21 From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds,[1] fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Revelation 16:21

Commentary on Revelation 16:17-21

(Read Revelation 16:17-21)

The seventh and last angel poured forth his vial, and the downfal of Babylon was finished. The church triumphant in heaven saw it and rejoiced; the church in conflict on earth saw it and became triumphant. God remembered the great and wicked city; though for some time he seemed to have forgotten her idolatry and cruelty. All that was most secure was carried away by the ruin. Men blasphemed: the greatest judgments that can befal men, will not bring to repentance without the grace of God. To be hardened against God, by his righteous judgments, is a certain token of sure and utter destruction.
