251. Verse 10. The four-and-twenty elders fell down before Him that sat upon the throne and adored Him that liveth for ages of ages, signifies the humiliation of all in heaven before the Lord. That by " the four-and-twenty elders" are meant all who are of the Lord's church, may be seen above (n. 233); here all who are of His church in heaven; "the elders," as heads, represented all. That it is humiliation before the Lord, and from humiliation adoration, is evident without explanation.
