Footnotes

  1. Revelation 12:8 The description of the victory, by denying of the thing in this verse, and by affirming the contrary in the next verse.

  2. Revelation 12:8 They were cast out, so that they were never seen anymore in heaven.
  3. Revelation 12:10 The song of victory or triumph containing first, a proposition of the glory of God and of Christ showed in that victory: secondly, it containeth a reason of the same proposition taken from the effects, as that the enemy is overcome in battle in this verse, and that the godly are made conquerors (and more than conquerors, Rom. 8:37) verse 11. Thirdly, a conclusion wherein is an exhortation unto the Angels, and the Saints, and unto the world, a prophecy of great misery, and of destruction procured by the devil against mankind, lest himself should shortly be miserable alone, verse 12.
