“And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,”
King James Version (KJV)
11:16 And the four and twenty elders - These shall reign over the earth, #Rev 5:10|. Who sit before God on their thrones - which we do not read of any angel.
Re 11:16-18 The four and twenty elders, which sat before God. These heavenly princes, in some way identified with the work of redemption, join in worship and praises. "The mystery of God has been finished in the days of the voice of the seventh angel" (Re 10:7). The eighteenth verse will sufficiently explain why this also should be called a woe trumpet. It is the trumpet of judgment.
