Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 16:20


16:20 Every island and mountain was moved out of its place, #Rev 6:14|; but here they all flee away. What a change must this make in the face of the terraqueous globe! And yet the end of the world is not come.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 16:20


Re 16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. Islands and mountains denote earthly powers. Perhaps the meaning is that the old lines between states and nations shall pass away, and that henceforth there shall be one nation, one kingdom, one people, that of Jesus Christ.
