Revelation 11:6 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible

"Certainly there were many needy widows in Israel in Elijah's time, when the heavens were closed for three and a half years, and a severe famine devastated the land.
Then the second angel blew his trumpet, and a great mountain of fire was thrown into the sea. One-third of the water in the sea became blood,
And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will be clothed in burlap and will prophesy during those 1,260 days."
Then the second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it became like the blood of a corpse. And everything in the sea died.
