Revelation 13:6 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

In blasphemy (εἰς βλασφημίαν)

Read βλασφημίας blasphemies. Rev., giving the force of εἰς more correctly, "for blasphemies."

And them that dwell in heaven (καὶ τοὺς ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ σκηνοῦντας)

The best texts omit καὶ and, making the following words in apposition with ὄνομα and σκηνὴν name and tabernacle. Thus the literal sense would be to blaspheme the name and tabernacle which dwell in heaven. "The meaning is to enhance the enormity of the blasphemy by bringing out the lofty nature of God's holy name and dwelling-place" (Alford). The word dwell is, literally, tabernacle. See on Revelation 12:12.
