Revelation 13:3 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

I saw (εἶδον)

Omitted in the best texts.

Wounded (ἐφαγμένην)

Lit., slain. See on Revelation 5:6. The Rev. smitten is questionable. The word occurs eight times in Revelation, and in seven of these it must be rendered slain or slaughtered. Professor Milligan rightly observes that the statement is the counterpart of that in Revelation 5:6, where we read of the lamb as though it had been slaughtered. In both cases there had been actual death, and in both revival. The one is a mocking counterpart of the other.

Deadly wound (πληγὴ τοῦ θανάτου)

Lit., stroke of death. Rev., death-stroke.

After the beast (ὀπίσω τοῦ θηρίου)

A pregnant construction for wondered at and followed after.
