Wesley's Notes for Revelation 11:10


11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth - Perhaps this expression may peculiarly denote earthly - minded men. Shall make merry - As did the Philistines over Samson. And send gifts to one another - Both Turks, and Jews, and heathens, and false Christians.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 11:10


Re 11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth. This expression, often used in Revelation, always refers to enemies of Christ. See Re 3:10 6:10 Re 11:10 12:12 13:8,12,14 14:6 17:8. Shall rejoice over them, and make merry. These rejoice because the witnesses are slain. They make merry over their death, because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. These witnesses, then, prophesied; that is, they spoke the will of God. Their warnings, exhortations, and denunciations of sin tormented the dwellers of the earth.
