“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:”
King James Version (KJV)
Re 9:20 The rest . . . repented not of the works of their hands. It is implied that these woes were sent as judgments. The Christianity of the East overthrown by the Saracens and Turks had become utterly corrupt. "The rest", that is, those in other countries not conquered by Turks, continued their sins. That they should not worship devils. The worship of dead saints is what is meant by demon worship in the Scriptures. And idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood. Images had now been introduced into the churches everywhere and were worshiped.
