Revelation 9:20 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Repented not of the works (οὔτε μετενόησαν ἐκ τῶν ἔργων)

Lit., "out of the works." The preposition ἐκ out of with repent, denotes a moral change involving an abandonment of evil works. See on Matthew 3:2; see on Matthew 21:29.

Works of their hands

Not their course of life, but the idols which their hands had made. Compare Deuteronomy 4:28; Psalm 135:15; Acts 7:4.

Devils (δαιμόνια)

More properly, demons. See on Mark 1:34. Compare 1 Corinthians 10:20; 1 Timothy 4:1.

See, hear, walk

Compare Daniel 5:23.
