The Book of Revelation 19:6

Lord God Omnipotent

“And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.” (Rev. 19:6 KJV)

The great multitude in heaven continues to worship God together because He has established His reign and destroyed Babylon, showing that He is all-powerful. Their praise is so loud they sound like many waters and mighty thunderings. Even a medium-sized waterfall makes such as loud noise that it’s difficult to hear anything else while standing near it. This sounds would be as loud as many waterfalls together. The words ‘great’, ‘many’, and ‘mighty’ are used to show the emphasis to be given is such a large amount that it’s difficult to imagine.

The description of the voice of many waters and great thunder match that from chapter 14.

2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:” (Rev. 14:2 KJV)

This scene matches the one in chapter 11.

15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.” (Rev. 11:15-17 KJV)
