Revelation 12:10 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Saying in heaven (λέγουσαν ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ)

The correct reading joins in heaven with great voice. So Rev. I heard a great voice in heaven.

Now (ἄρτι)

See on John 13:33.

Is come (ἐγένετο)

Lit., came to pass. Alford says: "It is impossible in English to join to a particle of present time, such as ἄρτι now, a verb in aoristic time. We are driven to the perfect in such cases."

Salvation, power, the kingdom

All have the article: the salvation, etc. So Rev. The phrase, now is come the salvation, etc., means that these are realized and established. Some, less correctly, render, now is the salvation, etc., become our God's. Compare Luke 3:6.

Power (ἐξουσία)

See on Mark 2:10. Rev., authority.

The accuser of our brethren (ὁ κατήγορος τῶν ἀδελφῶν ἡμῶν)

The correct form of the Greek for accuser is a transcript of the Rabbinical Hebrew, κατήγωρ. The Rabbins had a corresponding term συνήγωρ for Michael, as the advocate of God's people. The phrase is applied to Satan nowhere else in the New Testament.

Is cast down (κατεβλήθη)

The aorist tense. Once and for all. Compare John 12:31; John 16:8, John 16:11.
