And the sixth angel sounded, 11
and I heard a voice from the b
four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
(10) The sixth execution done on the world by the tyrannical powers of it, working in the four parts of the earth, that is, in most cruel manner execution their tyrannous dominion through out the whole world: and killing the miserable people without punishment, which before was not lawful for them to do in that sort, as I showed in (Revelation 9:4). This narration has two parts: a commandment from God, in (Revelation 9:14) and an execution of the commandment, in (Revelation 9:15).
(11) The commandment given by Christ himself, who is governor over all.
(b) He alludes to the altar of incense, which stood in the court which the priests were in, opposite the Ark of the Covenant, having a veil between them.
