CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And the seven angels - See the notes on Revelation 15:1.
Came out of the temple - Were seen to come from the temple; that is, from the immediate presence of God.
Having the seven plagues - See the notes on Revelation 15:1. Each one entrusted with a single "plague" to be executed upon the earth.

Clothed in pure and white linen - The emblem of holiness - the common representation in regard to the heavenly inhabitants. See the notes on Revelation 3:4; Revelation 7:13. Compare Matthew 17:2; Luke 9:29; Mark 16:5.
And having their breasts girded with golden girdles - See the notes on Revelation 1:13. The meaning is, that they were attired in a manner befitting their rank and condition.

And another angel came out of the temple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, "Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come, because the harvest of the earth is ripe."
And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle.
Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels who had seven plagues, which are the last, because in them the wrath of God is finished.
It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.
