As a voice of many waters (w pwnhn udatwn pollwn). For which see Galatians 1:15 . Of a great thunder (bronth megalh). For which see Galatians 6:1 ; Galatians 19:6 . For this voice out of heaven see Galatians 10:4 ; Galatians 14:15 ; Galatians 18:4 and note accusative with hkousa. As the voice of harpers harping with their harps (w kiqarwidwn kiqarizontwn en tai kiqarai autwn). Triple use of kiqara ( Galatians 5:8 ), kiqarwidwn ( Galatians 18:22 ), kiqarizontwn (old verb kiqarizw, in N.T. only here and 1 Corinthians 14:7 ). Wonderful melody in this chorus by the angels, not by the 144,000.
