Revelation 6:11 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

White robes were given unto every one of them (ἐδόθησαν ἑκάστοις στολαὶ λευκαὶ)

The best texts read ἐδόθη αὐτοῖς ἑκάστῳ στολὴ λευκή there was given them to each one a white robe. So Rev. Στολὴ is properly a long, flowing robe; a festive garment. Compare Mark 16:5; Luke 15:22; Luke 20:46.

Should rest (ἀναπαύσωνται)

See on Matthew 11:28; see on 1 Peter 5:14; compare Revelation 14:13; Daniel 12:13. Not merely rest from their crying for vengeance, but rest in peace.

Fellow-servants

See Master in Revelation 6:10.

Should be fulfilled (πληρώσονται)

Completed in number. See Colossians 2:10. Some texts read πληρώσωσιν shall have fulfilled their course.
