Revelation 11:1 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

A rod

See on Revelation 2:27.

And the angel stood

The temple (τὸν ναὸν)

See on Matthew 4:5.

The altar

Of incense, as that alone stood in the sacred place.

Them that worship

Note the peculiar expressed, measuring the worshippers with a reed.
