A Textual Commentary On Revelation 7:14

(a) Some copies, and the Complutensian edition, read, “my Lord”; and so do the Vulgate Latin, Syriac, and Arabic versions. John confesses his ignorance, and ascribes knowledge to the elder, and desires information of him; for the sense is, that the elder knew who they were, and from whence they came, but he did not, and therefore desires that he would inform him; and so the Arabic version renders it, “and my Lord, thou art more learned”; that is, than I am, and therefore instruct me, as he accordingly did; (John Gill, Exposition of the Entire Bible)
