Revelation 10:9 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
10:9 Eat it up - The like was commanded to Ezekiel. This was an emblem of thoroughly considering and digesting it. And it will make thy belly bitter, but it will be sweet as honey in thy mouth - The sweetness betokens the many good things which follow, Rev 11:1,15, and c.; the bitterness, the evils which succeed under the third woe.
When I discovered your words, I devoured them. They are my joy and my heart's delight, for I bear your name, O LORD God of Heaven's Armies.
Son of man, listen to what I say to you. Do not join them in their rebellion. Open your mouth, and eat what I give you."
The voice said to me, "Son of man, eat what I am giving you--eat this scroll! Then go and give its message to the people of Israel."
"Fill your stomach with this," he said. And when I ate it, it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth.
So I took the small scroll from the hand of the angel, and I ate it! It was sweet in my mouth, but when I swallowed it, it turned sour in my stomach.
