What does Revelation 10:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Revelation 10:5

And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the
earth
His right foot being on the one, and his left foot upon the other, as described in ( Revelation 10:2 ) ;

lifted up his hand to heaven;
the Oriental versions read, "his right hand"; and so some copies, and the Complutensian edition: the man clothed in linen, ( Daniel 12:6 Daniel 12:7 ) , who is the same with the angel here, held up both his hands; the lifting up of the hand was a gesture used in swearing: see ( Genesis 14:22 ) ; so the Jews say F15, "the right hand", or by the right hand, (hewby wz) , "this is an oath", according to ( Daniel 12:7 ) ; or whether the right hand or the left, is an oath, according to ( Isaiah 62:8 ) .
