          References for Revelation 15:4

            • Ú 15:4 - Hosios, not hagios. It is used for mercy, grace, and of Christ, as the One in whom all gracious qualities are concentrated. (Ps. 89.1,2,19.) In men it means piety and uprightness. Chesed is so translated in the Old Testament. It is in general the sum of qualities which suit and form the divine character in man, as opposed to the human will: what God gives as consistent with himself, his character, and promise. The 'sure mercies' of David is expressed by this word in the LXX, Isa. 55.3; Acts 13.34. God alone possesses the qualities which entitle him to worship as a pious man would understand it. Hosios is used in this general way for 'holy:' see Note i, Heb. 7.26.
