Revelation 20:7 Commentary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges
The Loosing of Satan, the War of Gog and Magog, the Judgement on the Devil, the Beast, and the False Prophet, Rev 20:7-10
7. Satan shall be loosed ] “for a little season,” as we heard in Rev 20:3. The words are different from the “short time” of Rev 12:12, and we have no reason to understand that they refer to the same period: still the two passages to a certain extent illustrate one another.

The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges
The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges is a biblical commentary set published in parts by Cambridge University Press from 1882 onwards. Anglican bishop John Perowne was the general editor. The first section published was written by theologian Thomas Kelly Cheyne and covered the Book of Micah.
Perowne exercised limited editorial control over the writers of individual commentaries: his aim was "to leave each contributor to the unfettered exercise of his own judgment".
