And I heard another out of the altar say
That is, another angel that came out of the altar; see ( Revelation 14:18 ) and who represents the souls under the altar, whose blood had been shed by the above persons; compare with this ( Revelation 6:9 ) though, there, such whose blood had been shed by Rome Pagan are described; the Ethiopic version calls this angel as before, "the angel of the fountains of water"; and the Alexandrian copy, and Syriac and Arabic versions, read, "I heard the altar saying": as follows,
even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments;
the same as in ( Revelation 15:3 ) ( 19:2 ) . This angel joins the other, and approves and confirms what he says; applauding the judgements of Christ upon the worshippers of the beast, from the verity of them, being what were threatened, and from the justice of them, being what they deserved.
