 The seals are not judgments executed by the Lord, but of a providential nature. (Lectures on Revelation 6 by W. Kelly)
 first, imperial conquests, then wars, then famine, then pestilence, carrying with it what Ezekiel calls God’s four sore plagues (sword, famine, pestilence and the beasts of the earth). They speak of the providential course of God’s dealings, and hence the four beasts call attention to it; but they have God’s voice in them, the voice of the Almighty: (Lectures on Revelation 6 by W. Kelly)

when: ὄτε AC., many cursives, and most Vv.; ὄτι. B., thirty-three mss., Compl., Vulg. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.16)
one: For μίαν Er. has ἔν. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.17)
seven: ὲπτά ABC., thirty-five mss., Compl., Vulg., Æth., Syr., Ar.p, And., Are., cat.; though many cursives, Rec., Cop., etc., omit. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.17)
seven: Rec. omits ἐπτὰ, but the three uncial and twenty-eight other MSS. contain it. (Prospect 1:156)
seven... as: it is hard to see why the Revisers should render their correct text "with" a voice, as it is a nom. pend. They rightly read "seven," (Bible Treasury 14:158-159)
saying: λέγοντος after βρ. A., Slav.4 (and so Arm., omitting the previous λέγ.) (Rev. of John, 1860, p.17)
voice: φωνή (or -ῆ) ABC., near forty mss., Compl., Are., cat.; -ῆς many cursives, Rec. (some -ήν, and -ῶν.) (Rev. of John, 1860, p.17)
voice: Rec. φωνῆς, Gr. Kn. Sz. Ln. and Tisch.φωνὴ, Treg. φωνη. (Prospect 1:156)
Come.^: καὶ βλέπε is wanting in AC., twelve mss., Compl., Am., Ar.e, etc.; contrary to many mss., Rec.; καὶ (omitted by five mss.) ἴδε B., thirty mss., most Vv., etc. (Rev. of John, 1860, p.17)
Come.^: Rec. reads at the end of the verse καὶ βλέπε, Gr. Kn. and Sz. καὶ ἴδε, as does Matthiae; (see verse 5,) Ln. Tisch. and Treg. insert neither here, nor in verses 3, 5, and 7. (Prospect 1:156)
Come.^: It may be well to mention in this note my opinion that the words "and see" (which, according to the common text and the authorized version, follow "Come" in the call of the four living creatures) appear to be an interpolation. In the case of the second (verse 3) there is no difference of judgment among critical editors of the least note; but, strange to say, Griesbach and Scholz retain the ordinary sense in the last two, and, in the first case of all, Knapp along with them. Buttmann, Hahn, Lachmann, Tischendorf, and Tregelles omit the words uniformly, and, as I think, with reason. The difference as to interpretation would be this: as the text. rec. stands, it is a call from each living creature to John; but if they merely cry "Come," it would seem to be a direct address to the riders on the several horses, who accordingly come forth at their bidding. (Lect. on Rev., p.139-140)
Come.^: Surely it is plain enough that we ought not to have here, and after the other three horses, the words "And see." They are wanting in the best text for all these passages. (Yet in every instance the Sinai MS. supports the inferior copies against the Alexandrian, the Rescript of Paris, and the Porphyrian Uncial, with the better cursives, etc. The Sinaitic is often careless, especially in the Revelation.) In every one of the cases the sentence ought only to be "Come." The difference comes to this, that "Come and see" would be addressed to John; whereas according to the better MSS. "Come" is addressed by the living creature to the rider upon the horse. Clearly this makes all possible difference. (Rev. Exp., p.95)
Come. ^: [The RV] rightly omit[s] "and see," though א B and near forty cursives support the sense, not one known MS., the precise form (βλέπε, a conjecture of Erasmus) of the Text. Rec. The correction here is valuable; for the call of each living creature is not to the prophet or any other than to each horseman, who thereon does come. Some have thought that the copyists were influenced by Ezek. 8:9; possibly it was John 1:39: if so, it was a strange blunder. Even if καὶ ἴδε, as is most like, was inferred from the immediately following καὶ εἶδον (ἴδον), it was a baseless and fraudulent addition. A similar remark applies to 3, 5, 7. (Bible Treasury 14:159)
Come.^: [See also Lect. Intro. to Acts, Cath. Epist. and Rev., p.453]
