Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 9:18

_ _ By these three — A, B, C, and Aleph read (apo for kupo), “From”; implying the direction whence the slaughter came; not direct instrumentality as “by” implies. A, B, C, Aleph also add “plagues” after “three.” English Version reading, which omits it, is not well supported.

_ _ by the fireGreek,owing to the fire,” literally, “out of.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary
