Robertson's Word Pictures of the New TestamentRevelation 22:10
- And he saith unto me (kai legei moi).
- The angel resumes as in 19:9.
- Seal not up (mh spragishiv).
- Prohibition with mh and the ingressive first aorist active subjunctive of spragizw. Charles takes this to be the command of Christ because in verses 7,18 "the words of the prophecy of this book" come from Christ. But that is not a conclusive argument, though Charles, as already stated, rearranges these chapters to suit his own notion. Once only (10:4) was John directed to seal and not to write. See there for discussion of spragizw. This book is to be left open for all to read (1:3; 13:18; 17:9; 22:7,18).
- At hand (egguv).
- As in 1:3.
