Revelation 9:19

AD 735

AD 735
tails: That is, in the their speech and office. For &quot;the prophet that teacheth a lie, he is the tail,&quot; for he conceals a part which is in a manner hidden and unclean by the volubility of a flattering tongue, saying to the ungodly, &quot;Thou art good.&quot;

The power of the imagined horses or real cannon, lying in their mouths and in their tails, signifies that the mischievous power of the cannon is directed to the object by their mouths, but takes its birth in the tail or breech of the cannon, where the charge is lodged: whence the cannon's breech is here compared to the serpent's head, which contains its venom. (Pastorini, hic.)
