Revelation 2:10 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Fear not (υηδὲν φοβοῦ)

Lit., fear nothing. For the verb, see on Luke 1:50.

Behold (ἰδοὺ δὴ)

The particle δὴ for certain, which is not rendered, gives a quality of assurance to the prediction.

The Devil (διάβολος)

See on Matthew 4:1. The persecution of the Christians is thus traced to the direct agency of Satan, and not to the offended passions or prejudices of men. Trench observes: "There is nothing more remarkable in the records which have come down to us of the early persecutions, than the sense which the confessors and martyrs and those who afterwards narrate their sufferings and their triumphs entertain and utter, that these great fights of affliction through which they were called to pass, were the immediate work of the Devil."

Shall cast (μέλλει βαλεῖν)

Rev., rightly, is about to cast.

Prison (φυλακὴν)

See on Acts 5:21.

May be tried (πειρασθήτε)

Tempted. See on 1 Peter 1:7.

Tribulation ten days (θλῖψιν ἡμερῶν δέκα)

Lit., a tribulation of ten days.
