    Definitions for Revelation 7:12

    Amen - Dependable; faithful; certain.

    Clarke's Commentary on Revelation 7:12

    Saying, Amen - Giving their most cordial and grateful assent to the praises attributed to God and the Lamb.

    Blessing, and glory, etc. - There are here seven different species of praise attributed to God, as in Revelation 5:12 (note).

    Barnes' Notes on Revelation 7:12

    Saying, Amen - See the notes on Revelation 1:7. The word "Amen" here is a word strongly affirming the truth of what is said, or expressing hearty assent to it. It may be uttered, as expressing this, either in the beginning or end of a sentence. Thus, wills are commonly commenced, "In the name of God, Amen."

    Blessing, and glory, ... - Substantially the same ascription of praise occurs in Revelation 5:12. See the notes on that verse. The general idea is, that the highest kind of praise is to be ascribed to God; everything excellent in character is to be attributed to him; every blessing which is received is to be traced to him. The order of the words indeed is changed, but the sense is substantially the same. In the former case Revelation 5:12 the ascription of praise is to the Lamb - the Son of God; here it is to God. In both instances the worship is described as rendered in heaven; and the use of the language shows that God and the Lamb are regarded in heaven as entitled to equal praise. The only words found here which do not occur in Revelation 5:12 are thanksgiving and might - words which require no particular explanation.

    Wesley's Notes on Revelation 7:12

    7:12 Amen - With this word all the angels confirm the words of the great multitude; but they likewise carry the praise much higher. The blessing, and the glory, and the wisdom, and the thanksgiving, and the honour, and the power, and the strength, be unto our God for ever and ever - Before the Lamb began to open the seven seals, a sevenfold hymn of praise was brought him by many angels, Rev 5:12. Now he is upon opening the last seal, and the seven angels are going to receive seven trumpets, in order to make the kingdoms of the world subject to God. All the angels give sevenfold praise to God.
