 In verse 19 I think that the opening of the temple in heaven marks a new portion of the book, and that it is therefore connected, not so much with what went before, as with what follows (Lectures on Revelation 11:1-18 by W. Kelly)
 The temple of God then is opened in heaven, and there was seen in it the ark of His covenant, the pledge of His faithfulness to His people. (Lectures on Revelation 12 by W. Kelly)
 the ark of His covenant is seen, the sure pledge of mercy, and sign of faithfulness to His people. But still the circumstances were such as called for judgment; and accordingly "there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail,"* all of which were the tokens of God's judgment. (Lectures on Revelation 12 by W. Kelly)

[whole verse]: It is amazing that the true relation of this verse escaped the notice of so many able Christian men, owing perhaps to the mere fact of its being unfortunately tacked to the end of chap. 11, instead of opening the new division commencing with chap. 12. If Mr. Elliott had only observed it, he might have been spared much trouble; but then he would have lost the coincidence of the "great hail" with the storm in July, 1788!! and the "earthquake" of the French Revolution in 1789. But the hailstorm he had hitherto interpreted as an invasion from the cold north-east. Where is the consistency of this vaunted scheme? And what had the opening of the temple of God, or the sight of the ark of His covenant there, to do with the French democrats? (Lect. on Rev., p.252-253) [See also Rev. Exp., p.134 and Lect. Intro. to Acts, Cath. Epist. and Rev., p.478]
[whole verse]: The Revisers are right of course in separating 19, as indeed it is the introduction to the vision that follows, rather than the conclusion of chapter 11. (Bible Treasury 14:176)
was opened: ἠνοίγη AC., most mss., Rec., And.; ἠνοίχθη B. and twenty-two mss., Compl. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.32)
was opened: Matthiae ἠνοιχθη. (Prospect 1:159)
[that is]: AC. 14. 38. 87. 92. 95. Vic., etc., insert, and B. with the great majority of cursives, Are., cat., Prim., omit ὁ before ἐν τῷ οὐρ,. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.32)
[that is]: Ln. ὀ ἐν τῷ οὐρ. Treg. brackets ἐν τ. οὐρ. as being omitted in A and three other MSS. (Prospect 1:159)
[that is]: The true reading is probably ὀ ἐν τῷ οὐρανῷ (i.e. which is in heaven). At any rate, so the Alexandrian and the Paris rescript, the Leicester, a Vatican cursive (579), the Middlehill, the Montfort, and one of the Parham (17) manuscripts say, not to speak of the Cod. Coislin. of Andreas and Victorinus. Mr. [Elliott] is also quite wrong in saying that ’according to Tregelles this is a mistake.’ It is true that in his first edition, he omits this various reading, though long before noted by Walton, Mill, Bengel, Wetstein probably (I now add certainly), and even adopted without question in the text, not of Wordsworth only, but of Lachmann and Tischendorf, as it appears to be by Tregelles, judging from the new edition of 1859 (which gave the English only, not the Greek). How it was that Mr. E. did not find it in the critical editions of Griesbach and of Scholz, it is not for me to say; but there it unquestionably may be found by any who examine them. In Hahn’s manual one could not rightly expect such a thing... Now it must be evident to any candid mind that my fault with Mr. E. was not the question of adopting ὀ, for I myself bracketed it in my Greek text, and therefore doubted it more than the greatest of modern critics, and only used the word "probably" in the note before Mr. E. What I charged him with was the extraordinary tissue of errors, which he now, one is sorry to see, evades by an argument about the reading. He distinctly affirmed in his fourth edition that when W. read the disputed ὀ as if in A and C, this was a mistake according to Tregelles. I denied both the mistake and that T. says anything of the sort. Dr. T. knows the readings of the Revelation far too well to be guilty of an assertion so monstrous in the eyes of any one acquainted with such matters. He never said so. He omitted this various reading in his first edition—a rare fault with him; for the book was in most respects very well done and abounded in sound information… But T.’s omission (which the most careful may fall into sometimes) is no warrant for using his name to deny ὀ to be the reading of A and C, as it certainly is. And I corroborated this by referring to Tregelles’s new edition (English) of 1859, in which he gives the clause, "And the temple of God * which is in heaven was opened." (In his explanation of marks used Dr. T. says, "An asterisk (*) is inserted whenever the ancient text differs from the modern.") This can leave no doubt how utterly mistaken Mr. E. was. Further, though not adopted in the text of Griesbach or Scholz, the reading is given with the authorities then ascertained. (Lect. on Rev., p. xix-xx)
[that is]: I do not say that it is "the true reading." In 1860 I bracketed the article before ἐν as doubtful; I should be disposed to do the same in 1871. (Lect. on Rev., p. xxxv)
[that is]: Probably "that is" (ὀ) is right, as later critics think on good authority, though the omission of the article in א B and most cursives, etc. must make it doubtful. (Bible Treasury 14:176)
