Revelation 13:1 - Scofield Reference Notes

Bible Comments

rise up

Daniel's fourth beast.

( See Scofield) - (Daniel 7:26).

The "ten horns" are explained in (Daniel 7:24); (Revelation 17:12) to be ten kings, and the whole vision is of the last form of Gentile world-power, a confederated ten-kingdom empire covering the sphere of authority of ancient Rome (Revelation 13:1-3) refers to the ten-kingdom empire; versus (Revelation 13:4-10) to the emperor, who is emphatically "the Beast."

( See Scofield) - (Revelation 19:20).

Revelation 13:1

1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the namea of blasphemy.
