John 18:6 Fell to the ground [επεσαν χαμαι]
Second aorist active indicative of πιπτω — piptō with first aorist ending (-αν — an). This recoil made them stumble. But why did they step back? Was it the former claim of Jesus (I am, εγω ειμι — egō eimi) to be on an equality with God (John 8:58; John 13:19) or mere embarrassment and confusion or supernatural power exerted by Jesus? B adds Ιησους — Iēsous which must mean simply: “I am Jesus.” [source]

Revelation 5:14 Fell down and worshipped [επεσαν και προσεκυνησαν]
In silent adoration that closes the whole service of praise to the One upon the throne and to the Lamb. As in Revelation 4:10 so here the representatives of the redeemed bow in silent worship.

The one when this vision is dated.The other is not yet come Prophetic second aorist active of ερχομαι — erchomai Charles takes this as the date of this “source” or part of the Apocalypse. But John could himself have used this language in the time of Domitian even if he was the one who had not yet come. The difficulty about counting these emperors is that Galba, Otho, Vitellius reigned so briefly that they hardly merit being included.When he cometh (οταν ελτηι — hotan elthēi). Indefinite temporal clause for the future, with οταν — hotan and the second aorist active subjunctive of ερχομαι — erchomai “whenever he comes.”He must continue a little while Swete takes this to be Titus, who died September 13, 81, after a short reign.
