like burning mass. There is a plain allusion to Jeremiah 51:25; Amos 7:4.

_ _ third part of the sea became blood — In the parallel second vial, the whole sea (not merely a third) becomes blood. The overthrow of Jericho, the type of the Antichristian Babylon, after which Israel, under Joshua (the same name as Jesus), victoriously took possession of Canaan, the type of Christ’s and His people’s kingdom, is perhaps alluded to in the SEVEN trumpets, which end in the overthrow of all Christ’s foes, and the setting up of His kingdom. On the seventh day, at the seventh time, when the seven priests blew the seven ram’s horn trumpets, the people shouted, and the walls fell flat: and then ensued the blood-shedding of the foe. A mountain-like fiery mass would not naturally change water into blood; nor would the third part of ships be thereby destroyed.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Revelation 8:7-13.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Revelation 8:8

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea — By the sea, particularly as it is here opposed to the earth, we may understand the west, or Europe; and chiefly the middle parts of it, the vast Roman empire. A mountain here seems to signify a great force and multitude of people. Jeremiah 51:25; so this may point at the irruption of the barbarous nations into the Roman empire. The warlike Goths broke in upon it about the year 250: and from that time the irruption of one nation after another never ceased till the very form of the Roman empire, and all but the name, was lost. The fire may mean the fire of war, and the rage of those savage nations. And the third part of the sea became blood — This need not imply, that just a third part of the Romans was slain; but it is certain an inconceivable deal of blood was shed in all these invasions.
