Revelation 11:10

And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
Read Chapter 11


AD 735
tormented: Because of the plagues with which the human race is vexed, because of their testimony to God, even the very sigth of the righteous oppresses the unrighteous; as they themselves say, &quot;He is grievous unto us even to behold.&quot; <a


AD 735
rejoice: As often as the righteous are afflicted, the unrighteous exult and feast, as, &quot;while the ungodly is lifted up, the poor is consumed.&quot;

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
The inhabitants of the earth shall rejoice The persecutors rejoice and make merry for a while, when they seem to get the better of the Christians. Dioclesian caused pillars to be erected to him, as if he had destroyed the Christian religion; and when, by his cruelties he saw the faith of Christ, still increase more and more, he fell into a kind of madness, and laid down his empire. See Baron., p. 771. (Witham)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
