Revelation 12:11 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Overcame (ἐνίκησαν)

See on 1 John 2:13.

By the blood of the Lamb (διὰ τὸ αἷμα τοῦ ἀρνίου)

The preposition διά with the accusative signifies on account of. Hence Rev., correctly, because of: in virtue of the shedding of that blood. Similarly in the succeeding clause, "because of the word of their testimony." For lamb, see on Revelation 5:6.

Testimony (μαρτυρίας)

See on John 1:7.

They loved not their life even unto death

Alford, correctly, "they carried their not-love of their life even unto death."
