SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:10

Yo fui en el Espíritu en el día del Seor, y oí detrs de mí una gran voz como de trompeta,

Clarke's Bible Commentary - Revelation 1:10

Verse 10. I was in the Spirit] That is, I received the Spirit of
prophecy, and was under its influence when the first vision was exhibited.

The Lord's day] The first day of the week, observed as the Christian Sabbath, because on it Jesus Christ rose from the dead; therefore it was called the Lord's day, and has taken place of the Jewish Sabbath throughout the Christian world.

And heard behind me a great voice] This voice came unexpectedly and suddenly. He felt himself under the Divine afflatus; but did not know what scenes were to be represented.

As of a trumpet] This was calculated to call in every wandering thought, to fix his attention, and solemnize his whole frame. Thus God prepared Moses to receive the law. See Exod. xix. 16, 19, &c.

John Gill's Bible Commentary

Ver. 10. I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day , etc.] Not on the Jewish sabbath, which was now abolished, nor was that ever called the Lord's day, and had John meant that, he would have said on the sabbath day; much less the Jewish passover, but the first day of the week is designed; so the Ethiopic version renders it on the first day; and is so called just as the ordinance of the supper is called the Lord's supper, being instituted by the Lord, and the Lord's table, ( 1 Corinthians 10:21 11:20), and that because it was the day in which our Lord rose from the dead, ( Mark 16:9); and in which he appeared at different times to his disciples, ( John 20:19,26), and which the primitive churches set apart for his worship and service, and on which they met together to hear the word, and attend on ordinances, ( Acts 20:7 1 Corinthians 16:1); and Justin Martyr tells us, who lived within about fifty years after this time, that on the day called th tou hliou hmera , Sunday, (by the Greeks,) the Christians met together in one place, and read the Scriptures, and prayed together, and administered the ordinance of the supper; and this, he adds, was the first day in which God created the World, and our Saviour Jesus Christ rose from the dead; yea, Barnabas f25 , the companion of the Apostle Paul, calls this day the eighth day, in distinction from the seventh day sabbath of the Jews, and which he says is the beginning of another world; and therefore we keep the eighth day, adds he, joyfully, in which Jesus rose from the dead, and being manifested, ascended unto heaven: and this day was known by the ancients by the name of the Lord's day; as by Ignatius f26 , Irenaeus f27 , Tertullian f28 , Origen f29 , and others; for it must be some day that was known by this name, otherwise it is mentioned to no purpose, because it would not be distinctive from others; for which reason it cannot merely design the day in which John saw this vision, because the Lord appeared on it to him, for this would not distinguish it from any other day.

Some have conjectured that this was not the weekly Lord's day observed by the Christians, but the anniversary of Christ's resurrection; and so the Ethiopians still call Easter Schambatah Crostos, the sabbath of Christ: to understand it of the former is best. Now, though John was driven from the house and worship of God, and could not join with the saints in the public worship of that day; yet he was employed in spiritual contemplations and exercises, and was under a more than ordinary influence of the Spirit of God; and his spirit or soul was wholly intent upon, and taken up with divine and spiritual things, with visions and representations that were made unto his mind, which he perceived in his spirit, and not with the organs of his body; he was in an ecstasy of spirit, and knew not scarcely whether he was in the body or out of it: and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet ; which was the voice of the Son of God, as appears by what it uttered, ( Revelation 1:11); and is afterwards said to be as the sound of many waters; and it was behind him, as in ( Isaiah 30:21), it came to him at an unawares, and surprised him, while he was in deep meditation on spiritual things: and it was a very great one; it was the voice of a great person, of the Son of God, and expressed great things, and was very sonorous and loud, it was like the sound of a trumpet; and this was partly to awaken the attention of John to it, and partly to express the certainty of the relation he gives of what it said; had it been a low muttering voice, it might be questioned whether John rightly understood it, and whether he might not be mistaken in the account of what he heard; but it being so loud and clear, there is no room for such a doubt.

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 9-11 - It was the apostle's comfort that he did not suffer as an evil-doer but for the testimony of Jesus, for bearing witness to Christ as the Immanuel, the Saviour; and the Spirit of glory and of God rested upo this persecuted apostle. The day and time when he had this vision wa the Lord's day, the Christian sabbath, the first day of the week observed in remembrance of the resurrection of Christ. Let us who cal him "Our Lord," honour him on his own day. The name shows how thi sacred day should be observed; the Lord's day should be wholly devote to the Lord, and none of its hours employed in a sensual, worldl manner, or in amusements. He was in a serious, heavenly, spiritual frame, under the gracious influences of the Spirit of God. Those wh would enjoy communion with God on the Lord's day, must seek to dra their thoughts and affections from earthly things. And if believers ar kept on the Lord's holy day, from public ordinances and the communio of saints, by necessity and not by choice, they may look for comfort i meditation and secret duties, from the influences of the Spirit; and by hearing the voice and contemplating the glory of their beloved Saviour from whose gracious words and power no confinement or outwar circumstances can separate them. An alarm was given as with the soun of the trumpet, and then the apostle heard the voice of Christ.
