Revelation Chapter 5: 11
Revelation 5:11 – Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands…
After the elders and living creatures finish their song of redemption, John hears the voice of angels. The angels encompass the throne of God, around the living creatures and the elders, as shown in the schematic.
There are too many angels to number. The Greek word “murias,” translated as “ten thousand,” generally has the meaning of a myriad or an innumerable count (Luke 12:1, Acts 21:20). The following passage, which uses the same Greek word, supports this meaning:
Hebrews 12:22 – But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to aninnumerable company of angels.
“Ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands”: The number is to express an amount beyond calculation. The Greek expression can also be translated “innumerable” or “many thousands” (Luke 12:1; Heb. 12:22).
This number is not a literal number and would not be to our advantage to figure out. It just means a number too large to count. This is a very large company of ministering spirits, angels. The voice had to be loud to be such a multitude.
