Revelation 11:16

The four and twenty elders (oi eikosi tessarev presbuteroi).
They follow the living creatures (verse 15, if correctly interpreted) in their adoration, as in 4:9. Though seated on thrones of their own (4:4), yet they fall upon their faces in every act of worship to God and Christ (4:10; 5:8,14; 19:4). Here epi ta proswpa autwn (upon their faces) is added as in 7:11 about the angels. The elders here again represent the redeemed, as the four living creatures the forces of nature, in the great thanksgiving here (euxaristoumen, present active indicative of euxaristew).
