“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;”
King James Version (KJV)
6:15 And the kings of the earth - They who had been so in their day. And the great men and chief captains - The generals and nobles. Hid themselves - So far as in them lay. In the rocks of the mountains - There are also rocks on the plains; but they were rocks on high, which they besought to fall upon them.
Re 6:15-17 And the kings of the earth . . . hid themselves. This implies great terror among "them that dwell on the earth" (Re 6:10); their belief that terrible judgments were impending from God; that "the wrath of the Lamb" was manifested, and their efforts to escape.
