Revelation 16:2 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

And the first went

Each angel, as his turn comes, with draws (ὑπάγετε, see on John 6:21; see on John 8:21) from the heavenly scene.

There fell (ἐγένετο)

Lit., there came to pass. Rev., it became. Elliott, very aptly, there broke out.

Noisome and grievous (κακὸν καὶ πονηρὸν)

Similarly the two cognate nouns κακία and πονρία malice and wickedness occur together in 1 Corinthians 5:8. Πονηρός emphasizes the activity of evil. See on Luke 3:19.

Sore (ἕλκος)

See on Luke 16:20. Compare the sixth Egyptian plague, Exodus 9:8-12, where the Septuagint uses this word ἕλκος boil. Also of the boil or scab of leprosy, Leviticus 13:18; king Hezekiah's boil, 2 Kings 20:7; the botch of Egypt, Deuteronomy 28:27, Deuteronomy 28:35. In Job 2:7 (Sept.) the boils are described as here by πονηρός sore.
