CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And when he had opened the second seal - So as to disclose another portion of the volume. See the notes at Revelation 5:1.
I heard the second beast say - The second beast was like a calf or an ox. See the notes at Revelation 4:7.

Come and see - See the notes on Revelation 6:1.
