Revelation 6:16

"And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?" (v. 17)


"But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.  For, behold, the days are coming in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.  Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us."
Luke 23:28-30
"The high places also of Aven, the sin of Israel, shall be destroyed: the thorn and the thistle shall come up on their altars; and they shall say to the mountains, Cover us; and to the hills, Fall on us."
Hosea 10:8


G. B. Caird (1966)
(On Luke 23:30) "Luke records a saying of Jesus, in which he quotes Hosea x. 8, applying the words not to some ultimate cosmic catastrophe but to the destruction of Jerusalem by Roman armies." (The Revelation of St. John, p. 90)

Dr. Alan F. Johnson (1981)
(On Luke 23:30) “Jesus said that in this way the inhabitants of Jerusalem would cry out when God's judgment fell on the city, in A.D.70." ("Revelation" in The Expositor's Bible Commentary, p. 12:476)


F.F. Bruce (1986)
“The best commentary on the present passage is found in our Lord's words to the 'daughters of Jerusalem' on the Via Dolorosa (Lk. 23:30).. if the same crisis is in view here, the first six seals span the forty years up to A.D.70" ("Revelation" in International Bible Commentary, p. 1608)


Foy Wallace (1966)
“Since the quotation in 6:16 and Luke 23:30 are from the same prophecy of Hosea 10:8, it is the Lord's own application of its fulfillment in those events surrounding the destruction of Jerusalem, and it is therefore solid evidence which cannot be controverted that the seals of Revelation are not now future." (The Book of Revelation, p. 156)
