The angel raised his right hand to heaven (Rev 10:5)

“Then the angel

Whom I saw standing

In the sea

And on the land,


His right hand

To heaven.”

Καὶ ὁ ἄγγελος, ὃν εἶδον ἑστῶτα ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, ἦρεν τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ τὴν δεξιὰν εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν,

John said, “Then the angel (Καὶ ὁ ἄγγελος), whom I saw (ὃν εἶδον) standing (ἑστῶτα) in the sea (ἐπὶ τῆς θαλάσσης) and on the land (καὶ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς), raised (ἦρεν) his right hand (τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ τὴν δεξιὰν) to heaven (εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν).”  Next John said that he saw the angel who had one foot on the land and the other in the sea raise up his right hand to heaven.  Something was going to happen with him.  This looks like a connection between land, sea, and the heavens.  Have you ever seen a person with one foot in water and the other on dry land?
