Significant Words and Comments:
Commentary on Revelation 10:3 (7 February 2008):  “Cried with a loud voice,” is, “restored Israel greatly clarifies Yehuveh’s purposes.” See Revelation 4:1 regarding voice.
“As when a lion roareth,” should read, “as a lion roars,” for when is not even implied in the Greek text. Repeatedly Torah indicates that lions only roar when they have taken prey: “Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing?” Restored Israel has reason to resound like a lion! They have indeed been given “the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.” Amos 3:4 [compare Psalms 34:10; 58:6; 104:21; Genesis 49:9; Numbers 24:9; Job 4:10-11; 38:39; Isaiah 5:29; 31:4; 35:9; Jeremiah 2:15; 4:7; 49:19; 50:17; Ezekiel 19:2-14; Hosea 11:10; Amos 3:8; Nahum 2:11-13; Zechariah 11:3]; Psalms 2:8.
        In the Greek text the word order of the remaining phrase is,
“spake the seven thunders the themselves voices,” or “spake the seven thunders clearly.”
“Seven thunders,” seven righteous proclamations, as noted by Revelation 4:5. Thunders is from bronte [G1027], akin to the primary verb bremo “to roar.” These seven proclamations “uttered their voices,” present their clarifications, as discussed in notes on Revelation 10:4. Voice, Revelation 4:1.
