The other humans will celebrate over them (Rev 11:10)

“The inhabitants

Of the earth

Will rejoice

Over them.

They will celebrate

By exchanging presents

With each other,

Because these two prophets

Had been a torment

To the inhabitants

Of the earth.”

καὶ οἱ κατοικοῦντες ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς χαίρουσιν ἐπ’ αὐτοῖς καὶ εὐφραίνονται, καὶ δῶρα πέμψουσιν ἀλλήλοις, ὅτι οὗτοι οἱ δύο προφῆται ἐβασάνισαν τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς.

John said, “The inhabitants (καὶ οἱ κατοικοῦντες) of the earth (ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς) will rejoice (χαίρουσιν) over them (ἐπ’ αὐτοῖς).  They will celebrate (καὶ εὐφραίνονται) by exchanging presents with each other (καὶ δῶρα πέμψουσιν ἀλλήλοις), because these two prophets (ὅτι οὗτοι οἱ δύο προφῆται) had been a torment (ἐβασάνισαν) to the inhabitants (τοὺς κατοικοῦντας) of the earth (ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς).”  John indicates that all the remaining humans on earth were rejoicing over the death of these two witnesses.  They celebrated by exchanging gifts with each other.  Most humans had thought that these two witnesses were tormenting all the other humans here on earth.  They were happy that they were gone, after their three and half year stay in sackcloth.  Have you ever seen anyone be happy because someone else has died?
