Revelation 8:1 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

When (ὅτε)

Read ὅταν, the indefinite particle with the indicative mood. For a similar construction, see Mark 11:19 (correct reading). Alford observes that it occurs in the opening of this seal only, giving it an indefiniteness which does not belong to any of the rest.

There was (ἐγένετο)

More literally, come to pass. Rev., there followed.

About (ὡς)

A usual form of expression with John. See John 1:39; John 6:19; John 11:18.
